Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Felker My specialty is heart failure especially advanced heart failure. Were one of the largest heart transplant and mechanical support device programs in the world. We have vast experience both in terms of medicine and surgery and all the things that go along with it. We have a level of expertise across the board so youre not just going to get pigeon-holed into one treatment that we happen to be good at. We have the ability to identify what treatment or treatments are best for you then target each individual therapy for each individual patient. Many of the patients who come to see us have already seen other cardiologists and many have been told theres nothing more anybody can do. We try to take a fresh look at each person and we almost always find that theres something we can do to help maybe something simple like adjusting medications or maybe a new device or adjustment of an existing device or something more dramatic like a heart transplant or mechanical heart device.
