Our Mission

HeartPoint has been created by medical professionals to provide patients with a source of credible information about heart disease. Having any type of disorder of the heart can be scary- we're here so that you understand your heart, and how to take care of it with the best graphic and written explanations we can muster.

Our Perspective

We maintain this site from the perspective of physicians, physicians assistants, and nurses who are still very active in clinical practice. Over the years, we have come to recognize that it is not only our knowledge of the subject, but our ability to teach patients which will provide success in medical care. With all of the "new research" out there, it's easy to forget just how much we know. Furthermore, there is a tendency to let controversy obscure what we agree on. Patients will be much more successful if we would put those things that are simple and most of us agree on into practice!!
