The Cardiology Clinic delivers patient-centered care to adults.
The Cardiology Clinic staff provides medical care, cardiovascular risk stratification, and diagnostic services to patients referred to and followed by Clinic providers. A range of cardiovascular services are offered to include electrocardiography (ECGs or EKGs), ambulatory electrocardiography, echocardiography, cardioversion, and stress testing. In addition the staff oversee and direct referrals for nuclear medicine testing, heart catheterizations, and electrophysiology procedures. Providers include board certified cardiologists, cardiology focused nurse practitioners, and clinical pharmacists. As a medical education institution, patients may be seen by those training to become physician assistants. Cardiovascular testing may be performed by technicians, nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, and registered nurses with oversight by credentialed providers.

Commonly asked Questions and Answers
• Will I be seen by a Cardiologist? All services are supervised by a board certified cardiologist, but new referrals and follow-up visits may be directly managed by either a nurse practitioner or cardiologist.
• Will I get the results of my study(s) at that time of my visit? You may not, but they should be readily available for your referring provider to review.

Other information important or critical for patients to know:
• This is an Outpatient Clinic. After hours, weekends, holidays, please report to the Emergency Room with cardiovascular concerns
• If suffering from acute chest pain, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, or a racing heart please call 911 and do not drive yourself or be driven in a Personally Owned Vehicle (POV) to the nearest Emergency Room
We do not currently offer routine device management (pacemakers or defibrillators). We would be happy to refer you to a local electrophysiologist for routine follow-up.
