Same Day Cardiovascular Care

During the same-day visit, our team of heart and vascular specialists can review your individual health history, perform a physical exam, order any necessary follow-up diagnostic testing, and establish, if needed, a treatment plan. Need a cardiologist? This is a great way to initiate a new relationship with a cardiologist. 

“Same-day visits allow our team of heart experts to respond faster than other cardiologists in the area. Rapidly assessing your concerns helps you get back to the things you enjoy,” says Willis Godin, DO, cardiologist with UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute at UPMC Lititz.
