Our Team

The Heart and Vascular Center at Emory Healthcare is renowned for its clinical expertise, academic excellence and innovation in treating cardiovascular disease. Our board-certified physicians are highly skilled and experienced clinicians who specialize in the prevention, early detection and treatment of all forms of heart disease. Our multidisciplinary team includes cardiologists, surgeons, radiologists, researchers, nurses and advanced practice providers, as well as various other healthcare providers who work together to offer comprehensive medical care.

Meet Our Advanced Practice Providers 

Advanced Practice Providers (APPs), which include physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs), work in collaboration with your physicians to form small “care teams” that manage care for a particular group of patients. This team-based approach allows you to be seen more quickly, as there are more providers available to care for you.

The Advanced Practice Provider Can See You Now

Following completion of their Bachelors’ degree, PAs are required to complete a two to three-year accredited PA program and clinical rotations. An NP is a registered nurse with a Masters or Doctorate of Nursing degree who has completed rigorous clinical training in a medical Specialty.

  • Certified, State-licensed Medical Professionals
  • Extensive Education and Training

Faster Access to Care

APPs provide many of the same services as your cardiologist, but their flexible schedules typically offer faster access to care, as well as: 

  • Faster Routine Tests and Results 
  • Swift Management of Chronic Conditions 
  • Quickly Schedule Follow-up Visits 

PAs and NPs do not have to replace your doctor, but if your doctor is not available, an APP may be ready and able to provide peace of mind.

Advanced Practice Provider Qualifications 

Emory’s licensed and proficient PAs and NPs collaborate closely with your cardiologist and are qualified to:

  • Diagnose and Treat Cardiovascular Conditions; Perform Risk Assessments
  • Prescribe Medications and Therapies
  • Order Diagnostic Tests and Review Results
  • Manage Chronic Cardiac-related Illnesses
  • Educate and Coach
