Ministry Our Lady of Victory in Stanley is pleased to welcome Abdou Elhendy, MD, PhD, FACC, FAHA, a Marshfield Clinic non-invasive cardiologist, who will be providing monthly outreach services starting February 15.
“It’s fitting that Dr. Elhendy will be joining us during heart month, when we focus on heart disease as the number one cause of death in the nation,” said Cynthia Eichman, hospital president. “The specialty services of Dr. Elhendy will enhance those that we already offer at Ministry Our Lady of Victory, such as echocardiography and cardiac stress testing “If additional specialty care is required, patients can seamlessly be referred to the Marshfield Clinic and the Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care heart care team in Marshfield, with no delays in diagnosis or treatment.”
Dr. Elhendy, who first joined Marshfield Clinic in 2006, specializes in diagnosis and management of coronary artery and valvular heart disease, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, cardiac stress testing and risk stratification.
Dr. Elhendy attended medical school and did his residency in cardiovascular disease at Cairo University in Egypt. He did his residency in internal medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, and a Fellowship in echocardiography at Mayo Clinic-Mayo School of Health Sciences in Rochester, Minn. He has an advanced degree from Erasmus University in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
“We are pleased that we can now offer this additional service locally, to better meet our patients’ needs,” said Eichman. “By joining the Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care heart care team, we know patients have access to the most extensive roster of specialists in the region, who are involved in more clinical research than any other area provider.”
Dr. Elhendy will initially see patients from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the third Tuesday of every month, with the ability for additional days in the future. He will be based at Ministry Our Lady of Victory Hospital. For appointments, call (715) 387-5301 or (800) 888-4755.
