Everyone experiences minor chest pain from time to time, but when does it warrant concern? Is it indigestion or is your body warning you of a more serious problem? If feelings of pressure, heaviness, or tightness in the chest persist, don't put off determining what's wrong. Alert your primary care physician and visit our Gilbert, AZ office for an evaluation, as it might be the cause of an underlying condition or something else. Our cardiologists can rule out the possibility of angina, heart disease, and, most importantly, a heart attack.
At Gilbert Cardiology, Dr. Zaki Lababidi and Dr. Khaled Albasha will run a series of tests to do so and ask questions about your family history to keep your heart in its healthiest shape.
