"Take care of your heart, and it woll take care of you!"

A recent study found that those who took care of their cardiovascular health, and scored well on the American Heart Association's "Simple Seven" measures, also had big reductions in other major diseases. J Am Heart Assoc. 2016;5:e003954 doi: 10.1161/JAHA.116.003954.

Michael J. Wong, M.D.,F.A.H.A.

Fellow of the American Heart Association

Board Certified in Clinical Lipidology and Internal Medicine.

Practice limited to Cardiology.

Dr. Michael Wong has practiced Cardiology in Los Angeles for over 40 years.  A graduate of Stanford University, he earned his M.D. at George Washington University Medical School in Washington D.C.   He did his residency and Cardiology fellowship at UCLA Wadsworth VA Hospital in West Los Angeles.  He is a long-time volunteer at the American Heart Association, which recently made him a Fellow of the AHA.  He has served on local, regional, and national boards of AHA and won awards for his work, including Physician of the Year.

Doctor Wong is the Co-Chair of Lipidologists of Los Angeles, and sets the agenda for the group, which meets quarterly at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.  These are Cardiologists and other medical professionals from the greater Los Angeles area, and speakers are selected from among those who are in the forefront of research and medical practice in the country.

Beginning in the 1990s, Dr. Wong has focused entirely on preventive cardiology.  In 2007, he was Board-Certified in Clinical Lipidology, or the study of cholesterol.  There are still only several hundred doctors in the country who have earned this certification.  When asked about his specialty, Dr. Wong says, “We try to keep our patients out of the hospital.”  We use the most sophisticated diagnostic tests to understand and calibrate a patient’s risk of an adverse event.  We counsel lifestyle measures to address those risks, and prescribe medications when necessary.  We also have external counter pulsation (ECP) therapy available at our office for those who can be helped by this modality, which is noninvasive.

How We Work

Heart disease (which can lead to a heart attack or stroke) is the number-one killer of both men and women in the United States, accounting for almost 30 percent of all American deaths. But heart disease doesn’t give obvious clues. In fact, most people don’t know they have heart disease until they have their first heart attack. At HeartCare, we specialize in diagnosing your unique personal condition, and from that, developing a customized plan of action to prevent future heart attack or stroke. We begin by seeking answers in your own blood. Advanced lipid (blood) testing may find heart attack and stroke risks undetectable by traditional tests. Then we compare our findings against your current diet, medications, and lifestyle and recommend specific changes to improve your condition.
