Advanced Diagnostics and Treatment Saves Lives at Saint Mary’s

Jim Huml Received Great Cardiac Care

Over a decade ago, Jim Huml had major heart surgery. So when he recently experienced discomfort in his chest, his primary care physician recommended that he schedule an appointment with Dr. Sastry Prayaga, cardiologist with Saint Mary’s Regional Health System.

“Dr. Prayaga and his team were truly concerned about me. Every person taking care of me made sure I was comfortable and all my questions were answered,” Jim said. Following a thorough evaluation of his condition, Jim received treatment where a stent was implanted. Today, he’s feeling good and is back to his normal routine, which includes working part-time and fishing on the lake as much as he can. “The people at Saint Mary’s love what they do. That showed in the great care I received.”

Saint Mary’s Regional Health System is committed to helping folks like Jim and others in the Arkansas River Valley stay their heart healthiest. Advanced diagnostics and treatment performed in Saint Mary’s two cardiac cath labs is provided by the system’s team of four highly skilled, board-certified cardiologists. The true value of bringing patients a higher level of heart care is found in the results Saint Mary’s delivers; the lives we are able to improve and, in many cases, those we save.
