I’m Craig Gernon. I’m one of the cardiologists here at Cotton O’Neil Heart Center.
What conditions do you treat?
I’m a general cardiologist, so I treat the bread and butter issues: high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia — high cholesterol — coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, heart failure — which is unfortunately very common.
Why did you choose to work at Stormont Vail Health?
I came to Stormont about 15 years ago. I really liked the teamwork between the physicians and the hospital. The camaraderie and the teamwork really interested me, so I decided to come here.
If I had a loved one or family member that needed heart care of some kind, I would definitely tell them to come here to Stormont. I think the care here is excellent. I think the colleagues that I’ve been able to work with are very well trained and skilled.
