"Offering a full-time heart and vascular office to rural communities like Winslow is paramount in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease," Dr. Martin said. "In addition to providing comprehensive cardiovascular care, I am committed to providing community outreach and education to Winslow, Holbrook, and the Navajo and Hopi reservations and surrounding communities. Providing the best heart care is more than just treating a condition, it is preventing it as well."
