Women worry about breast cancer but don’t know the facts about women & heart attacks. Heart attacks are the number ONE cause of death in women! There is much concern that women’s heart attacks are more often misdiagnosed then men’s. The reason is that women’s symptoms of a heart attack greatly differ from the symptoms that men experience. This, coupled with women not being educated enough on the need to be concerned about heart health and what their risk really is, causes a lack in proper treatment.Know the symptoms and know your personal risk and what you can do to prevent a heart attack. If you, or someone you know, suffered a heart attack or permanent heart damage because their attack was misdiagnosed, call our office to discuss the details with a member of our medical malpractice dept.
