When you think you might have a heart condition, you want care from the top specialists in the region. However, when you have to travel a long distance for testing or a routine appointment, it can be cumbersome.
Saint Francis Medical Center offers convenient cardiac outreach clinics in:
- Poplar Bluff
At each of these clinics, cardiologists from Cape Cardiology Group regularly see patients. If you need specialty tests such as a computed tomography (CT) scan or an echocardiogram, you can receive them at your local hospitals and clinics.
“Saint Francis’ Heart Hospital is affiliated with Cleveland Clinic’s Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart and Vascular Institute,” says Joseph C. Dwyer, MD, FACC, cardiologist at Saint Francis. “That means we have access to Cleveland Clinic’s top-level research and protocols. Through these outreach clinics, patients across Southeast Missouri can benefit from this knowledge without having to leave their communities.”
“Heart problems can be frightening for both the patient and his or her family,” continues Dwyer. “People throughout the region know they can trust the specialists at Saint Francis, and they appreciate having access to such an excellent option in heart care.”
