A cardiologist specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. The cardiologist will carry out tests, and they may some do procedures, such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty, or inserting a pacemaker. Heart disease relates specifically to the heart, while cardiovascular disease affects the heart, the blood vessels, or both. Dr. Flynn has been certified in the CMS Meaningful Use program, which allows him to stay up to date in medical record technology. He is able to provide patients up-to-date care by using the latest technological equipment and methods.
