The Cleveland Clinic employs 14 cardiologists as of May 2015, according to the Cleveland Clinic website. Benico Barzilai, M.D. is the section head of the Section of Clinical Cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic.
The cardiologists at the Cleveland Clinic treat patients of all ages, utilizing state-of-the-art tests and procedures to diagnose and treat each patient, notes the Cleveland Clinic. Angina, artery issues, heart valve problems and heart failure are some common problems that these doctors treat, but they also treat rare forms of heart disease that other doctors may be unable to handle. The cardiologists use lifestyle modifications, medications and procedures to treat cardiac issues, and they work closely with cardiovascular surgeons when the need for surgical procedures arises.
