After being employed by Gwinnett Medical Center for the past five years, CardioVascular Group (CVG) is reopening its eight locations as private practices. CVG is making this significant transition seamlessly with its primary emphasis on patient care.
CVG has been providing cardiovascular care to patients for over 30 years throughout Gwinnett and its surrounding counties. CVG will be employing 90 staff members to support its 13 physicians. CVG will continue to provide full cardiac coverage at Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville and Duluth as well as Eastside Medical Center in Snellville.
“We are optimistic about our move back into the world of independent medicine. After reviewing the options available to us, this was clearly the best solution at present. We feel that with our continued commitment towards our patients, referring physicians and value-based medicine, this provides a win-win situation on all counts. We have invested in an innovative, state of the art telephone system and highly integrated electronic medical record system to enable us to focus on patient care, prompt responsiveness and communication at the highest level. Most importantly, we will be perform testing at a significantly lower cost to both patients and insurance companies,” said Dr. Manfred Sandler, the chairman of the group.
The specialized cardiologists at CVG’s reopened locations include: Dr. Lance Friedland, Dr. Sreeni Gangasani, Dr. Joshua Lovelock, Dr. Salil Patel, Dr., Joseph Perez, Dr. Yuri Pride, Dr. E. Edward Proctor, Dr. Philip Romm, Dr. Martin Siegfried, Dr. Manfred Sandler, Dr. Searle Videlefsky, Dr. David Wilson, and Dr. Markus Porkert.
