Cardiology specialises in cardiac- and cardiovascular diseases and can be considered as a branch of internal medicine. Today cardiac diseases are a major concern in Hungary, particularly as they are among the leading causes of death. Stress, poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, obesity and high cholesterol levels all contribute to the occurrence of cardiac diseases. Besides, several harmful addictions, such as smoking, foster the development of cardiac- and cardiovascular diseases. The occurrence of cardiac diseases is also affected by hereditary factors, so if your family has a history of high cholesterol level or other cardiac diseases, you should participate in screenings more frequently and should pay an outstanding attention to healthy lifestyle. At the cardiology practice of the Szeged Stefánia Clinic, our experienced cardiologist can effectively diagnose and treat cardiac diseases.
At the cardiology practice we treat patients who cope with cardiac and cardiovascular diseases or whose families have a history of such diseases or they have an overworked and stressful lifestyle. At the cardiology practice of the Szeged Stefánia Clinic cardiology screenings are also available; they are especially recommended for those who smoke, are overweight or struggle with diabetes since cardiac and cardiovascular diseases are more likely to occur in such patients. We also recommend the screening examination for those who want to get a complete picture of their health or do sports competitively. Fast laboratory examinations with no waiting periods and funded by the National Health Insurance Fund are also available at the Szeged Stefánia Clinic, so patients can obtain a diagnosis sooner.
Our laboratory services are available with National Health Insurance Fund support. In our clinic you can avoid the typically long queues and waiting periods of the state-funded institutions. At the Szeged Stefánia Clinic you can obtain your laboratory results without waiting and can check them the following day. Your referring physician can monitor your laboratory results via the IT system on his computer.
