The physicians at Montgomery Cardiovascular Associates long recognized that optimal cardiovascular health went beyond expert diagnostics, surgery, and drugs.  They knew that good heart health was also about lifestyle – things in the control of their patients.  And at the top of that lifestyle list was exercise.
