NCMA News: Cardiovascular Services Expands in Mendocino and Lake County

To meet the growing clinical needs in Mendocino County, two new cardiac specialists have joined Northern California Medical Associates (NCMA). Dr. Richard Rattin and Dr.  Christine Rattin practice in NCMA’s Ukiah and Willits offices. These local care centers offer general cardiology services as well as electrocardiograms, holter monitoring and  event recording, cardiac stress testing, adult echocardiography and stress  echocardiography, vascular and peripheral carotid imaging and nuclear cardiac imaging.

“The addition of two highly specialized cardiologists means that residents will have expanded access to state-of-the-art cardiac diagnostics – without having to leave the area,” explains NCMA CEO, Ruth Skidmore. “We’re proud to partner with these wonderful physicians.”
