Having completed his medical school training at what is now known as the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, a rotating internship at Doctors Hospital, Internal Medicine training at Akron General Medical Center, he then completed his Invasive Cardiology Fellowship at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

After the tragic death of Josh Miller, a 15-year old football player at Barberton High School, Dr. Gordon, as then president of the Summit County Ohio American Heart Association helped to raise the funds to place automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in every junior and high school. His community became the first county of its size in the nation to do so. For his efforts, the American Heart Association named him the National Physician of the Year 2002.


    Through God’s direction, Terry has continued on his life’s path. In 2005, he was instrumental in procuring from the state of Ohio, $2.5 million. With a partnership with the American Heart Association and Akron General Medical Center, over 2,200 AEDs were placed in schools throughout the state of Ohio. He then convinced the state legislature to allocate an additional $2.5 million needed to complete the task of placing over 4500 devices in Ohio schools. This initiative included the cost of the AED, training five individuals in each school in the use of AEDs and CPR, as well as aligning the schools with their local paramedic units. Over 15,000 individuals received this training. Fifteen lives have been saved as a direct result of this initiative.

    A WARRIOR’S HEART: Conquering Cardiac Disease and Living Abundantly Well


    As a cardiologist, I routinely witness people’s lives, and their families, destroyed by the devastating effects of heart disease. Although our technology allows us to better handle cardiac disease, it offers nothing in regards to prevention or reversal of chronic disease. At Integrative Cardiology, we have stepped up to help all of our practice members learn how to take charge of their health and become independent in their health needs. Join Howard Schwartz, MD a Board certified Cardiovascular Disease specialist, who served as a course reviewer for the Institute for Functional Medicine in vascular biology and mind-body medicine and is a member of the Hospital Staff at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, as he explains the emerging discipline of Integrative Cardiology, and shares his “Heart Wellness and Lifestyle Program” as well as the principles of Cardiovascular, Nutritional, Functional, and Mind-Body Medicine.

    WHERE HAS ALL THE HEALTH CARE GONE?

    in Current Events

    WHERE HAS ALL THE HEALTH CARE GONE?


    Been to the doctor lately? Or was it a physician’s assistant? What about all those annual tests we were told we needed? Had any of those lately?  Been told you’re too old for a PAP test? What is going on in the world of doctors and patients and who makes all these decisions?  And how do these decisions affect women who have been traumatized or abused?


    So many changes, so many questions.  What can we expect in the new world of affordable care?


    If anyone can help us figure it out, it’s Lyle Larson, PhD, PA-C, Chief Physician Assistant, University of Washington Medical Center, and Teaching Associate, Division of Cardiology, Electrophysiology Section.  Lyle teaches, practices, and has worked with and edited several scholarly publications. He writes and lectures in the medical field, working with not only physicians and physicians’ assistants, but also with research and funding.


    With so much of the dialog about health care centering on cost and accessibility, it’s sometimes hard to realize that the day to day visiting of the doctor’s office or the emergency room may be altered by all the changes. Let’s learn more about what we are facing in our medicine-doctor-patient futures.


    Lyle is joining us this Saturday to talk about health concerns and questions we face as we go down a new road to treatment and relationships in the era of health care reform.


    Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to talk about what is new, what we need to know and what we should expect as we go forward to health care’s next face.


    Call-in with your comments to (646) 378-0430.

    Dr Deane Waldman, Author - The Cancer In Healthcare

    in Health

    Author Dr. Deane Waldman did his homework; as University of Chicago’s former head of pediatric cardiology he knows that our healthcare system is sick and in desperate need of a emergancy care.


    According to his book “The Cancer In Healthcare: How Greed Is Killing What We Love,” healthcare itself has become a very sick patient, with the cancer of greed and bureaucracy adversely affecting doctors and patients alike. “Something is very wrong ... and though some blame insurance companies, hospitals or government, there is something far more insidious at work and Americans need to know the truth.” Dr. Waldman is working at the grass roots level to start a larger national dialog to talk about what good patient care should look like and how we can over-hall a top-heavy bureaucratic system to one that allows doctors to give real patient care. In short: he wants to put the ‘care’ back in healthcare.


    “You are no longer a sick patient in need of healthcare. You are now a revenue source for doctor and hospital, a 
    consumer of big pharma products and an expense item for insurance under our current system. Worse of all, you 
    have become a vote-for-sale in Washington says Dr.Waldman.

    Dr. Ino Halegua, The Cardiology Center

    in Business

     
    Dr. Ino Halegua, former Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation at South Miami Hospital and Chief of Medicine at Larkin Hospital, was born in Greece on December 28, 1947. After moving to New York with his family in 1950, he graduated Cum Laude from the medical school at State University of New York Downstate Medical Campus and completed his medical internship and residency in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
    In August 1976, Ino opened his own medical practice here in Miami, and built The Cardiology Center in 1982 to serve the business community’s medical needs. He moved his office within Prime Care of Coral Gables following a 2008 downsize. Ino is particularly focused on preventative medicine and cardiology, and strives to meet the needs of his busy patients by scheduling timely appointments no matter what the exam may be.  Ino most frequently uses the South Miami and Baptist hospitals; he is a member of the Florida Society of Internal Medicine, American Medical Association, American Heart Association of Greater Miami, and the Florida Medical Association.
    Ino is, not surprisingly, highly active within the community as well: not only is he affiliated with both the Miami Beach and Coral Gables Chambers of Commerce, but he also sits on the Hearing Research Institute’s Board of Directors. He sponsors countless charity organizations and events as well, such as Miami Project, Best Buddies, Make-A-Wish, Miami Beach Education Foundation, and more. When he is not busy saving the world from heart ailments, he can be found fishing, golfing, traveling or pursuing real estate projects with his daughter Oren and son Scott.
