St. Vincent Health offers cardiac care by board-certified cardiologist Dr. Nelson Prager from Vail Health.
Dr. Prager offers patient appointments at St. Vincent Health in Leadville two days each month, and also performs interventional surgeries such as catheterizations and pacemakers in our new state-of-the-art hospital.
Cardiac patients range from healthy adults seeking preventative cardiac care to those with significant cardiac illnesses. Dr. Prager treats cardiac disease with a comprehensive approach that begins with diagnostics and assessments and can include treatments such as blood thinners, electrophysiology (which includes the advanced care for arrhythmias and the use of pacemakers and defibrillators) and/or rehabilitative measures.
While no referral is necessary to book a cardiovascular appointment, patients are encouraged to contact their insurance company to determine whether a referral is required for optimal insurance coverage.
Appointments are available in Leadville for new and existing patients. Call 719-486-0230 for information or to schedule an appointment.
