  • Overview

    Screening for depression is simple but can be life changing for a patient with heart disease. The American Heart Association is now recommending that all patients with cardiac issues be screened for depression, stress and anxiety.  Dr. Kim Lebowitz joins host Dr. Lauren Streicher to discuss how doctors can recognize depression in their cardiac patients and what they can do to get them back on a healthy path both mentally and physically.  The two also discuss the role of a cardiac psychologist in heart transplant patients both readying them for surgery and dealing with a new heart following their operation.
