The internet provides a wealth of healthcare information for consumers -- some of it good and some of it questionable.  We have provided links to a number of internet resources that we consider relevant to our patients' overall health and cardiovascular education.

The content of websites may change, however, and should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions.  You should not use the information on any website to diagnose or treat a health problem or disease without consulting a qualified healthcare provider.

Cardiovascular Specialists has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content of the websites for which we provide links.

Please let us know if you have other favorite healthcare-related sites that we can share with our patients.  Similarly, if you have concerns about the information provided on any of the sites whose links are provided here, please contact us so that we may determine if they are appropriate to continue as links.
