Lowering Your Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
Proactive steps like not smoking, maintaining cardiac fitness and controlling abnormal blood cholesterol play a critical role in avoiding a first or recurrent cardiovascular event, like a heart attack, stent, bypass or stroke.
The Cardiovascular Institute’s Lipid and Prevention Program is dedicated to reducing the risk of first and recurrent heart attacks in at-risk adults.
Today, we provide the only cardiology-based prevention practice in Rhode Island where referred patients undergo clinical diagnosis and treatment of cholesterol disorders by practitioners who have achieved national board certification or accreditation in clinical lipidology.
We treat patients who have:
We provide a clinical diagnosis for every patient based on his or her baseline cholesterol profile, family history and, if needed, advanced lab testing. We tailor diet, exercise and medication recommendations to each patient’s disorder and level of cardiovascular risk. We are available for consultation and follow-up, or consultation only. We work in collaboration with our patients’ primary care physicians, providing updates after every visit, and evaluate self-referred patients as well.
For an appointment or to make a referral to The Lipid and Prevention Program, please call 401-606-1100 (East Greenwich office) or 401-606-1004 (East Providence office). If you are a patient or provider, please provide past and recent cholesterol test results to us before or at the time of the initial visit.
