The Division of Cardiology at Michigan State University offers outpatient services at the Clinical Center. We are committed to providing you with compassionate, patient-centered health care. All of our Cardiologists are board eligible or board certified in Internal Medicine as well as the subspecialty of Cardiology.

Our inpatient services are provided at both Sparrow Health Systems and Ingham Regional Medical Center. We are able to provide cardiac catheterization, cardiac intervention, pacemaker implantation, transesophageal echocardiography, cardioversions and consultations.
What are Cardiology Fellows?
Cardiology Fellows are board certified physicians in Internal Medicine that have chosen to continue their education in the specialty of cardiology. Our nationally accredited training program accepts three physicians each year into our three year program. We have a total of nine cardiology fellows in various stages of their training. The fellows are involved in your care whether at our outpatient clinic site or in the hospital.
How do I make an appointment?
Your primary care physician may refer you by calling or faxing a request to our office. Additionally, you may request an appointment with one of our physicians by calling directly. All cardiac testing requires a physician referral.
What to expect from your appointment?
If you are new to our practice, prior to your appointment with us, you will be sent forms for completion. We ask that you bring these completed forms with you to your appointment; as this will assist us in serving you better.
All patients should bring their picture identification, insurance cards and copay with them for each appointment. You will be asked to complete a short health survey update each time you visit our clinic to assist our physicians in updating your records. The physician will review this with you during your visit as well as addressing your issues and concerns. During your visit with us you may expect to have contact with several individuals including our reception and check out staff, our health care assistant, a cardiology fellow, the attending physician (the cardiologist). You may also see one of our cardiovascular technologists or nurses. Every effort will be made to provide you with the most comprehensive as well as time efficient appointment as possible.
Telephone and Office Hours
Our clinic is open and telephones are on Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon and again from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Anytime you call our office you will be connected with a “live” person (no phone tree) who is happy to take your call and assist you as necessary. In the event you are calling with a message requiring physician or nurse assistance, our receptionists will take a message for you and route it accordingly. Please note that many reports or results take on average 72 hours before they are final and provided to us. Please do not call regarding results until at least three days after the testing has been completed. Also, if a test has been requested by your primary care physician, you will need to contact that physician for the results.
