On Call With Dr. Dave: my interview about women & heart disease

by Carolyn Thomas   ♥   @HeartSisters   

You can tell from watching this interview how much fun it was to chat with Dr. David D’Agate about women’s heart disease. Dr. Dave is a preventive cardiologist in Long Island, New York,  board-certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, and nuclear cardiology – and probably best described by this personal testimonial from one of his heart patients: “extremely knowledgeable, kind and funny.”  My favourite kind of physician.         . .           .          .

Thank you, Dr. Dave, for 18 years of helping your patients become heart-healthy, and for inviting me to chat. This interview was part of a regular patient education series produced for the health channel, Dr. Dave’s 411.

Pour yourself a coffee, sit back, enjoy – and then let us know what you think.

NOTE from CAROLYN:   I wrote more about what to expect when you become a heart patient in my book, A Woman’s Guide to Living with Heart Disease , published by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2017.  You can ask for it at your local library or favourite bookshop, or order it online (paperback, hardcover or e-book) at Amazon, or order it directly from my publisher (use their code HTWN to save 20% off the list price).

  1. Great stuff, Carolyn. Dr. Dave is an influential dude and I’m glad he said he’s going to have you back.

    Until clinicians gain a full understanding of women’s heart health we really, truly need to be our own advocates. It’s scary but necessary.

    It worked for me, though I readily admit I have been blessed to have a great GP who listens, seems to respect me, and has never dismissed me.
