I view cardiology as an exciting field which is constantly searching for novel ways to improve a patient’s quality of life. Of particular interest, are emerging technologies which allow earlier diagnosis and less invasive treatment methods for relief of cardiovascular symptoms. I urge each of my patients to enjoy life’s indulgences in moderation, get plenty of sleep and exercise, and listen to their body. ~Ronald J. Polinsky, Jr., MD, FACC
