The most important thing to me when I see a patient is finding ways in which I can empower that patient, not to be a patient.

My Philosophy on patient care is that the doctor patient relationship is very important, and all decisions are shared.

Hearts Can't Wait

Hearts can’t wait. In matters of the heart, we wait for the right person, wait for the right time, and the right place. But when it comes to heart health, your heart can’t wait. Pardee’s Heart and Vascular team can see new patients within a few days instead of waiting weeks or months. We offer innovative and advanced technology that is on the leading edge of care to make your experience with us result in a better outcome for you and your family. We believe in prevention first and encourage you to live an active and heart healthy life in order to never become a patient. But, should you ever need it, take comfort in knowing that Pardee Cardiology Associates is committed to giving you the best care as quickly as possible. Because in matters of the heart, time is of the essence.

Right Person

At Pardee we believe in being a patient centric hospital. We believe that between the doctor and patient, all decisions should be shared. We believe in prevention first and treating the patient as a whole, unique, and important individual. In more ways than one, health begins with the heart. A healthy heart is a healthy body. We want to be able to carry our community through every stage of heart health beginning with education all the way through to diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. No matter where you are in your journey, we’re here to guide you through each step of the way. 

Right Time

We are committed to seeing each and every patient within 48 hours of first contact. Our goal at Pardee is to meet you where you are when you have a need. Dr. Eduardo Balcells and the entire cardiology team are very excited to add Dr. Martin Sullivan to Pardee Cardiology Associates. His presence will help us to make sure that we can grow and adapt with our communities ever changing needs. In an industry where it is common practice to have to wait weeks or even months for an appointment, we strive to innovate and excel beyond our competition to better meet the needs of our patients. Waiting for an appointment puts stress not only on the patient but their family as well. Time is critical when it comes to your heart and Pardee is ready to respond to your needs swiftly.

Right Place

Pardee knows that care begins first with great providers, but often the difference between good care and outstanding care is the equipment and resources the physicians have at their disposal to provide care for the patient. At Pardee this starts with our heart specific catheterization lab. At this lab we have the industry leading technology and the experienced team to provide outstanding care. This allows our physicians to reduce your risk and discomfort while also shortening your stay and recovery time so that you can get back to doing the things you love to do, because whether it is pre or post treatment, hearts can’t wait.
