Procedures (diagnostic testing, cardiac and vascular interventions) are provided by Coastal Cardiology’s team of dedicated health professionals. Nuclear stress testing, echocardiography, stress echocardiography, arterial and venous ultrasound, ambulatory electrocardiogram (ECG), ambulatory blood pressure monitors, cardiac angiography and peripheral vascular angiography provide valuable information to evaluate heart health. Coastal Cardiology is fully accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) and Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Laboratories (ICANL).
Interventional procedures such as coronary angioplasty and stent placement, peripheral vascular angioplasty and stent placement, pacemaker implantation, implantable cardiac defibrillator implantation and cardioversion address specific, serious cardiovascular concerns. Coastal Cardiology is proud to partner with French Hospital Medical Center during these interventions. These procedures, coordinated with ongoing care and medical therapies, are designed to minimize damage, prevent future challenges and improve patients’ quality of life.

Coastal Cardiology is also proud to offer Chronic Care Management (CCM) services. This innovative model “connects the dots” between patients, their healthcare needs and available resources. Enrolled patients receive recurring phone-based support to maintain wellness, prevent repeat hospitalizations, coordinate among members of their healthcare team and address areas of concern, such as medication management. To participate, patients must be Medicare Part B beneficiaries with two or more chronic conditions.
