coordination with our other cardiologists in order to choose
and perform the appropriate test for each individual patient.
The team oversees imaging with echocardiograms, stress testing,
and transesophageal imaging, as well as CT and MRI imaging. These specialists coordinate care through our clinics as a
team with our specialists in electrophysiology, interventional
cardiology, and structural heart disease, who treat patients with
non-surgical techniques, such as Transcatheter Aortic Valve
Replacement (TAVR), and Mitraclip. These general cardiology clinicians evaluate a wide variety of cardiac patients in our
offices at multiple locations, with treatment of a full range of
cardiovascular disorders.
* Our Congestive Heart Failure Clinic is nationally and
internationally recognized for its innovative, collaborative, and
comprehensive approach to quality outcomes. Our physicians
and nurse practitioners work as a team to provide every patient
with advanced care in a progressive, comfortable, and friendly
environment. With access to the latest innovations in the care
of a failing heart, we develop a tailored plan of care that fits the
specific needs of each patient and his or her loved ones. Our
CHF Clinic's services include comprehensive evaluation and
management of patients with advanced heart failure, transplantation, pulmonary hypertension, adult congenital heart disease,
cardio-oncology, and maternal cardiac care.
* Our Electrophysiology Clinic offers comprehensive services
from diagnosis to treatment for patients with heart rhythm
disorders, including atrial fibrillation and life-threatening
arrhythmias.  Our physicians and nurse practitioners provide
a coordinated, team-based approach to managing care and can

perform advanced treatment therapies, such as atrial fibrillation
ablation. We offer cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) as
a treatment option for our patients with advanced heart failure.
As part of a single-site clinical registry, we have performed MRIs
on all eligible pacemaker and defibrillator patients since 2015.
With over 4,000 active patients, our robust pacemaker services
department is housed within the EP clinic at THG.
* Our Preventive Cardiology and Apheresis Clinic helps
people of all ages lower their risk of cardiovascular disease by
managing risk factors, such as high cholesterol, high blood
pressure, high blood sugars, obesity, and smoking. In addition,
we are one of only a few private practices in the nation to offer
on-site lipid apheresis treatment for patients with extremely
high cholesterol levels who do not respond to or cannot tolerate
cholesterol-lowering drugs. The treatment works by passing the
patient's blood through columns that absorb LDL cholesterol.
Offering this service in our offices provides a comfortable and
relaxed alternative to a hospital setting.
 * O
 ur physician, nurse practitioner, and nursing team
meets with patients one-on-one and also schedules shared
medical appointments, which enable patients to spend more
time with their medical provider. Shared medical appointments
offer all the same services as a regular appointment, with the
added benefit of allowing patients to learn from the questions
and comments of others.
