Cardiovascular Institute

Cardiovascular Institute at Southwest Health Systems

“We take care of people, not patients. You have somebody’s grandfather who now can take his grandson on a tractor ride around the farm. You have a pastor who can go back to church and give his Sunday sermon without chest pains every five minutes.”

Dr. Ali Homayuni, Cardiologist
