George Antonopoulos, M.D., Michael Malinics, DO, FACC , and Suphichaya Muangman, M.D. are now part of the interdisciplinary team providing care to the cardiac patients at Glendale.

Cardiac management at Glendale provides patients with disease management along with the education and support required to lead a healthy lifestyle when they return home.

“The time spent in cardiac management allows the patient to get well enough to avoid a relapse and a subsequent re-hospitalization,” explained Antonopoulos in a new release.
