PATIENT EDUCATION

Our physicians and nurses regularly make available educational materials designed to provide important health care information and address patient questions concerning their cardiac care. The following is a list of educational materials available through our practice. Please call the office and ask to speak to one of our trained nursing staff to request educational materials, (201) 664-0201.
