If you are considering planning a visit with the cardiovascular team at North Ohio Heart's Norwalk office, you will want to learn what makes this group the right choice to care for you and your heart health. Maybe you have recently been referred by your primary physician, are relocating from another area or begun to experience symptoms, such as chest pains, shortness of breath or heart palpitations. Whatever the case, you will need to learn more about this local group of experienced cardiologists. The doctors of North Ohio Heart are here to help you understand what makes this group different from other cardiology groups in the area.
What Sets North Ohio Heart Apart?
- Subspecialties: “I think the most particular feature of our practice is that we have people with very specific skills that are rarely available in smaller communities,” says Mourhaf Traboulssi, MD, of North Ohio Heart's Norwalk office. “We have people with interventional skills; we have people who can put in pacemakers, people who are well trained in nuclear cardiology, and more. We have big medicine delivered in a very compassionate way in a small town setting, without the need to travel anywhere.”
- Electronic records: Your entire record with North Ohio Heart is electronic; this makes information available to doctors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even if you received care from another doctor in another hospital, those records will be in North Ohio Heart’s system.
- Experience: North Ohio Heart has been in the Sandusky and Norwalk areas for more than 15 years. Because of this, the cardiologists have a good relationship with local physicians, referring physicians and patients.
- Availability: Patients are able to be seen by a doctor at any time for any reason because of the group’s team approach to heart health. No matter what your heart issue, there is a cardiologist available to care for you.
Now that you know why North Ohio Heart is the place for you, you’ll need to make an appointment and plan your visit. If you have been seeing a different cardiologist in another area, simply mention this when scheduling your appointment and the staff will be able to obtain records from your prior physician. If you have not had cardiovascular care in the past, just call in and explain any symptoms you are concerned about.
When you are planning your first visit, make sure to bring your list of medications and the actual bottles, as well as a full medical and family history, if possible. The physicians of North Ohio Heart use this information to develop a full understanding of your heart health.
