Resources for Heart Health

Living with heart disease means making a lot of changes. You're likely to have a range of new feelings to deal with. Reach out to the people close to you. Also, support groups can provide helpful advice.

Family and Friends

You may have concerns about making changes in your life. Talk over your feelings with someone you trust. Family and friends often want to help but may not know how. Ask a friend to go to the store with you and pick out healthy foods. Be clear about any physical limits you have, such as limiting the distance you can walk. Support from friends and family not only feels good, it's a great stress reducer.

Patient Reviews

I was diagnosed with persistent AFIB several months ago. I found Dr. Norris by a referral from another physician. Dr. Norris scheduled me for a cardiac ablation without delay. He thoroughly explained the procedure, risks and benefits prior to the procedure. Dr. Norris and his staff exhibited exceptional professionalism and interest in resolving my AFIB. One month post-op I am rhythm and feel great. Thank you Dr. Norris and staff. I truly feel like I have my life back again.
