About Midwest Heart Specialists
Midwest Heart Specialists (MHS) is a nationally recognized group of over 50 physicians including board certified cardiologists, electrophysiologists and heart failure specialists making us one of the largest cardiovascular practices in Illinois. In addition to being board-certified in cardiovascular disease, many MHS physicians are also certified in critical care medicine, internal medicine and emergency medicine. Midwest Heart Specialists provides easy access for patients at its multiple locations throughout the western and northwest suburbs of Chicago, Rockford, Illinois and surrounding areas.
During more than a quarter-century of caring for tens of thousands of patients, we have pioneered dozens of cardiology "firsts" - technologies and treatments we were first to develop, first to use, or first to adapt to patient care. But our reputation for practicing medicine with equal parts of compassion and excellence may be our finest achievement.
We offer all of the latest leading-edge cardiovascular tests and therapies, most right in our offices. When new ones come along that meet our criteria of effectiveness and safety, we make sure our patients have access to them too.
To give you an idea of the diversity of services we make available, here is a thumbnail sketch of our high-tech resources: advanced pharmacological-nuclear tests, echocardiography, carotid ultrasound, CT ultra fast scan, cardiac catheterization (angiogram, angioplasty and atherectomy radio-frequency), and peripheral vascular testing to diagnose and treat blood vessel blockages in the limbs.
Midwest Heart Foundation, a non-profit research and education foundation, offers patient the most progressive treatments and preventive strategies in strictly supervised clinical trials. The foundation has been involved in major multi-site studies with some of the biggest names in research including Mayo Clinic, Brigham & Women's Hospital at Harvard Medical School and The Cleveland Clinic.
For many patients, we become long-term companions on their wellness journey. They need comprehensive follow up care. Our specialized management programs for high cholesterol, coumadin maintenance, heart failure, arrhythmias, hypertension and congenital abnormalities have a proven track record of life-extending success. Several are regarded as model programs and have been duplicated in practices all over the country.
