I am a young mother and it is so refreshing to have my kids seen by the person who I saw as a child. Just like years ago, He is so personable and still has the caring demeanor that I received as a child. I am able to see my children ease into a doctors appt. which can be challenging and anxiety provoking! The minute I walked into the door, you can tell that they care and the ease of that makes me know that the kids are are in good hands.

Dr. Villavicencio is a wonderful physician the way she explains things and took time with me as well as my children over the last year is unique. She never rushed me or made me feel like she was on a schedule. Her knowledge and bedside manner is excellent I highly recommend her.
Tips & Advices
The main difference separating a heart attack from heart failure is in the underlying reasons for the occurrence. Hearts attacks can be traced to blockages in arteries and acute flares, while heart failure is more likely to be due to congenital heart disease and a more developed condition.
Arrhythmia is an abnormal beating of the heart that may feel like it comes at a fluttering, accelerated, or otherwise irregular pace. While in many cases these occurrences can be infrequent, benign and go away on their own, if persistent, they may require further consultation with a cardiologist.
Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fatty body compound used to produce hormones. It becomes a problem for heart health when there are high levels of bad cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which can lead to arterial congestion.
Visits to a cardiologist typically entail a doctor reviewing and assessing your health, and more specifically within the context of your heart health. It is important to prepare for appointments by having a list of medications and any documents related to your medical history. Some tests (like EKGs) may be administered on a first visit.
Invasive cardiologists are distinguished from non-invasive cardiologists for their ability to perform a number of specialized procedures, including pacemaker and defibrillator insertions, cardioversions and emergent angioplasties.
