Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist has opened a new cardiology clinic in Thomasville, dedicated to providing advanced heart and vascular care.
The new clinic, Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Cardiology - Thomasville, will be inside the Wake Forest Baptist Internal Medicine - Thomasville facility located at 711 National Hwy.
This clinic will offer new patient visits, follow-up visits and EKGs as needed. It will be open on Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“Heart health is extremely important, and prevention is key to combating heart disease, strokes or heart attacks,” said Dr. David Zhao, chief of cardiovascular medicine and executive director of Wake Forest Baptist’s Heart and Vascular Center and professor of cardiology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. “Our providers are ready to see patients at this new clinic which increases access to high-quality cardiac care in this community.”
Two providers will rotate at the clinic every other week.
Dr. Thomas Folk, a cardiologist at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, received his medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine and completed his residency at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist.
Meredith Mitchell, a nurse practitioner, is board-certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She treats patients along with Folk at both the Congdon Heart and Vascular Center at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist High Point Medical Center and at Wake Forest Baptist’s Heart and Vascular - Asheboro.
