Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida: Getting to the Heart of the Matter

Numbers don’t lie. Approximately 79,400,000 Americans—that’s one in three adults—are living with cardiovascular disease.

Not only is cardiovascular disease the top killer in the United States, but that’s also the case around the world. According to the American Heart Association, 31 percent of all deaths globally were from cardiovascular disease, stroke accounted for 11.8 percent of all deaths and 16.9 million people worldwide had a first stroke in 2010.

When heart issues are a concern—whether for yourself or a family member—you want the best care possible. The board-certified providers and entire staff at Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida know you want more than facts and competent care. You need the peace of mind that comes from conscientious, personal treatment that includes all aspects of health: physical, mental and emotional.

The team of highly experienced, board-certified cardiologists at Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida use the latest technological and medical advances available in cardiology today. But they are also aware that patients want to be understood, reassured and treated with respect. Each physician and staff member realizes that people have many options when it comes to health care. When you choose to put your trust in Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida, they take that seriously.

In April 2015, Urban Cardiology, founded by partners and longtime board-certified cardiologists Dr. Paul Urban and Dr. Premranjan Singh, merged with Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida. This merger sought to provide patients with even more comprehensive care and ancillary services in-house, and that’s exactly what it accomplished.

For example, the practice has its own cardiology catheterization lab in Ocala, which offers a range of diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures.

Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida’s physicians specialize in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all diseases of the heart. Services include cardiac wellness and prevention as well as diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease, valve disease, hypertension, CVD, heart rhythm conditions and congestive heart failure.

At some medical offices, patients feel like they’re simply part of the process. That “lost in the shuffle” experience doesn’t happen with the doctors and health care professionals at Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida. Each staff physician takes the approach of developing a medical partnership with the patient, working with their best interest in mind. They take time to educate patients to increase their comfort level and eliminate any surprises about a procedure.

“We listen to what our patients have to say, because they are more than just a number to us,” notes Dr. Singh. “We strive to present each patient with the best options for their cardiovascular medical care and work with them to select the option that works best for them.”

Continuity of care is vital anytime you’re dealing with heart issues. At Cardiovascular Institute of Central Florida, you’ll benefit from a customized treatment plan designed around your specific health needs. Electronic medical records facilitate quick and thorough treatment, whether you’re in one of their offices or at a local hospital.
