Pee Dee Cardiology

Pee Dee Cardiology launched its history of cardiac care in 1986, bringing a much needed specialty to the Florence region. The practice, which began with one cardiologist, has continued to grow over the years, adding new physicians as the demand increased. In 1990, Dr. Alan M. Blaker, joined Pee Dee Cardiology and today serves as the Managing Partner.

In the late 1990s, Pee Dee Cardiology expanded to Horry County with an office in Loris. A second office in Little River was established with the opening of the new Seacoast Outpatient Center in 2000.  In 2013, services extended to Sumter County when Dr. Dale Cannon joined Pee Dee Cardiology. In 2014, Dr. Dennis Lang joined Dr. Cannon in the Pee Dee Cardiology Sumter practice.

Also in 2014 Dr. Brian Wall and Dr. John Patton joined the Pee Dee Cardiology group in the Florence practice.

What started as a single physician cardiology practice in 1986 has now grown to a total of 16 cardiologists, interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists.

Physicians in the practice today include: Dr. Blaker, Dr. Thomas L. Stoughton, Dr. Anil Om, Dr. James T. Lee, Dr. Nicolette B. Naso, Dr. Evans P. Holland, Jr., Dr. Gavin M. Leask, Dr. Fred M.
