Oconee Heart and Vascular Center is a full-service cardiac practice offering a complete continuum of care for the heart and blood vessels.

About Our Practice

To better meet the needs of patients across Franklin, Hart and Stephens counties, Oconee Heart and Vascular Center is moving its satellite clinic from Toccoa to St. Mary's Sacred Heart Hospital's medical office building in Lavonia, effective April 12.
At the invitation of prestigious Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, Oconee Heart and Vascular Center cardiologist Erick Avelar, M.D., will be the lead local researcher in a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health to study the ability of Computed Tomography – CT – to measure disease in the heart’s arteries.
St. Mary's Health Care System and Oconee Heart and Vascular Center are creating the area's first program to provide early detection of heart problems in patients undergoing treatment for cancer.
We are‬ making it easier to see heart attack damage, heart valve problems, and how well the heart pumps blood using our new Siemens Acuson SC2000, a 3D echocardiogram. See the article by Athens Banner Herald.
