Cardiology care that keeps you healthy and active

Steele Creek is ready to meet the ongoing, life-long healthcare needs of adult cardiology patients with consultative, diagnostic, referral and continuing care services.

We offer medical and surgical treatments for a wide range of cardiovascular diseases and concerns, including:

  • Chest discomfort
  • High cholesterol (hyperlipidemia)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension), including high blood pressure that is resistant to treatment (resistant hypertension) and high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary hypertension)
  • Irregular heartbeat (cardiac arrhythmia), including fast, irregular heart rate in the lower chambers of the heart (atrial fibrillation), rapid heart rate (tachycardia), and slow heart rate (bradycardia)
  • Plaque buildup in major blood vessels near your heart (coronary artery disease)
  • Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis)
  • Pain in the legs and buttocks that can be caused by a narrowing or blockage of an artery (claudication)
  • Mechanical problems with the heart muscle that disrupt the pumping of oxygenated blood and can cause damage to the lungs and kidneys (congestive heart failure, or CHF)
  • Plaque buildup in blood vessels in your legs, arms or stomach (peripheral artery disease/ peripheral vascular disease)
  • Blockage of arteries (critical limb ischemia)
  • Narrowing of the arteries leading to your kidneys (renal artery stenosis) or head and face (carotid artery stenosis)
  • Heart attack (myocardial infarction)
  • Sudden blockage in a lung artery (pulmonary embolism)
  • Blood clots in the leg (deep vein thrombosis, or (DVT)

Services completed by our cardiologists at our clinic include:

  • Initial consultations
  • Second opinions
  • Noninvasive cardiac testing, including stress testing, cardiac ultrasound (echocardiography) and arrythmia monitoring 
  • Diagnosis
  • Referrals to other specialists as needed for continuing care
  • Continuing care, including annual check-ups, preventive and wellness counseling medication management and follow-up care as needed

Additional services 

Our providers can provide, or arrange for you to receive, the following services at Novant Health surgical centers or hospitals:

  • Insertion of stents to widen the carotid artery and prevent stroke (carotid stenting)
  • Minimally invasive surgical treatments (interventional therapies) of pulmonary embolism and DVT
  • Minimally invasive procedures to open blocked coronary arteries to restore blow flow to the heart muscle (angioplasty)
  • Removal of plaque from the inside of a blood vessel (atherectomy)
  • Retrieval of filters used to prevent pulmonary embolisms from the main vein of the leg (inferior vena cava filter retrieval)
  • Limb salvage

Quality cardiology care can help keep you healthy and active

You rely on your heart to do its job 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That’s why it’s important to get expert cardiovascular care when you need it. If you’re experiencing a cardiac symptom such as shortness or breath or a rapid heartbeat, or if your primary care doctor has identified a potential heart problem, our clinic brings advanced diagnostic tools and advanced cardiac care to the Steele Creek community in southwest Charlotte.

Patients can complete echocardiograms and vascular studies in our office. This helps your provider understand your heart and vascular issues and offer needed treatment without unnecessary delay.
