VCS is dedicated to educating our patient population. The more you and your family understand about cardiac problems, the more you will be able to participate in your own care. We encourage questions about any diagnosis, treatment, or necessary test. We know that heart-related conditions can be scary and hard to understand. We also know that there is no limit to the amount of heart-related information on the internet.
We created this site with the goal of providing a one-stop resource for credible information that you need to understand your heart condition, test, or treatment. The articles listed in this section are shortened versions of more detailed articles within our Patient Literacy Center. Each of our patients has access to create a personalized profile within our website, so that they may read the complete patient health literacy articles as well as wellness programs, support groups, suggested readings and much more. To learn more about our Patient Literacy Center and patient log-in information, please contact any VCS office.
