Comprehensive Assessment, Prevention and Rehabilitation Services at One Clinic
For more than a decade, KMH has been a leading provider of cardiology diagnostic tests and has developed the International Heart Institute (IHI), directed by Arvinder Grover, M.D., F.R.C.P., (C), F.A.C.C.. This High Risk Clinic is specifically designed for patients who either suffer from Coronary Artery Disease or who are not yet diagnosed with cardiac disease but have multiple cardiac risk factors, placing them at risk for vascular events. Referred patients will be genuinely motivated to make the lifestyle changes necessary to gain control of their cardiac risk profile.
Through a multi-disciplinary approach, Cardiologists and Internal Medicine Specialists, as well as other health care professionals, help empower your patients with knowledge about their health risks and provide non-pharmacological and pharmacological strategies to implement day-to-day.
A progress report is provided to the referring physician every three months and at one year.
Services are customized for each individual client’s needs and include case reviews, specialist consultations, in-clinic counseling, and training seminars to effectively implement lifestyle changes and to foster return-to-work and life-long wellness behaviours.
