Dr. Randolph Chitwood & East Carolina Heart Institute Launch Heart Valve Clinic Microsite
By Adam Pick on April 2, 2013
When I started this website 6 years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. Early on, however, I was very lucky to connect with Dr. Randolph Chitwood, the director of the East Carolina Heart Institute (ECHI) and mitral valve specialist.
Dr. Randolph Chitwood & Me at ECHI
So you know… Dr. Chitwood is also a former patient who had coronary artery bypass surgery in 1998. That said, Dr. Chitwood immediately understood my mission to educate and empower patients. Today, I consider Dr. Chitwood a friend, an advisor and an amazing surgeon who successfully treated many patients in our community — including Scott Newson, Lori Glew and Mary Watson.
On behalf of the patients and caregivers in our community, I want to thank Dr. Chitwood and the entire staff at ECHI including Dr. Nifong, Kristen King, Amy Etheridge, and Jerome Fuller, for their support of this project.
Keep on tickin!
