Cardiovascular Health

Steth And Derm

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the world, especially because of myocardial infarction and stroke. These are caused by the progressive build-up over the years of cholesterol plaques occluding heart and brain arteries.

Dr. Paciello has a special interest in cardiology and cardiovascular prevention and specialises in early identification and correction of risk factors that lead to atherosclerosis.

We offer cardiovascular prevention consultations where, alongside detailed risk assessment, we discuss whether more in-depth screening would be appropriate. This is especially recommended for men over 45 and women over 55 years old and for those with diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease.
