This content was provided by Dr. Cha "Cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeons at Mayo Clinic are part of an integrated, multidisciplinary team of doctors and health care professionals who provide individualized care for each patient. Having all this expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — your care is discussed among the team, your test results are available quickly and appointments are scheduled in coordination.
