EECP an Alternative Treatment for Heart Failure

James Williams, MD, is an interventional cardiologist treating heart patients with chronic chest pain and heart failure with alternative therapies.

Care for Heart Failure and Chest Pain

At Sacred Heart we provide many types of advanced heart failure treatments. For patients with chronic chest pain and heart failure, James Williams, MD, has expertise in enhanced external counter-pulsation therapy (EECP). This therapy is safe and effective for relieving angina symptoms by increasing the blood supply to the heart and decreasing the cardiac workload. 

Dr. Williams is joined by a team of experienced, compassionate cardiac nurses who help patients achieve a better quality of life. The Heart Failure Clinic at Sacred Heart Pensacola is nationally recognized for having significantly better outcomes than most U.S. hospitals (based on a national three-year study). Within Florida, our Clinic is highly ranked for helping heart failure patients avoid problems that cause them to be re-admitted to the hospital.
