The office is located in the Jefferson City Shopping Center conveniently off of Twin City Hwy. We offer a large array of diagnostic testing, including EKGs, 24-hour Holter monitoring, echocardiograms (ultrasounds of the heart), carotid ultrasounds (ultrasounds of the neck arteries going to the brain), exercise treadmill stress tests, PVRs (vascular studies for upper and lower extremities), as well as nuclear stress tests. One of our four board certified cardiologists will give you the best of care. On this site you can browse the services that we provide in more detail and learn about heart disease and prevention.

Dr. Morbia's philosophy is "Hearts cannot wait." He believes that all patients should be seen as soon as possible, and he does everything in his power to see patients the same day they call for an appointment. In addition, he is available to patients and other physicians at all hours by telephone or through the hospitals. His goal is to be accessible for any questions a patient may have, so they are comfortable in the knowledge that their cardiovascular needs are met.
Real men save their own lives by getting the medical attention they need.
The two most important factors related to health are diet and exercise. For exercise, one can look for activities that he or she enjoys. For instance, one may work with a personal trainer to help accomplish health-related goals or join a group of friends to exercise. Having fun while exercising is just as important as the exercise itself. If you love what you do and who you do it with, you will never work a day in your life. This applies to exercise as well; have fun while working out and one will never grow tired of it.
The other factor, diet, is just as important if not more. One should not think of a diet as a short-term change; it should be a change in lifestyle, and the results will last a life-time. The key is moderation; what one eats is important, but perhaps more important still is the amount one eats. If you would like to know more, read Dr. Morbia's Common Sense Diet.
