Making an Appointment
Thank you for considering the University of Virginia’s Thoracic Cardiovascular Surgery Division for your medical care. We know that you have choices and we strive to make your experience at UVA one that will meet your individual needs and provide you with outstanding quality of care. We try to make appointments as quickly as possible with the urgency of the patients’ condition considered.
