The Stanford Familial Coronary Risk Clinic is a special focus within the Preventive Cardiology Clinic, providing comprehensive, compassionate care to individual patients with early-onset coronary disease or strong risk factors for coronary disease, as well as their family members who may also be at increased risk.

Our goal is to comprehensively evaluate a patient’s risk and to provide the most effective measures to slow or stop the progression of atherosclerosis for both primary and secondary prevention.

Individualized action plans are developed to determine the optimal approach for each patient, which include lifestyle interventions and when necessary, medications. Electronic medical records provide patients with secure on-line access to health information and communication.
