Orth, Roger M, MD
Dr. Orth is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever met!He is knowledgeable not only in his field of medicine but also very knowledgeable in other medical fields (which has been more than valuable in referrals). In August 2013, during an endoscopy, he found I had esophageal cancer. While he was on vacation Dr. Orth received my biopsy results. He called me right away to let me know the scary news. He immediately scheduled appointments with an oncologist (Dr. James Watkins), a CAT scan, and an endoscopy/ultrasound, all within three days of my diagnosis. He did all of this while on vacation! Thanks to Dr. Orth I was on chemo within two weeks. He has followed my treatment and guided me to life-saving resources. He is a Doctor who not only offers great skill and knowledge but also offers hope and compassion. I could not imagine going through this ordeal without my favorite Doctor:, Dr. Roger Orth!To say I trust him implicitly is an understatement. Of all the doctors I have seen in the past several months, Dr. Orth is the one who really cares; the one I really trust!I always recommend him to friends and family and thus recommend him to anyone who reads this! Tina M., Foley AL.P.S. His office staff is helpful and friendly and go beyond the call of duty to help in any way they can.

Reed Rusty MD
Dr. Reed is te best pediatrician I've encountered (out of 5). His office staff is also kind, compassionate and efficient. It is clear that this team cares about kids and isn't just trying to make money. We were here visiting family for the holidays when my 9 month old got ill fast. I began calling pediatricians the morning after Christmas at 8:00 a.m. Three told me they were not taking new patients regardless of the situation (I should add that we have insurance and were paying cash and certainly willing to wait to be worked in). Dr. Reed's staff heard my poor baby in the background on the phone (as did the other offices) and told us to bring him immediately. They took us straight back, tested his oxygen saturation and gave him a breathing treatment for RSV. Thank goodness we found them. We liked Dr. Reed and his staff so much I wish we could take him back to TN! I cannot recommend these folks enough!

Tips & Advices
The main difference separating a heart attack from heart failure is in the underlying reasons for the occurrence. Hearts attacks can be traced to blockages in arteries and acute flares, while heart failure is more likely to be due to congenital heart disease and a more developed condition.
Arrhythmia is an abnormal beating of the heart that may feel like it comes at a fluttering, accelerated, or otherwise irregular pace. While in many cases these occurrences can be infrequent, benign and go away on their own, if persistent, they may require further consultation with a cardiologist.
Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fatty body compound used to produce hormones. It becomes a problem for heart health when there are high levels of bad cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which can lead to arterial congestion.
Visits to a cardiologist typically entail a doctor reviewing and assessing your health, and more specifically within the context of your heart health. It is important to prepare for appointments by having a list of medications and any documents related to your medical history. Some tests (like EKGs) may be administered on a first visit.
Invasive cardiologists are distinguished from non-invasive cardiologists for their ability to perform a number of specialized procedures, including pacemaker and defibrillator insertions, cardioversions and emergent angioplasties.
