Follow Your Heart

A heart attack is a life-changing experience and recovery can be a long process, requiring you to make big changes in your life. Over a million people in the U.S. suffer a heart attack each year, but it is possible to resume a healthy life with quality follow-up care.

Heart attack survivor, Nick Modrcin, talks about what keeps him coming back to the Tri-County Heart Institute time after time.

Also, join Dr. Alvarez every second Saturday of the month for Walk With a Doc. Participants will enjoy a brief presentation on an important health topic followed by a “walk-at-your-own-pace” lead by Dr. Alvarez.

Do Your Heart Good

The month of February is dedicated to heart health awareness. And one of the best ways to ward off heart disease is prevention.

Prevention comes in many forms: a healthy diet, regular check ups and a commitment to daily exercise.

Dr. Nitza Alvarez, cardiologist at the Tri-County Heart Institute explains the role of exercise in preventing a heart attack.
