PCP and Cardiologist Save Patient's Life | Loyola Medicine

Loyola primary care doctor and heart specialist team up to save a patient's life

Although he's in his 70s, Anthony doesn’t have any plans of slowing down, and he credits his good health to his primary care physician, Josephine Dlugopolski-Gach, MD. The importance of having a trusted primary care physician became evident when Anthony started having nondescript symptoms of just “not feeling well.” As it turned out, he had a blockage in his heart that could easily have been fatal. Thanks to the teamwork of Loyola physicians Dr. Dlugopolski and cardiologist Lowell Steen, Jr., MD, in a matter of days Anthony was back to living his active life. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please visit https://www.loyolamedicine.org/primary-care or call 888-584-7888.
