A field of roses to doctors Gracia and Wolf and their amazing team for the dedication to CHAPS “Cardiac Health Advancement Programs” and the level of help they provide. It is almost a year now since just two hours a week for 12 weeks, changed my life. Things that worried me and others I wasn’t so concerned with, were all addressed. I learned so much about my heart, body mechanics, the food I eat, the meds I take and put it all into perspective with hands-on approach and in words I understood. People came in to talk in a caring environment, questions were encouraged and, just having the one-on-one advice from these professionals was a gem in itself. Doctors, nurses, therapists, physic dietitians, diabetic care, etc.

If you have had a cardiac event, such as a stroke, heart attack or bypass, or any serious issues related to cardio, talk to your doctor for a referral to CHAPS. We are so lucky to finally have some funding and people willing to put this program to work. I feel they gave their all to help me through all my medical problems and guided me to be the best I can be. You just can’t beat it.
