Georgia's Top Heart Doctors

Powered by Northside

The experienced heart specialists at Northside Hospital can help you take control of your heart health for improved well-being and a more active life. We offer complete cardiology services and cardiovascular support, including community screenings, advanced diagnostics and leading-edge treatments for any heart condition, even the most complex.

Heart Health and Improved Wellness Takes a Team Approach

We diagnose and treat comprehensive cardiovascular conditions such as coronary artery disease, any heart defects you may have been born with and more complex conditions such as advanced heart failure. Our cardiologists can also help manage other conditions that could affect the heart — like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or being overweight.

At Northside, you never have to feel alone in your care. Our board-certified heart specialists work together with other doctors and care teams, so you have the support you need and personalized attention. Our goal is to help you understand and manage heart disease or stroke for improved heart and vascular wellness.   

Champions for Heart Health

Northside has earned advanced recognition for heart and vascular services, such as:

  • Advanced Certification in Heart Failure - Northside Forsyth was the first hospital in metro Atlanta to earn this designation. 
  • Chest Pain Center Accreditation - both Northside Atlanta and Northside Forsyth have received this national accreditation.
  • National accreditation as a Pulmonary Hypertension Care Center (PHCC) - Northside Atlanta was the first in Georgia to earn this recognition from the Pulmonary Hypertension Association for its specialized expertise evaluating and treating patients with high blood pressure of the lungs. 

Community Prevention Services

Northside is just as committed to preventing heart disease as we are to treating it. That’s why we offer a variety of preventive services as well as heart disease and stroke screenings across our communities. Whether you want nutrition advice, diabetes education or to stop smoking, Northside can help you achieve a more heart-healthy lifestyle. 

We also offer ongoing support for those who have advanced heart disease. Our heart failure clinic works together with you and your cardiologist to help you take care of yourself and better manage your disease. 

Expert Diagnosis of Heart Disease

To identify any potential heart issue, Northside doctors combine their expertise with best-in-class technology. Northside was one of the first hospitals in Georgia to use an advanced nuclear medicine camera to more quickly and accurately diagnose heart disease with safer, shorter, and more comfortable exams. We also use advanced cardiac imaging such as MRI and CT technology. 

Innovative Treatments Promote Healing

Northside cardiovascular specialists were the first in Atlanta to fix coronary artery disease with a stent that naturally dissolves after it helps heal the artery. 

We’re also nationally recognized for high-quality results from our nonsurgical Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI). Also called coronary angioplasty, PCI is used to treat obstructive coronary artery disease.

Our cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, and electrophysiologists specialize in other minimally invasive procedures to correct heart issues, too. Some of them include:

  • Pacemakers to keep your heart beating properly
  • Cardiac catheterization to diagnose and repair heart disease issues 
  • Stents to keep your arteries open for improved blood flow

Caring for Your Heart Alongside Your Cancer Treatment

Cardio-Oncology specialists comprehensively assess, monitor, and manage cardiac risks associated with cancer treatments. This ensures that our cancer patients receive the best cancer care without compromising their cardiovascular health.

Healthy Hearts, Healthy Moms

Northside cardiologists work very closely with other clinical specialists across our health system. Cardiologists in our Maternal Heart Health Clinic help perinatologists and obstetricians care for women with preeclampsia. Although preeclampsia is one of the most common complications of pregnancy, this form of high blood pressure can threaten the pregnancy and can cause long-term problems for the mother.
