      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Sevensma says...

      As a native of Grand Rapids, I am invested in its community health and well-being. I grew up in a medical environment with my Grandfather, Father and Aunt being physicians. They taught me the importance of Health and Wellness in ones life experience. I was blessed to attend Hope College for my undergraduate work and Michigan State University for Medical School, Residency and Fellowship. Metro Heart and Vascular is my current practice, and I am one of its founding members. I feel great pride in the direction that our practice has taken and in the people that have led to its current success. As a cardiovascular medicine specialist, I am passionate about providing personal, high-quality care to my patients, and focus on preventative techniques, minimally invasive procedures, medical therapy and lifestyle modification to prolong and increase quality of life. My staff and I take a holistic approach to cardiovascular care, and provide a wide array of specialized procedures and techniques to optimize patient outcomes. We look forward to being involved in your health.

      Dr. Sevensma's Care Philosophy

      I make sure each interaction with a patient is kind, compassionate and thorough. I value having open communication with my patients, listening to each patient’s needs and working with them to improve their health. I believe in educating patients so they can become an active participant in their own health.

      I am also committed to working with my partners at Metro Heart and Vascular and my patients’ primary care physicians so we can provide a team approach to care.

      Dr. Sevensma says...

      When I diagnose and treat a condition, I look at the patient as a whole and not just as a disease that needs to be cured. The patient is mind, body and spirit – and to be a good physician, one must understand all these aspects and the role they play in a patient’s health. I work with each patient to determine a treatment plan to help them feel better and improve their overall well-being.

      My instructors always said, “You can’t teach someone good hands”, and I was blessed with those hands and the right people to teach me how to use them to help people. I had a lot of exposure to different procedural techniques even before I entered practice, and have had over ten years experience in refining them. As a cardiovascular specialist, I perform a full spectrum of diagnostic and interventional procedures, including echocardiography, nuclear cardiac imaging, noninvasive peripheral vascular diagnostics, cardiac catheterization, peripheral vascular angiography and cardiac device insertion (pacemakers, cardiac defibrillator, internal cardiac monitors and cardiac resynchronization).
