Cardiology

Our facilities are fully accredited in nuclear and cardiac imaging to help identify heart disease and disorders, assess heart function, and pinpoint the location of a heart attack.

Our onsite testing centers and pacemaker/defibrillator clinics ensure more seamless care when you need it. And to better serve our patients, we offer lipid screenings and Coumadin checks with follow-up so there are no extra trips to the hospital or outpatient clinics. Our cardiologists believe in the one-on-one patient approach to your cardiac care. This means we will provide you with a close physician-patient relationship. Our doctors will know your history not just from your chart, but also through personal interaction throughout your care.
