On Tuesday November 7th Weiser Senior Center was visited by 2 new Medical Providers who will be providing Cardiology Services to our community.
Dr. Box and Dr. Undesser are affiliates of the West Valley Medical Group in Caldwell. These providers saw a need in our area for specialized cardiology care and offered their services to help.
Both doctors practice general cardiology and will be able to help in the treatment for high blood pressure, cholesterol and Hypertension to name a few. However, these experienced doctors will also be able to provide additional services.
Dr. Box specializes in Interventional cardiology which he will be able to diagnosis and treat in such procedures as: an angioplasty, valve repair and valve replacements among other procedures.
