COVID-19 (coronavirus) Information for Your Area
The heart specialists at Baptist Health Heart Institute remain committed to taking excellent care of our patients and are concerned about the heart health of Arkansans who might be avoiding treatment due to fear of COVID-19.
Our heart clinics are open, accepting new patients and offering options for care including both telehealth and in-person visits for patients with acute needs. We are in complete agreement with the recommendation from the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association that patients with active cardiac symptoms should not wait until after the pandemic has passed to be evaluated and treated. We are continuing to offer our services in the clinic for high-risk patients, and performing testing and treatment.

About Baptist Health Heart Institute/Arkansas Cardiology-Little Rock
For more than 30 years, Arkansas Cardiology has provided our patients with the most advanced cardiovascular services in the state.
Our Board-Certified cardiologists not only specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease but also pioneered the concept of subspecialization within cardiology here in Arkansas. They have further refined their skills by sub specializing in electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, nuclear cardiology, heart failure, structural heart disease, and peripheral vascular diagnostics and interventions. By sub specializing, Arkansas Cardiology staff provides you with both the breadth and depth of cardiology found only in the most highly sophisticated practices in the country.
In addition, Arkansas Cardiology is committed to giving each patient the same immediacy and quality care that we would give a member of our family. Our physicians are careful to take time to thoroughly explain treatment options and the prescribed course of care. This means we will provide you, the patient, with a close personal physician/patient relationship. Our physicians will know your history not just from your chart, but also through one on one interaction throughout your care.
Arkansas Cardiology is a department of Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock.
