Sports Cardiology

Sports Cardiology San Luis Obispo (SLO) County CAAre you an athlete? At Premier Heart and Vein Care, we evaluate and treat cardiac and vascular symptoms with the goal of keeping athletes active. We are experienced with treating athletes and are committed to offering treatment that allows them to continue playing sports whenever possible. Our sports cardiology services ensure that potentially serious cardiac and vascular disorders are addressed early on.

Dr. Stevens has served as a team physician for both the US Olympic Team and US Maccabiah Team, as well has competed for many years both nationally and internationally in track and cycling, so he thoroughly understands athletes’ needs. We work closely with athletes to evaluate their symptoms and recommend treatment options that allow them to stay active in sports. Our sports cardiology services cater to each individual’s specific needs but may include any of the following:

  • Review of athletic and medical history
  • Electrocardiogram and echocardiogram
  • Laboratory testing
  • Cardiovascular examination and testing as appropriate
  • Sports nutrition consultation

Remember: competitive athletes are not immune to cardiovascular disease and sudden cardiac death, either. If you have known cardiovascular disease, have experienced an unexplained decline in athletic performance, have uncomfortable symptoms during or immediately after exertion, or have a family history of sudden death at a young age, consider coming in for a sports cardiology consultation. At Premier Heart and Vein Care, we’re dedicated to helping athletes stay active and continue participating in sports while ensuring their safety.
