Just two years ago, Margaret S. was not feeling her best and her health had taken a turn for the worst. She was living in the Bay Area and had recently underwent a procedure which ended up with a case of pneumonia and multiple other critical complications, post-surgery. Overall, she was not doing well.
“I could barely stand up on my own after being discharged from the hospital,” said Margaret. She was sent home with hospice care expecting the worst.
Margaret is amazed to think how far she has come in a relatively short time frame. Today, she is doing remarkably well and attributes a local practice for putting her on a successful path of health. “I was still very sick and fearing the worst when I made my way to Las Vegas,” said Margaret. “I was living in California and thought I would die there but I made the decision to move to be closer to my daughter,” said Margaret.

And glad she did, Margaret’s daughter connected her to Alfred Danielian, MD, FACC, FASE, board-certified in cardiovascular disease, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology at Las Vegas Heart Associates. She established care with Dr. Danielian, a leading cardiologist in her new home in September of 2021. Margaret explained, “I’m so fortunate I found him, he performed some much-needed routine testing on my heart and helped get to the root cause of my issue.”

This led Margaret to Niuton Koide, MD, FACC, board-certified in electrophysiology and Jeffrey Levisman, MD, FACC, FSCAI, board-certified in interventional cardiology to help treat heart failure, atrial fibrillation and arrhythmia. “I’m so lucky to have found three of the most caring, wonderful and highly-skilled physicians in one place to address my health issues,” Margaret mentioned.

After establishing care, she underwent an ablation procedure in order to control an irregular heartbeat. It was also decided she was a candidate for a mitral valve clip and later was scheduled for a pacemaker implant.
“It’s interesting, I was living in Mountain View, California when my health took a turn, I ended up being treated at MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas,” Margaret said. “It was here that I experienced a silver lining with a very positive medical experience, exceptional care and addressing some important health concerns,” said Margaret.
“I’m so grateful to my daughter for helping me find the care I so desperately needed along with these wonderful healthcare professionals,” said Margaret. “People come from other parts of the country to receive care with this group,” mentions Margaret, “and I’m so blessed to have found them.”
