VVMC's patients range from healthy adults seeking preventative cardiac care to those with significant cardiac illnesses. Our board certified cardiologist, Dr. Robert Orr treats cardiac disease with a comprehensive approach that begins with diagnostics and assessments and can include treatments such as blood thinners, electrophysiology (which includes the advanced care for arrhythmias and the use of pacemakers and defibrillators) and/or rehabilitative measures. Complementary care is provided through cooperative arrangements with interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons regionally and throughout the United States.
Dr. Orr sees patients in Vail and Eagle. He also schedules appointments in Frisco every Wednesday. While no referral is necessary to book an appointment, patients are encouraged to contact their insurance company to determine whether a referral is required for optimal insurance coverage.
