Women's Heart Health


Women are born multi-taskers. Whether it’s work, your kids, your partner or your parents—women are often at the center of it all. Making life happen.

Women are also more likely to ignore the symptoms commonly associated with heart disease. In the U.S., more women die from heart disease than any other cause, including cancer. And, more women than men die each year from heart disease. Mercy Medical Group’s team of female cardiologists in Greater Sacramento work with you to treat and prevent heart disease, by addressing specific concerns and warning signs. 

Typical warning signs of heart disease include pressure or squeezing in your chest, soreness in one or both arms, or shortness of breath. Along with these symptoms, women may also experience:
