Asian Heart and Vascular Center

Request appointment
(415) 885-3678

The UCSF Asian Heart and Vascular Center is a cardiovascular care hub for the Asian community, the fastest-growing population in San Francisco. We respect the cultural differences that exist in the Asian community. Patients receive language-appropriate information and educational materials about heart disease and how to prevent it. The center also participates in research to better understand the metabolic and genetic differences of the Asian community.

Cardiovascular disease and stroke are the leading causes of death for Asian Americans, according to the American Heart Association. In San Francisco, Asian Americans make up about a third of the population. As the Asian population grows, so does the need for cardiovascular specialists who can understand, communicate about and treat heart disease.
