FHV Health Urgent Care now includes a cardiologist.

So, set your mind—and your heart—at ease. You never know when you may need a heart specialist. But now you’ll always know where to find one.

Why does an Urgent Care need a heart specialist?

When we get the opportunity to add the extra layer of our superior heart expertise to improve the overall health outlook of our patients, we do it.

Now every FHV Health Urgent Care Center provides better health and even greater peace of mind because it is staffed with the extra support of a Board Certified Cardiologist. That’s right; urgent care with an emphasis on cardiac care in one place. No other urgent care offers it. No other urgent care has the resources or the expertise to match. Your heart couldn’t be in better hands.

Patients experiencing chest pains or shortness of breath drive past typical Urgent Care centers because they are not equipped to handle such conditions. Many of these patients can now be treated at our Urgent Care facility with medical professionals specifically trained to treat acute cardiac symptoms.

How does a heart specialist at an Urgent Care help you?

Our highly-trained and acclaimed Cardiologists maintain regular, carefully scheduled rotations between Centers to provide the optimum coverage for our patients. Unfortunately, heart “urgencies” do not recognize schedules or calendars and care very little for your convenience. So, on those rare occasions when a cardiac specialist may be needed and one is not able to be on site physically, we have technology for them to virtually visit with you to quickly diagnose and provide treatment as well as provide peace of mind.

In many instances, time is very much of the essence. It is not a time for waiting or wasting critical minutes. Urgency requires immediacy, expediency, and accuracy. It is the best way we know to maintain the very highest standard of critical healthcare for our patients. It’s also how we know your heart is in exactly the right place at FHV Health.
