Here at the Lifespan Cardiovascular Institute, your safety is our top priority. As experts in cardiovascular disease, we also know completing a treatment plan is associated with the best outcomes for patients. That is why we worked closely with our infection prevention and infectious diseases teams to be able to provide the care you need in a safe environment.

Consult with a Board-Certified Cardiologist

Your primary care physician may recommend outpatient or inpatient consultation with a board-certified cardiologist. Our experts at the Lifespan Cardiovascular Institute are available seven days a week for consultation and will provide a recommendation to you and your doctor the same day. We look at all general cardiology issues and can arrange subspecialty consultation if necessary for coronary care, heart rhythm disorders, surgery, congenital heart disease and early intervention to prevent future cardiac disease.
