Carroll Heart Center is focused on providing high quality, personalized cardiac and medical care. Our practice has been in Westminster for over 35 years and well established within the community. We work hard to accommodate all of our patients' needs and always strive to provide the latest advances in medical care.  We are a multispecialty group made up of three physicians and a physician assistant providing both cardiology and internal medicine services. 

Our Cardiology Practice 

We focus on diagnosing and treating acute cardiac problems but also believe in the importance of reducing the risk of future cardiovascular conditions. We offer a wide range of diagnostic and screening tests that assess the presence and risk of heart disease, peripheral arterial disease, stroke, rhythm problems and heart failure.  All of the recommended tests are either provided in our office or at a local center for convenient access to highly specialized cardiac testing.  Please click on the Services tab above for more information on different types of testing.

Vein Clinic

We provide in-office screening to diagnose chronic venous insufficiency that can be the cause of spider veins, varicose veins, and sometimes skin ulceration.  For appropriate patients we also recommend  treatment of abnormal veins with an outpatient office based procedure in which the abnormal vein is closed.  Please click on the Vein Clinic tab above for a patient self-assessment, FAQs and more general information about diagnosis and treatment for significant chronic venous insufficiency.

Our imaging center is located within our office complex at the Poole Road Medical Center.  Our cardiac PET stress tests are performed here under the supervision of our cardiologists.
