Cardiologists treat patients who have risks or symptoms of cardiovascular diseases such as heart failure, heart attacks, angina and heart valve problems. They also treat patients with leg pain and peripheral artery disease, a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs.
