Diagnosis & Imaging
The first step in your healthcare journey is to find the cause of your symptoms. Our cardiology experts provide individualized care to determine a proper diagnosis that will lead to improving quality of life. Lee Health offers many different diagnostic tests depending on your symptoms. We invite you to read more about our tests, what they do, and what they are designed to find.
Once you have been diagnosed, your specialized treatment plan springs into action. This may include medication, surgery, critical care, lifestyle management, and other services tailored directly to you. Our cardiologists and their staff members will walk you through next steps, help you schedule appointments, and follow up with you and your family – as well as your primary care doctor – to ensure everyone is on the same page.
