Roberts into second week at Newman Cardiology

The newest cardiologist at Newman Regional Health says his move to Emporia is an adventure -- and one he hopes will lead to a lot of lives being saved.

Dr. Roger Roberts is now in his second week at Newman Cardiology after being a cardiologist in Wichita since the early 1980s.

Dr. Roberts will handle general cardiology procedures, but his specialty is interventional cardiology, and he plans to use "leading-edge" technology to help patients.

Dr. Roberts joins Dr. Mulugeta Fissha as Newman Cardiology's full-time cardiologists. He says he's looking forward to serving the area, which has used Newman Cardiology at a heavier pace than expected.
