Dr. Earl J Hope has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

i have been a patient of dr. hope for about 10 years. my first meeting with him was at the reading hospital where i had a scope(i don't recall the name of it) to search for blockage. the results of the procedure showed i had blockage of 90% or greater, in five places. i was upset, as i knew what was coming next. he explained what. he sat with me and explained the procedure and what to expect. he sat with me and answered my questions and didn't leave until i was through. i had a great surgeon in dr. fiester. i have been seeing dr. hope for my regular appointments. one one occasion i actually left the building at the scheduled tine of my appointment. it seems he had a cancellation and i was there early, so i got in s soon as i entered the office. at no time have i had to wait more than five minutes past my appointment time to see the doctor. i credit the people who schedule the appointments as well as the doctor and nurses.
