Cardiology Consultants is committed to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular diseases. Established in 1979 by Dr. Bolen (retired) and Dr. Boswell, and later joined in the practice by Dr. Rothbard, Dr. Vandenberg, & Dr. Norton our physicians together have more than 100 years experience.
The practice’s first office at 2320 N. Orange Avenue in Orlando is still our main location after 30 years, and has its own state-of-the-art catheterization laboratory. Our Lake county satellite office was opened in 1993, and the Highlands county office in 1994. The offices employ approximately 40 persons, including 6 nurses, 3 nuclear technicians and 3 cath lab technicians.
WE BELIEVE OUR PRACTICE IS DIFFERENT FROM MANY OTHERS BECAUSE:
- Established patients or new patients are always seen immediately/same day if needed.
- Patients are always seen by the physician, not a nurse-practitioner or physician assistant.
- Each physician, has a dedicated 24/7 cardiac nurse. After-hour office calls are answered by his nurse.
- All tests and laboratory results are not only forwarded to the patient’s primary care physician, but also called to the patient by the cardiologist or his dedicated nurse within a few days.
- Our office telephones are answered by a knowledgeable, empowered receptionist, not an automated answering service.
- By seeing patients immediately in all offices, by having our nurses available by telephone immediately, and by emphasizing proven preventative measures, we strongly try to avoid unnecessary, time consuming emergency rooms visits and unnecessary hospitalizations.
- We recommend carefully evaluated specialty referral physicians and usually personally contact such specialists, facilitating prompt referral appointments. We also have strong referral contacts at Emory, Duke, Vanderbilt and Johns Hopkins for academic center referrals.
