We had a great visit today with Dr. Jay Schachne from Southcoast Hospitals. He is a cradiologist based at Truesdale in Fall River.

It's National Heart Month and Dr. Schachne discussed many topics with us, including:

  • What is Heart Disease?
  • How dangerous it is to shovel snow?
  • What are the warning signs of a heart attack?
  • Cholesterol levels, what is good and what is bad?
  • How to keep my cholesterol low.
  • The many services available at Southcoast and how you don't have to travel to Boston.They can do everything except heart transplants.
