Introduction

A cardiologist is a doctor who specializes in the treatment of heart diseases and disorders. These doctors can diagnose, evaluate and treat patients who have heart or circulatory defects and they also work with other issues concerning the circulatory system. 

Most cardiologists do not perform surgery, but rather provide their patients with medication to control symptoms of diseases and disorders. Occasionally they will provide treatment using medical devices like stents via very small incisions in the groin or other areas of the body.
