Cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, affects more than 80 million Americans and is the leading cause of death in Georgia. Whether you're at risk for heart disease or need emergency care or treatment, Piedmont Athens Regional Cardiology and Cardiac Vascular Center teams are for you.
Heart attack symptoms include: severe or mild chest pain (which can even feel like extreme indigestion), shortness of breath, nausea, prolonged coughing, dizziness and sweating.
We offer you a world-class cardiology team close to home. Our cardiologists are experts in their specialties who continually perform life-changing procedures for patients.
Our Cardiac Vascular Center is accredited by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. This means we demonstrate the highest level of expertise and care for all patients with chest pain. Our quality-of-care process allows us to reduce time to treatment during the early stages of a heart attack -- when treatments are most effective. It also lets us better observe patients.
