"The team I trusted for heart care"

"Back in 1997, I had heart problems and went to another hospital out of town. I went for nine years, and they told me that there was nothing that they could do for me but medications. I finally said, 'why don't we just go to Martinsville?'

Dr. Benjamin Lee at Southern Virginia Cardiovascular Consultants (SVCC) had put in my husband's pacemaker, and we had been very pleased with his care. I asked my family doctor if I could start seeing someone locally at SVCC.

They put in a defibrillator, and now I'm seeing Dr. Banerjee and Dr. Khan. Their staff is wonderful. I've been a patient at Southern Virginia Cardiovascular Consultants for about four years now. 

I like that they are up front. They tell you what they can do for you and there are no surprises. There's no need to drive and waste time when you've got the best right here in Martinsville."

Alice appreciates the deep concern that Dr. Khan seems to have for her as a patient and likes how they encourage her to be knowledgeable and self-sufficient about her care. 

"They teach you how to eat and how to take care of yourself."

She also appreciates the patient and attentive staff, who help with appointments, medications and anything you may need as a patient. 

"They are friendly, caring girls, and I just love them all."

Both Alice and her husband are very pleased with the heart care they continue to receive at Southern Virginia Cardiovascular Consultants and Sovah Health - Martinsville (formerly Memorial Hospital). 

"I'd rather be in Martinsville than anywhere else."
