Veritas Cardiovascular opened on June 12th, 2014.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for the residents of this community, while working collaboratively with their physicians. We understand patients are experiencing delays in scheduling appointments with cardiologists in this area. We endeavor to offer an alternative where that will no longer be the case.
Dr. John R. Hicks is a board-certified cardiologist and has been practicing in South Carolina for over 20 years. He worked as an interventional cardiologist at Providence Hospital in Columbia for 20 years, where he was Chief of Cardiology from 2006-2009.
Veritas' delivery model is divergent from most larger cardiovascular groups. Being smaller, we are able to restore a personal touch that has become nearly obsolete. And it starts when a telephone call to our office renders a familiar and welcoming voice, as opposed to a menu of recorded options. Patients who enter are cordially greeted and seen quickly. In addition, the care they receive is state-of-the-art and delivered in a compassionate atmosphere.
We are thrilled to be accepting new patients daily. If you need to see our doctor you can today. Referrals will be handled with urgency. Referring physicians receive a dictated, non EMR created, comprehensive note the day after a patient is seen.
Though we focus on outpatient cardiology, we perform on-demand echos, stress echos, lower extremity venous studies for DVT, carotid ultrasound, AAA scans, as well as place holters and event monitors for those with suspected heart rhythm diseases. Referrals are welcome and performed immediately. Dr. Hicks is also an expert in managing pacemakers and defibrillators.
As office administrator here, I am so very proud of this clinic and our staff. Come see for yourselves the many things that makes us truly different.
