Cardiovascular disease can be complex. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of advanced diagnostic imaging, monitoring, stress tests, and more, with staff trained in the latest imaging technologies.

One of the best.

Dr. Kevin Hayes is very courteous, has excellent bedside manner. Takes the time to listen to the patient. He genuinely cares for his patients and wants to improve their overall health. He is probably one of the best cardiologists I have ever received medical care from.


The best cardiologist you will ever have, know, or need.

Beyond capable, caring, professional, [and] thorough; the best cardiologist you will ever have, know, or need. Trust him. I would by far recommend Dr. V to anyone, anywhere, anytime. I’m so thankful he saved my life in the hospital, along with the other doctors and staff. And I’ve continued to trust in him; remarkable man. Thank you, Dr. V.

He was wonderful and made me feel great...

Dr. Jones did my most recent heart catheterization. Unexplained chest pain, rule out cardiac issue, 3 stents placed Dec . 6th 2018. He told me I am doing so well that I’ve literally reversed some of my blockage; with great doctors and medication, healthy eating [and] exercise. He was wonderful and made me feel great about my efforts to change to healthy living.

Gail Martin is the best.

I love the staff here, and my doctor, Gail Martin, is the best. She pays attention to every little detail, and I have referred people to her and will continue to do so. My husband of 48 years is a patient [of] hers, too.

Dr. Grech is professional and really cares for his patients and their health.

I am very pleased to have Dr. Grech as my cardiologist. I looked for a cardiologist to help with all my heart and vascular problems and not one other than Dr Grech and his staff has treated my condition and made me feel as a family. Dr. Grech is professional and really cares for his patients and their health. Thanks Dr. Grech for being a kind and caring physician.
