Heart Failure Clinic
The Heart Failure Clinic at The Jackson Clinic is to help patients prevent heart failure and reduce repeated hospital admissions. The multidisciplinary approach involves cardiologist Dr. Tamjeed Arshad with The Jackson Clinic and pharmacists who work together to create a comprehensive health plan for patients with heart failure. The clinic focuses on the patient's symptoms, dietary habits, and medication compliance to ensure a healthy recovery or to prevent heart failure.
Heart Failure Usually Occurs in Patients Who Have:

The Heart Failure Clinic is now able to remotely monitor heart symptoms and pre-empt hospitalization by implanting sensors in the patient’s pulmonary artery.
