General and cardiovascular medicine

General and cardiovascular medicine

The first contact for patients is usually with a general practitioner or family doctor who provides general and specialized cardiovascular care. These doctors generally take responsibility for providing comprehensive and continuous care, and focus on the treatment and prevention of disease and the maintenance of health, based on the patient’s personality and living environment.

Cardiovascular medicine

The objectives of cardiovascular medicine are to prevent cardiovascular disease, help people at risk, and improve the health of people with heart disease, by providing information, consultations, support, and a personalized exercise program.
