After being in operation 29 years in Chandler, East Valley Cardiology opened a second office in Maricopa March 18. The office is open Monday-Thursday at 20924 N. John Wayne Parkway, Suite D4-B.

“This is going to be a tremendous community,” Dr. James Ganem said. “We are so excited about providing high-quality health care and high-quality services. We’ve been taking care of you guys for a long time, and we’re just happy to do it here.”

Ganem said to start, the office will have one provider and operate four days a week. But the office has space for a second provider.

Ganem credited office manager Linda Burdick with readying the new office space, which includes four exam rooms, space for vein and vascular studies, echocardiograms and a treadmill. She has worked with him since 1990.

“One of the things we’re offering is full testing, and I think that’s important,” Ganem said. “Most of the offices down here, you come, you see the doctor, but you’ve got to go to Chandler or Phoenix to get your testing.”

The doctors would also like to see a hospital come to the area. EVC is involved in both Banner and Dignity networks.

“We’d like to provide some in-patient care and testing,” Dr. Robert Hanson said. “We can’t do nuclear stress out here. You need a nuclear room with lead walls. But we’ve got everything else.”
