Bay Area Heart Center is a single-specialty cardiology practice serving St. Petersburg, Florida and the surrounding communities. Our cardiovascular specialists provide compassionate, advanced care including prevention, diagnostics, and treatment for common cardiovascular conditions including:

  • Angina

Angina is chest pain or discomfort that occurs when your heart doesn’t get as much blood and oxygen as it needs.

Learn more about Angina from the American Heart Association.

  • Aortic aneurysms
Aortic aneurysms

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a bulge in the large artery that supplies blood to the belly, pelvis and legs. This bulging occurs without symptoms, unless the artery ruptures. If that happens, severe internal bleeding creates an extremely urgent medical situation.

  • Arrhythmia
An Arrhythmia is an abnormal rhythm of the heart and is caused by problems with your heart’s electrical system.

  • Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis causes arteries to narrow, weaken and be less flexible.

Learn more about Atherosclerosis from the American Heart Association.

  • Atrial fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation

Atrial Fibrillation(also called AFib or AF) is a quivering or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that can lead to stroke and other heart-related complications.

  • Bradycardia

 Bradycardia is a slower than normal heart rate.

  • Cardiomyopathy
An acquired or hereditary disease of heart muscle, this condition makes it hard for the heart to deliver blood to the body, and can lead to heart failure.
Symptoms include breathlessness, swollen legs and feet, and a bloated belly.
Drugs, implanted devices, surgery, and in severe cases, transplant, are treatments.

  • Carotid artery disease
Carotid artery disease
Carotid artery stenosis can be caused by cholesterol build-up in the blood vessels (atherosclerosis). Blood clots can form in this area and travel up to the brain.
This condition may be present for a long time before symptoms appear. When symptoms do occur, stroke or brief stroke-like attacks are common.

  • Claudication

Claudication is a condition in which cramping pain in the leg is induced by exercise, typically caused by obstruction of the arteries.
