Pacific Heart & Vascular

Dameron-affiliated Pacific Heart & Vascular Cardiac Care Center provides advanced, state-of-the-art cardiac and cardiovascular care for patients in the Stockton and Lodi area in California's Northern Central Valley. Established in 1991, it is an accredited provider of nuclear cardiology and echocardiography services.


Pacific Heart & Vascular's cardiology team includes physicians that are board certified in cardiovascular disease with additional board certification in the areas of nuclear, echocardiography, arrhythmia management, venous disease and interventional cardiology. These physicians have trained in some of the nation's most reputable cardiology programs and represent the best of modern heart care practice.


Our Approach

To help ensure your best health, we take a more proactive approach than many cardiologists. This means we address problems early, especially things like cholesterol and high blood pressure that can lead to more serious concerns later on. We use the same approach for arrhythmia and heart failure management.


Sometimes the most appropriate thing we can do is to intervene for certain problems. With fellowship training and board certification in interventional procedures, we can perform various treatments (interventions) to repair blockages, remove clots and restore your blood flow. We know, however, that interventions are not always the right treatment. Our advanced training and skill mean we recommend and perform the procedures only when they are truly necessary.
