Happy and Healthy New Year!
Dr. Caren and Dr. Urman's Heart Health

Our monthly newsletter is intended to raise awareness of heart health-related issues and to encourage our readers to be educated and to take charge of their health and live healthier, more fulfilling lives. One of a doctor’s primary obligations is to educate patients.  In fact the origin of the word ‘doctor’ is (via Old French) from the Latin doctor which means ‘teacher’ (from docere ‘teach’).

This complimentary monthly educational service is for our patients and their families but please forward it to anyone who might find it of interest. Click here to enter our website and learn more about our practice. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or wish to make an appointment.
