Due to the recent Novel Coronavirus emergency, some locations may be operating with different hours or temporarily closed.

Our Preventive Cardiology and Apheresis Clinic helps people of all ages lower their risk of cardiovascular disease by managing risk factors including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugars, obesity, and smoking.

We are one of only a few practices in the nation to offer onsite lipid apheresis treatment for people with extremely high cholesterol levels who do not respond to, or cannot tolerate, cholesterol-lowering drugs. The treatment works by passing blood through columns that absorb LDL cholesterol.

Our team meets with patients one-on-one and also schedules shared medical appointments to facilitate discussion among people who have a common condition.
