Cardiac diagnostic imaging
We offer a wide range of diagnostic imaging technology designed for heart and vascular conditions, including:
Cardiac magnetic resonance image (MRI)
We can use a cardiac MRI instead of a computerized tomography (CT) scan to help recognize various heart conditions. An MRI of the heart can help us assess signs and symptoms of conditions such as:
- Cardiac tumors
- Congenital heart diseases
- Heart failure
- Heart valve diseases
Coronary calcium scan
A coronary calcium scan measures cardiac risk and helps us assess your future likelihood of having a heart attack. It is non-invasive, only takes approximately 15 minutes to perform and provides easily-readable results within a couple of days. Our cardiologists find this to be the most accurate test for measuring cardiac risk, and we offer it for only $69—no matter what insurance provider you have.
Our cardiovascular services
Our cardiologists are experts in treating a wide variety of cardiovascular and heart conditions.
Arrhythmia management and treatment
Arrhythmias occur when the heart's electrical signals short circuit. This causes uncoordinated or irregular contractions of the heart muscle. These irregular contractions can cause an abnormally slow heartbeat (bradycardia) or abnormally fast (tachycardia). Different types of arrhythmias can occur in different chambers of the heart. AFib is the most common type of arrhythmia, originating from the upper chamber (atria).
At MountainStar Medical Group, our electrophysiology physicians work closely with surgeons and cardiologists to ensure coordination of care. If you receive a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), a dedicated nurse will follow up with all of your monitoring appointments so you get the quality care you deserve.
We can help you control symptoms and manage arrhythmias with:
- Primary and secondary stroke prevention—coordinated multidisciplinary anticoagulation clinic, left atrial appendage closures and AFib detection
- Rhythm control—antiarrhythmic medication management, percutaneous ablation, and hybrid, isolated, or concomitant surgical ablation
- Rate control—specialized services that focus on preventing or improving heart failure
- Anticoagulation—blood thinning medication, such as warfarin, that prevents blood clots and stroke
Heart attack treatments
We offer lifesaving, minimally invasive procedures that help clear blocked arteries and improve blood flow to the heart muscle. After a heart attack, other procedures might be needed to improve structure and function of the heart, restore blood flow near damaged tissue or regulate heart rhythm.
We also offer procedures to treat chronic chest pain and reduce your risk of further heart problems. Our team can help you determine the best road to recovery and path for prevention.
Heart failure treatment and care
We offer a heart failure program and treatment that involves managing symptoms and reducing the risk of further damage. Our surgical procedures can sometimes repair other conditions that contribute to heart failure and help the heart work more efficiently.
Our advanced heart failure program offers:
- 24-hour on-call support
- Care coordination with other medical providers
- Comprehensive patient and family education
- Lab studies to determine treatment needs and monitor therapy effectiveness
- Medical therapy
- Supportive services, such as nutrition, pharmacy and social services
- Treatment of related conditions, including anemia, sleep apnea, diabetes mellitus and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Urgent evaluation for clinical status change to decrease emergency room (ER) visits
- Weekly outpatient assessments to determine need for IV diuretics or medication titration
Heart valve disorder management
If you have a heart valve disorder, our cardiologists and surgeons will work together to determine the best option for you. Our structural heart team takes on challenging cases such as repairing or replacing several valves or correcting unsuccessful valve surgeries.
Our comprehensive approach will determine if medication or a surgical procedure will be most effective for you.
Heart and vascular surgery
We provide an extensive range of innovative heart and vascular surgeries, including:
- Cardiac device implantation—to monitor and manage heart issues such as arrhythmias and heart failure
- Mini-maze surgery—a minimally invasive procedure for atrial fibrillation (AFib)
- Transmyocardial revascularization (TMR)—an innovative, clinically proven treatment for angina (chest pain)

- Ambulatory monitoring
- Ankle-brachial index
- Atherosclerosis atherectomy
- Atherosclerosis endarterectomy
