Cardiology & Heart Care

Do you know your risk for heart disease? Heart disease can run in the family. Risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar can significantly increase your chances of developing heart disease. Habits like smoking, eating a high-fat diet, not exercising, alcohol use, and obesity can also contribute to heart disease. The good news is that these risks can be managed. Call (903) 877-7161 to make an appointment with our team of experts at UT Health North Campus.
