Women's Heart Center


Did you know that more women than men die of heart disease each year? That's often because some heart disease symptoms in women may be different from those in men. At St. Mary Medical Center, we can help you better understand your unique symptoms and begin to reduce your risk of heart disease.

We offer comprehensive heart screenings, as well as electrocardiograms (EKG), peripheral vascular (PVD) screenings, total cholesterol and glucose screenings, diet and exercise consultations, and assessment by a nurse practitioner or cardiologist as indicated.

And our congestive heart failure program provides one-on-one continuity of care for patients who are living with the condition. If you're diagnosed with congestive heart failure, a registered nurse will help you manage daily diet and exercise to achieve better health and maintain independence outside the hospital.

Hear from Telemetry Nurse Lauren McCullough in this KNBC-TV vignette focusing on how women’s heart attack symptoms are different than men.

Our Medical Director, Serap Sobnosky Erdogdu, M.D.

Dr. Sobnosky graduated from Ankara University Medical School in Turkey with MD degree. She is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, General Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology.
