We want to assure you that the we are here for you. While the coronavirus has changed much of our daily lives, one thing that has remained constant is our commitment to providing you with the best, safest care possible.
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.
For more than a decade, our preventive cardiologists and nurse practitioner have worked with referring providers to reduce the risk of heart attacks in patients with severe cholesterol disorders.
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.

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.
We treat patients who have:
Severe cholesterol disorders
Poor cholesterol control despite medication
Intolerance to cholesterol-lowering medication
Personal or family histories of early coronary heart disease
What to Expect
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.
