“Heart disease claims more than 650,000 lives annually in the United States. Symptoms that may indicate a problem with your heart include chest pain, shortness of breath, jaw pain, and left arm pain. If you develop symptoms such as these please talk to your doctor. If you develop sudden symptoms that will not resolve, you should promptly be evaluated in the nearest emergency department.
At MMG Bluefield Cardiology Clinic and Princeton Community Hospital, we are dedicated to improving the cardiovascular health of our community. In the last two years we have introduced interventional cardiology services including angioplasty and stenting for elective treatment and treatment of non-emergent heart attacks. Substantial investment is also being made in a state-of-the-art cardiac cath lab at PCH which will allow us to treat patients with emergent heart attacks.
Our goal is to provide excellent routine and emergent cardiac services in our community without the need for patients to leave home.”
– Dr. Stephen Ward, Interventional Cardiologist, MMG Bluefield Cardiology Clinic
