Coronavirus Announcement

To our AHVI family and those seeking our cardiovascular care:

In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization recommendations regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic affecting humanity, as of March 17th AHVI will be closing it’s office for the next two weeks in response to the ongoing healthcare crisis and pandemic.

This dramatic step is being implemented to safeguard you and your loved ones as well as to contribute to the greater social good by using the major concept of social distancing which will be vital in reducing likelihood of transmission of COVID-19 virus.

Please note that WE WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE TO YOU. The phones will be directly transferred to Dr. Espinoza and his team 24/7 and are available simply by calling the office at 908.237.3405. We will be triaging your medical needs over the phone and determine how best to address them.

AHVI will also, in short order, be participating in telemedicine health services that will provide face-time coverage for patients that request a more in depth assessment.

AHVI wants you to know that we are here for you and will be fully operational again once the crisis begins to enter a less critical phase. We will overcome this together as a community and as a nation.

Dr. Espinoza was in the ER when my father was transported by ambulance. He had had a heart attack at home and waited 2 1/2 hours before calling 911! We were blessed to have Dr. Espinoza as the attending physician, who mobilized all medical resources, made all the right decisions and saved my father’s life. We are eternally grateful to Dr. Espinoza!! Hunterdon’s Finest!
