It’s a tough pill to swallow—heart disease is the number one killer of Americans (and in fact is the leading cause of death for people worldwide.) This is why understanding how the heart works and what we all can do to maintain a healthy heart are such important topics.

Safi Haq, MD, cardiothoracic surgeon with Our Lady of Lourdes Health, joins us on this episode of The Doctor Will Hear You Now.  Dr. Haq explains how our hearts work, how they change as we age, and what health choices we can all make to improve our heart health.

Listen and hear Dr. Haq’s passion for his patients’ cardiovascular health, and his practical tips for healthy living. Your heart will thank you!
