Dear Patient:


We are delighted to share with you news about growth at EvergreenHealth Heart and Vascular Care that will ensure you have access to the full continuum of cardiology services when you are in our care.


To continue to provide cardiac electrophysiology consultation at our clinic, we have expanded our strategic relationship with the cardiology practice at Virginia Mason Medical Center.  Beginning September 9, 2013,  Robert Rho of Virginia Mason’s Heart Institute has been at our clinic two days a week.   


Dr. Rho is well known throughout this region as an outstanding specialist in diagnostic cardiology, cardiac electrophysiology, rhythm management, and pacemaker implantation.  He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine with a subspecialty in cardiovascular disease and holds a certificate of added qualification in clinical cardiac electrophysiology.   


While Dr. Rho is the latest addition to our team, we would like to introduce Dr. Lena Aveadissian, who will be joining our service in January, 2014.  She will be coming to us from Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington, where she has been on staff since 2010.   Dr. Avedissian trained at Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetss and completed her internship and residency programs at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C. 


With those introductions, our clinic now includes 9 cardiologists;  Lena Avedissian, MD, Bill Getchell, MD, Ed Kim, MD, Rubin Maidan, MD, Chris Price, MD, Jim Schneider, MD, Mark Vossler, MD, Cynthia Warner, MD and Rachael Wyman, MD, 7 mid-level providers and 4 Virginia Mason colleagues;  Robert Rho MD,  Susie Woo, MD; 2 cardio-thoracic surgeons, Mark Hill, MD and Gautam Velamoor, MD.
