They also provide second opinions for those who wish to receive another viewpoint. If there is a clinical trial available, our providers discuss these opportunities with patients who may be eligible. In addition to seeing patients at their Sixth Street office in Traverse City, many of our cardiologists travel to locations across northern Michigan to serve you.
