Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin serves Northeast Wisconsin with a location on the west side of Appleton. We’re off College Avenue, near the Fox River Mall and Appleton International Airport.
For the past 50 years, the doctors of Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin have provided our patients with high quality, compassionate care.
As health care continues to evolve, we have made the decision to return to private practice so we may have more control over day-to-day operations and patient care decisions. We believe that serving you as an independent cardiology group, will bring you the best experience along with the highest quality care at a lower cost.
Effective April 1, 2019, we began treating patients in our new state-of-the-art facility. This is the new home of the same cardiologists that have been providing care to northeast Wisconsin since 1968. At the Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin we are able to provide diagnostic testing, labs and common, in-office procedures. We will continue to serve our outlying communities in New London, Ripon, Shawano, and Waupaca. Your cardiologist will also continue to provide services if you are admitted to a ThedaCare hospital or Ascension St. Elizabeth. At each hospital you must specifically ask for a Heart and Vascular cardiologist.
Let us reassure you that you will continue to receive the same exceptional care you have come to expect from us. We are excited about the ways this move allows us to improve your overall health care experience. Doing what is best for our patients will always remain our highest priority.
Today Is World Heart Day
Each year on September 29th, we recognize World Heart Day across the globe. Its purpose is to call attention to the fact that Heart Disease and Stroke are the world's leading cause of death, claiming 18.6 million lives each year. The unfortunate reality is that if people can take steps to control risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet, and lack of physical activity, at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided.
Everyone, even those who are non-smoking, healthy eating and physically active, have risks of potential heart and vascular ailments. Examples would be arrhythmia, hypertension, valve disease or various inherited heart conditions.
Women, in particular, need to know that some heart disease symptoms can differ from those in men, so women have a risk of being diagnosed less often with heart disease than men. Most concerning is that women are more likely than men to have a heart attack with no severe blockage in an artery.
Make time to see your primary care physician for a routine physical exam that includes lab work for cholesterol and blood sugar levels. And consider scheduling yourself or loved ones for a Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring exam to understand your risk. ... See MoreSee Less
Update on our call center. - Thank you for the responses!
I am happy to report that we now have some new people hired who are in training. Since our call center staff need to do more than just answer calls, such as being able to schedule a patient's appointment, the training to be able to use our Electronic Health Record takes some time but we expect to be back to full staff in the near future.
Thank you for all the responses and ideas.

Great place. Glad help is on the way
I finally got to the second caller in the system and was disconnected. I spent over an hour and a half trying to reschedule an appointment. You would think that answering calls would be a priority. Overall this provider has been a disappointment. It's not just the phones.
