About Our Practice

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.
Cardiologist, Dr. John Layher implanted the area’s first S-ICD cardiac defibrillator, a miniature electronic device created by Boston Scientific and recently approved by the FDA for general use.
St. Mary’s Health Care System has received full accreditation as a chest pain center with PCI from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC).
