The same expertise behind heart care at The Heart Center of Northeast Georgia Medical Center’s (NGMC’s) 14 office locations in Northeast Georgia is now available in Bethlehem. The Heart Center of NGMC is now accepting patients at its new location at 426 Exchange Blvd., Suite 600.

            As you can tell by its name, the practice is affiliated with Northeast Georgia Medical Center – which has three hospital campuses in Gainesville, Braselton and Winder. That means patients of The Heart Center of NGMC have direct access to elite hospital care should they suffer a heart attack, need intervention such as a stent or angioplasty or require heart surgery.

            “Our new office in Bethlehem gives patients in Barrow County another convenient option for receiving top-rated heart services, close to home,” said Zaid H. Said, MD, the primary cardiologist at The Heart Center of NGMC Bethlehem. “We are pleased to bring the unsurpassed experience and expertise of The Heart Center of NGMC to Bethlehem, and look forward to caring for patients in the community.”

            Dr. Said received his medical degree from the University of Baghdad Medical School. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa., and a fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. He also completed a fellowship in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology at the University of Illinois, and another fellowship in Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging at Emory University in Atlanta. Dr. Said is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease.
