First Impressions Count

First impressions count a lot and as the saying goes, “there is no second chance to make a good first impression.”

For Tri-County Heart Institute patient David Burtless, it was fate that brought him to his new cardiologist… a referral from another doctor. He shared with us what that first impression meant to him.

Also, you can join Dr. Alvarez every second Saturday of the month for Walk With a Doc. Participants will enjoy a brief presentation on an important health topic followed by a “walk-at-your-own-pace” lead by Dr. Alvarez.

Singing Praises

Going to the doctor can cause a variety of reactions in people. Some people develop such anxiety it actually causes their blood pressure to go up, sometimes known as White Coat Syndrome.

But we spoke to one Tri-County Heart Institute patient who actually enjoys going to his doctor, so much so that he broke out into song about it.

Also, Dr. Nitza Alvarez, cardiologist at the Tri-County Heart Institute, is committed to helping her patients incorporate physical exercise into their routines. That is why she participates in the Walk With The Doc program.
