Richard A. Stein, MD and Nieca Goldberg, MD, medical directors
The Cardiac Rehab Program is specifically designed to lower your risk of heart attack, improve your general level of fitness and promote overall health and well-being. Included are individual exercise prescriptions based on your medical evaluation and progress in the supervised exercise sessions.
We offer a versatile, mainstream exercise program in a pleasant, safe and supportive atmosphere and recommend that you exercise at least three days per week in our supervised exercise sessions.
Your group exercise sessions include multi-station aerobic exercises in our 5,000 square-foot state-of-the-art Cardio Court. These sessions are supervised by certified exercise physiologists specially trained to work in cardiac exercise and prevention. Although you will be exercising with many others who share similar needs, your program will be designed for you specifically.
