Thank you for visiting Parkersburg Cardiology Associates.


Parkersburg Cardiology Associates was started in 1972 by Dr. Michael A. Santer, Jr. A year later Dr. M. David Avington joined him. There have been many milestones between then and now such as the opening of the first catheterization laboratory in 1988 and open heart surgery in 2004. Over 50 years later Parkersburg Cardiology finds itself in a new building with a large team of providers and over 50 staff members. Parkersburg Cardiology Associates appreciates the support shown by the community throughout the years and stands ready to serve and meet the cardiovascular needs of the Mid-Ohio Valley for many years to come.”
