About
Medical Team
Alegent Creighton Clinic
Alegent Creighton Clinic Cardiology are expert physicians who focus on providing world-class cardiovascular care. Our first concern is our patient’s ability to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.

Our cardiology services include preventive cardiology, sophisticated diagnostic and treatment services and referral, as needed, to specialized cardiologists.

Treatment options include help for lifestyle changes, medicines, and various non-surgical and surgical procedures. General cardiologists work with the cardiovascular sub-specialists (experts who deal with a particular area of the heart) to offer the best treatment options for each person, one heart a time.

Our heart specialists diagnose and manage the full range of heart conditions, ranging from high blood pressure and elevated blood cholesterol to valve replacement. Conditions we treat include:

  • Aortic disease
  • Arrhythmias
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • High cholesterol
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart attack (myocardial infarction)
  • Heart failure
  • Heart murmurs
  • Heart valve diseases
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Mitral valve prolapse

Personalized Care

  • A dedicated staff member answers our office phones from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and can locate staff immediately if you have an emergency.
  • Most emergent and non-emergent situations will be seen the same day.
  • Phone messages will be returned the same day unless the message is left after 4 p.m.
  • Phone calls after hours will be taken by our answering service that will connect you to the on-call physician.

Working With Your Family Physician

We strive to maintain close communication with your family physician. This team-based approach assures that proper and informed decisions are made from diagnosis, through treatment and rehabilitation.

Results for any non-invasive test or procedure ordered by your primary care physician will be faxed to your physician’s office within 24 hours.

National Studies

Our cardiologists participate in many national/international research studies to discover new methods of detection and treatment of heart disease. We use stateof- the-art technology to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, and we stay updated on new programs in prevention.

Office Visits and Appointments

For routine care, please plan ahead to schedule a convenient appointment. We make every effort to see patients at their scheduled time. If you are unable to keep your appointment, we appreciate 24-hour advance notice.

For New Patients

For our new patients, additional time is needed to complete patient registration forms. To save you time, you may obtain these forms in advance. Complete the forms prior to your first appointment and give them to the receptionist when you arrive at the clinic.

Insurance and Billing

Alegent Creighton Clinic accepts most health insurance plans. Please bring your health insurance card and insurance company filing address to your appointment. If your insurance program requires a co-payment, we require payment at the time of check-in.
Your heart specialist is trained to diagnose and treat cardiac problems and will determine if the symptoms you are experiencing are related to heart disease, and will initiate testing. The specialist can also assess your future risk of heart trouble and focus on measures to help prevent vascular problems such as heart attack and stroke.
