Garrett Surrency, NP-C is the primary provider at the Congestive Heart Failure Clinic, located within the Tift Regional Heart & Vascular Center. Under the guidance of board-certified cardiologists, Garrett and his nursing team provide specialized care and education for patients diagnosed with congestive heart failure, helping them better understand their condition, manage their health and minimize the need for hospital readmission.
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a condition in which the heart’s function as a pump is inadequate to deliver oxygen rich blood to the body. Congestive heart failure can be caused by:
Diseases that weaken the heart muscle
Diseases that cause stiffening of the heart muscles
Diseases that increase oxygen demand by the body tissue beyond the capability of the heart to deliver adequate oxygen-rich blood
For a patient to be enrolled in the clinic, a referral must be made by the patient’s physician. Contact the clinic by calling 229-353-4243.
