Doctor answers your questions about heart health


CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – February is Heart Health Month and 22News is Working For You with ways to keep your heart healthy.

For February 22News focuses on women’s heart health

Dr. Jay Burton of Springfield Medical Associates told 22News about new research that shows a link between heart disease and women who’ve undergone chemotherapy for breast cancer.

He said there are some important questions breast cancer patients need to ask their doctors.

Eating healthier and exercising can result in significant heart health improvements

“They should know the types of medications that were used and also the radiation that was used and they should ask what types of follow up testing should be done down the line in terms of echocardiograms, stress tests,” Dr. Burton told 22News.
