Dr. Ades’ expertise is in cardiac rehabilitation, stress testing, hyperlipidemia, ischemic heart disease and preventive cardiology. He has devoted his career to researching the value of exercise for the treatment and prevention of heart disease and has developed exercise protocols that improve clinical outcomes in older women and overweight patients with heart disease.
