General CardiologyOur expert, board-certified cardiologists provide care for chest pain, heart failure, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other diseases related to the heart.
Structural Heart ClinicAt Wellstar Paulding, our interventional cardiologists evaluate and provide outpatient care close to home for patients with structural heart conditions. We coordinate with Wellstar Kennestone Hospital when treatment procedures are needed.
Cardiac CatheterizationOur interventional cardiologists are specially trained in catheter-based procedures, which offer less-invasive access to the heart through your veins and arteries. Because these procedures eliminate the need for large incisions in the chest, you’ll experience shorter hospital stays, faster recovery and fewer complications. We use cardiac catheterization to treat a range of heart conditions, including heart rhythm disorders and heart attacks.
Cardiac RehabilitationOur complete cardiac rehabilitation program helps you improve your strength, stamina and heart health. More than just an exercise plan, it also features:
- Lifestyle modification and education, including smoking cessation programs, nutritional coaching, weight management and stress management
- Monitored exercise, including flexibility and strength training
- Routine assessments that look at your risk factors, functional abilities and personal goals
Primary Heart Attack CenterWellstar Paulding Medical Center has met and seeks to maintain The Joint Commission’s high standards in providing the next generation of cardiac care.
As a Joint Commission certified Heart Attack Center, our team of dedicated cardiologists and emergency department clinicians work closely with emergency personnel so we are ready to respond to heart attacks quickly, when every minute counts. This accreditation means you can trust our team to provide fast, effective treatment that can help prevent severe damage to your heart.
Device ImplantationWellstar Paulding Hospital specializes in implanting permanent cardiac devices, such as pacemakers to help control your heartbeat and defibrillators to monitor your heart rhythm. We also provide routine follow-up care, which includes:
- Device care. Your electrophysiologist will ensure your device is working properly by adjusting your device settings as needed and checking battery life.
- Therapy. Proper nutrition, healthy lifestyle choices, an exercise routine and medication management all play an important role in your recovery and on-going heart health. After device implantation, we’ll work closely with you to make sure you’re on a path toward healing and improved health.
Cardiac Diagnostics & ImagingHeart care experts at Wellstar Paulding Hospital collaborate in a multidisciplinary fashion to diagnose heart conditions. While some tests may be performed in your doctor’s office, you may be referred for more advanced imaging.
Our cardiac imaging and diagnostics team helps your team of heart care specialists understand what is causing symptoms. We use advanced technology to make and analyze sophisticated images of the heart.
To provide you with the most accurate diagnosis, your doctor may refer you to our specialized cardiac diagnostic center for these types of imaging and tests:
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Stress tests

Cardiovascular Behavioral MedicineOur cardiovascular behavioral medicine team empowers people with heart conditions to achieve their health goals, manage emotions related to their condition and help avoid rehospitalization. Sometimes low mood, panic, overwhelming emotions, difficulties with problem-solving or memory, frustration with making change, and chronic fatigue get in the way of progress. Our heart-focused behavioral health team members use scientifically-supported approaches to help people overcome these barriers. If you have a cardiac condition, have made a good-faith effort at change and are still struggling to achieve health goal success, a referral to one of our clinicians could help.
Our office is in Marietta but we offer virtual appointments depending on your preference and clinical needs.
