How wonderful it is to look back on the past year and realize how much you have accomplished. The New Year is the best time to dedicate ourselves to new goals!
This year, aim to do what no one else can do for you, take charge of your health. There is no medication as effective as prevention. Only the sick know the true value of health. Health is the best gift you can receive this Holiday Season and it will keep on giving for years to come.
If you’re already on the right track, please think about how to improve. Even a little change every day will make a huge impact by next years end.
We at the Cardiovascular Institute have committed our lives to raising awareness about heart disease. We encourage you to please adhere to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Consider these to become habits. As we see you succeed we hope you send this message to others. “If you save but one life, it is considered as if you have saved the entire world.”
In May of 2016, we are planning a heart Walk-a-thon. To join our effort against heart disease, please click here to sign up. This event will be at no cost to you. But you must sign up before January 10, 2016. Space is limited, so please sign up now.
From the Cardiovascular Institute family to yours, may your New Year be filled with health and happiness — and may all of your New Year goals and wishes come true. We look forward to seeing you and greeting you with open arms in 2016!
Thank you so much,
Your Friends at The Cardiovascular Institute

The Cardiovascular Institute, founded by Uri M. Ben-Zur, M.D., F.A.C.C, is located in the heart of San Fernando Valley in Tarzana, California. In close proximity to, Encino, Sherman Oaks, Burbank, Calabasas and West Hills. Our practice is open to patients and future medical professionals Sunday through Friday starting at 6AMdaily. We are committed to enhancing the quality of healthcare for all of the residents of the Greater Los Angeles area. Dr. Ben-Zur is an attending physician at Providence Tarzana Medical Center. He offers a wide variety of cardiac services. Radiofrequency ablations for cardiac arrhythmias, pacemaker implantation, coronary stent placement and angioplasty are some of the many procedures we specialize in. As an expert onhypertension, hyperlipidemia, congestive heart failure, and arrhythmias, Dr. Ben-Zur is able to diagnose and treat patients in our new state of the art facility. Almost 60 million Americans suffer from hypertension and cardiovascular related diseases. Due to the nature of these diseases, most patients go undiagnosed until it is too late. Diagnosing these diseases early in life can dramatically decrease the risk for future complications. We are always welcoming new patients for heart related screening and have same day appointments available. Additionally, at the Cardiovascular Institute of Tarzana, California, Dr. Ben-Zur’s staff serves patients in multiple languages! Whether it be Hebrew, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Armenian, Tagalog, Hindi, Urdu, and many more the Cardiovascular Institute will often have someone to serve your language and heart health needs.
Dr. Ben-Zur’s past medical education in electrophysiology and angioplasty is unparalleled. Guided by pioneers in both fields early in his career, he has had the opportunity to gain experience in major academic centers in New York City and San Diego, California. Many of his research projects are featured in various medical journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine and The Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Furthermore, Dr. Ben-Zur has multiple publications for his patients to learn more about their health and how they can prevent diseases by improving their lifestyle through diet and exercise. Our newest publication can be found on our website under patient resources!
This holiday season,be mindful of your health. Stress and overindulgence may put your body at risk for serious cardiac problems. A study by the Heart Institute states there are 33% more cardiovascular events from ischemic heart disease in December and January than the rest of the year in Los Angeles County. We advocate for our patients to familiarize themselves with the signs of acute coronary syndrome. The quicker symptoms are recognized, the better the outcomes. We encourage you to explore our website for more information about our practice!
