James River Cardiology Coming to Lawrenceville, VA

The team at James River Cardiology has been providing quality cardiovascular care using the latest in diagnostic and treatment options for more than 10 years and are now opening a location across from the courthouse in Lawrenceville, VA.

From their website:

We treat each patient with the highest level of care and respect. Together with a dedicated support staff, we work with each patient and each patient’s referring physician to properly diagnose disorders of the heart.

Our approach includes listening to our patients describe their symptoms, consulting with their primary care physicians, and using a variety of diagnostic tools and techniques.

Then we determine the most prudent and effective treatment program.
