Garland G. Green, MD
Interventional Cardiology Care
"Many patients don't understand how the decisions that they make each day can adversely impact their health. So an important part of my job is to empower those patients and show them that they have a great ability to positively influence their health by making better lifestyle choices. Compassion is what governs my decisions as a cardiologist... and my dedication as a fellow human being."
A passion for helping people
"I have always had an affinity for biological sciences and a great desire to make a positive contribution in people's lives. I became a doctor because medicine encourages both. And as a cardiologist, I have the opportunity to greatly impact my patients' lives for the better. I feel fulfilled when I am able to make just one patient feel better each day."
