Eastside Cardiology Associates was opened in 1978 by Dr. Bob Haynes, the first cardiologist practicing at Evergreen Hospital. Three years later Dr. Jim Schneider joined a very busy Dr. Haynes and the practice began to grow quickly. Stephanie Baughman joined the group as Clinic Administrator a year after Dr. Schneider. Dr. Rubin Maidan joined the practice in 1984 adding expertise in the growing field of interventional cardiology. In 1985 we opened the first cardiac rehabilitation program in the area.
Dr. Bill Getchell came to the practice in 2000 with specialty in general cardiology. Dr. Getchell was named as one of the Seattle area's top docs in Seattle magazine in 2008. Dr. Edward Kim arrived in the summer of 2001, further increasing the capability of coronary intervention. Dr. Mark Vossler arrived in March of 2002 and started the congestive heart failure program with Evergreen Hospital. Dr. Harry Yu joined the group in August of 2002 and set up our nuclear cardiology program. The clinic continued to grow and in the summer of 2007, we welcomed Dr. Rachael Wyman who is an expert in the prevention of cardiac disease. In August of 2008 Dr. Cynthia Warner joined the practice adding her expertise in echocardiography, heart failure, and valvular heart disease. In December 2012, Dr. Christopher Price joins Evergreen Cardiology specializing in Cardiat CT, Non-invasive Cardiology and Vascular Medicine.
Our space and our staff have multiplied many times over the past 31 years and we are proud to be a part of the community and care for our many wonderful patients.
Regular office hours are Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm. We strongly believe in the value of your time and will do our best to see you at the time of your scheduled appointment.
We take appointments and make every effort to see patients in a timely manner. However, sometimes it becomes necessary to divert attention to severely ill patients that present life threatening emergencies. We ask for your understanding when this happens. We will keep you informed of all delays.
Our telephones are answered personally by an operator from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Phones do transfer to the answering service for lunch coverage between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm. Our operators are trained to handle all incoming telephone calls. This allows the physicians and nurses to attend to their scheduled patients with a minimum of interruptions. Each telephone call is prioritized by urgency and we return all calls by the end of each working day or following morning at the latest. A nurse handles all urgent/emergent issues at the time of your call.
Payment is expected at the time of service unless prior arrangements have been made with the billing department. We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.
