Choosing BayCare is Standard Procedure
If you need a heart procedure, making an appointment with BayCare is standard procedure. BayCare hospitals are selected most often for people who need heart care in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties.*
Since the heart is such a vital and complex organ, doctors specialize in different areas related to the heart. If your doctor refers you or a loved one to a heart doctor, it is easy to be overwhelmed by all the different cardiac specialties. If your doctor suspects a heart condition, they will typically refer you to a cardiologist. A cardiologist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of heart disease.
