Heart disease and stroke are the number one causes of death and disability worldwide.
Cardiovascular disease is a silent illness that starts in early adulthood and progresses for decades, gradually taking away our freedoms, independence, and, eventually, our lives.
Heart disease is not a disease of the elderly
Heart disease can start in our 20’s and gradually diminish the various and miraculous functions of our blood vessels, ultimately leading to heart attack, stroke, frailty and dependence on others. What we think of as a disease of the elderly is really the end product of a decades-long disease process.
There are many ways to decrease risk
We now have a large arsenal of tools, from lifestyle changes and natural supplements to pharmaceuticals, to help prevent damage to our blood vessels and, in some cases, reverse the harm that has been done.
Heart disease can be prevented
One of the greatest challenges in preventing heart disease and and protecting our independence is detecting who is at risk. Fortunately, we have a variety of techniques to determine the presence of disease and its progression.

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our patients say:
Very impressed. I’ve never had a doctor visit where I’ve been asked so many questions and was able to truly explain my medical history and my health goals. It was honestly refreshing.
Santa Barbara, CA
Dr. Winiarski is the best doctor! He is VERY in-tune to how the entire body works and what the latest science is for treatments. I have been going to him for years and can honestly say no doctor has his level of attention to detail and insight into treatment options.
I would ONLY recommend this doctor for people looking for nice, friendly, intelligent and caring doctor.
Dr Winiarski, was thoughtful, knowledgeable and deliberate in his delivery of information. I came to him after a cardiologist told me.. that I would have a heart attack in 10 years – 95%. Steven helped me understand its true meaning based on all factors. I told him that the cardiologist used some computer tool, Steven sent me a picture of the tool, then explained it very differently. God Bless You, Dr Winiarski.
San Diego, CA
Awesome doctor. He is quite possibly the best doctor I have seen. He actually listens to you and tries to help. Wonderful bedside manner as well as personality.
San Francisco, CA
I haven’t had a doctor listen to me that well in a long time (or really ever). That really stood out to me along with his breadth of knowledge with my issues and his desire to help with nutritional guidance as well. I would highly recommend him and already have to family friends.
Young, smart doctor. I really liked him. I saw him yesterday and I thought he took his time (more than 45 minutes), really understood the issue, and gave me the best possible advice. He is personable, knowledgable, no bs, ethical guy.
San Francisco, CA
Dr. Winiarski took the time to listen to me and provided me with information and goals that complimented and added to the plan I had been prescribed by my endocrinologist. I feel that I am in good hands.
