The team at VHC Physician Group – Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery comprises of surgeons, physician assistants, clinic administrators, and clinical professionals. The entire team is dedicated to providing high quality and compassionate medical care, and there to guide patients through their appointments, surgeries, and post-surgical care.
Our physician assistant works closely with our surgeons on a daily basis. Under our surgeons’ supervision, the PA manages and coordinates both inpatient and outpatient care. Responsibilities include seeing office and hospital consults, pre-operative teaching, ordering tests and interpreting results, and managing post-operative care.
The Clinic Administrators work directly to schedule surgeries, office consultations, and outpatient diagnostic and preoperative testing.
The CV Clinician functions in a physician-extending role by directing and coordinating the care of the CVT patient using the protocols and standards which have been developed to direct the management of patient care. All clinical activities are performed in collaboration with the CVT surgeon.
