They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins.

I had a major heart attack while in Florida on a business trip. The ambulance brought me to Boca Raton Regional Hospital and assigned Dr. Cartlidge to perform quadruple bypass surgery. I consider myself to be fortunate as the surgeon I saw in NYC said Dr. Cartlidge did an excellent job leaving me with minimal scarring and my recovery has been progressing rapidly.
