Focus

The Preventive Cardiology Clinic is part of the comprehensive array of cardiac care offered at UWHC. Our physicians, who specialize in cholesterol disorders and other preventive cardiology care, will work closely with patients and their primary care physicians to develop an individualized treatment program.
