Heart Failure Clinic


We under­stand the impor­tance of con­tin­ued care for those liv­ing with acute chron­ic heart fail­ure (CHF). At our Heart Fail­ure Clin­ic, our nurse prac­ti­tion­ers pro­vide com­pre­hen­sive care for CHF patients by opti­miz­ing diet, flu­id and med­ica­tion mon­i­tor­ing, IV diuret­ics, lab draws, ongo­ing care and more. With a refer­ral from your car­di­ol­o­gist, the DMG Heart Fail­ure Clin­ic can help make your CHF more manageable.

We offer the fol­low­ing services:

  • CHF man­age­ment with med­ica­tion opti­miza­tion – Patients with CHF require opti­miza­tion of CHF guide­line med­ica­tions. Our nurse prac­ti­tion­ers uti­lize these guide­lines along with fre­quent office vis­its to achieve symp­tom relief and improve­ment in heart function.
  • Diet & flu­id opti­miza­tion – Diet edu­ca­tion on sodi­um and flu­id intake is required ther­a­py. These guide­lines will be reviewed at your ini­tial office vis­it and con­tin­ued through­out all HFC visits.
  • IV Diuret­ics – IV diuret­ics are used to man­age acute flu­id accu­mu­la­tion and can be giv­en at office vis­its to help pre­vent hos­pi­tal­iza­tion and pro­mote relief of symptoms.
  • Med­ica­tion mon­i­tor­ing – Med­ica­tions are reviewed in con­junc­tion with cur­rent AHA/HFSA/ACC guide­lines in order to pro­mote improve­ment and sta­bi­liza­tion in heart func­tion and symp­tom management.
  • Same day vis­it labs – Labs can be drawn in office and results will be pro­vid­ed with­in 30 minutes.
