MEET OUR MHG PHYSICIAN EXTENDERS, AN EXTENSION OF YOUR HEART CARE TEAM! THIS MONTH WE RECOGNIZE MICHELLE FORCINA

Beaumont Michigan Heart Group would like to introduce you to our physician extenders.  They are a critical part of the Cardiology team at Michigan Heart Group.  The Physician Extenders work hand and hand with the physicians, making decisions on the best treatment options for each patient on a case by case basis.  All of our extenders round on the weekends as well as work in the hospital during the week.  Most of our extenders also have office hours and we encourage our patients to feel comfortable following up with them in the office.  Our medical decisions are often a team approach that each extender is a part of and they are often at the forefront of each decision that is made.

The practice is made up of Interventionist (plumbers) and Electrophysiologist (electricians).  The plumbers are located at 4600 Investment Drive, #200, while the Electricians are in the building next door at 4550 Investment Dr., #250.  In addition Michigan Heart Group has two satellite offices to accommodate our out of town patients.  One in Macomb at 15959 Hall Road, #304, Macomb and another in Novi at Ten Mile and Haggerty, 39500 Ten Mile, #103, Novi. Each extender is trained and familiar with both specialties.

Each month we will be focusing on one extenders achievements, this month we recognize Michelle Forcina.

Michelle Forcina, P.A.-C.:  Michelle joined us recently in October 2012.  We wanted Michelle specifically because she comes to us with a background in Cardiac Electrophysiology.  She has primarily worked with Electrophysiologist and Device Clinics for the last seven years. She is office based and sees patients at Michigan Heart Rhythm Group all day Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.  Michelle works closely with our device specialist Jan Halash and Amy Douglas as well as Drs. Cragg, Williamson and Kutinsky.  Michelle has an excellent bed side manner and we are finding many patients are choosing to follow up with her for monthly appointments.
