What Makes Dr. Ameeta Walia the Best Cardiologist on Long Island?

Being named a New York Times Super Doctor and voted Best Cardiologist on Long Island for three years in a row (2016-2018) are outstanding credentials, and Dr. Ameeta Walia has many more.

What draws patients to her, however, and makes them grateful for her care, is her personal concern for their health and well-being, her responsive approach to their particular medical problems, and her willingness to share her wealth of knowledge and keen insight with those who come to her for help.

With Nassau County offices of Cardiovascular Wellness located in Lake Success and Hicksville, she is easily accessible to patients all over Long Island.

Dr. Ameeta Walia Offers Comprehensive Cardiovascular Services

Patients come to Cardiovascular Wellness for relatively simple medical monitoring as well as for diagnosis and treatment of complex, life-threatening conditions. The broad range of services offered by Dr. Walia includes diagnosis and treatments related to:

  • Heart Attacks
    Heart attacks occur when a blockage creates a clot, preventing the heart from getting the blood and oxygen it needs.
  • Heart Failure
    During heart failure, the pumping of the heart weakens gradually. As the strength of the heartbeats becomes progressively weaker, the heart functions less and less efficiently.
  • Prevention of Heart Disease
    Preventing heart disease should be everyone’s concern, but is especially important for people who have high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes. Dr. Ameeta Walia assists patient in understanding the need to reach and maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, avoid smoking, excessive drinking, and eating fatty or fried foods. At-risk patients have to be monitored for blood pressure and cholesterol levels and may be prescribed medication for one or both of these conditions.

 
 

Cardiovascular Symptoms

Cardiovascular symptoms that may bring patients into our offices include:

  • Leg Swelling is caused by fluid buildup, known as peripheral edema and may be the result of circulatory problems (or problems with the lymphatic system or kidneys)
  • Palpitations, the sensation that the heart has skipped a beat or is fluttering or pounding, may be caused by heart arrhythmia, intense emotion, strenuous exercise, blood loss, caffeine, or certain medications (like asthma inhalers)
  • Heart Arrhythmia is caused by dysfunctional electrical impulses that result in a heart rate that is too fast (tachycardia), too slow (bradycardia), or irregular.
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure) increases the risk of heart disease and stroke and has its own risk factors, which include obesity, excessive alcohol, smoking, and family history.

Due to her impressive range of cardiovascular knowledge and her uncanny ability to ask her patients the right questions, Dr. Ameeta Walia, is an astute diagnostician. She also has the cutting-edge equipment necessary to explore the diferential diagnosis or to confirm her intuitive assessment.

Tests available in her offices include:

  • EKG (electrocardiogram): a noninvasive test that tracks electrical activity in the heart. During this procedure, the patient’s heart rate and heart rhythm are measured and recorded. EKGs are prescribed for patients experiencing palpitations, arrhythmias, chest pains or shortness of breath.
  • Echocardiogram: An ultrasound to assess the health of the chambers and blood vessels of the heart.
  • Stress Test: helps to diagnose coronary heart disease. Stress tests are also used to determine how much exercise a patient’s heart is able to handle.
  • Heart Monitoring: A monitor is worn by the patient for a prescribed period of time, typically from 48 hours to 7 days. The device measures electrical activity and notes when irregularities occur. Heart monitoring is often used to diagnose heart arrhythmias.
  • Pre-operative Clearances to make sure a patient’s heart is strong enough to undergo general anesthesia and surgery are routinely done in our offices and can, if urgent, be done on the same day you contact us.
