Looking for the Best Heart Failure Physicians in Philadelphia: Tangee's Story


Tangee, Heart Failure Patient, Philadelphia Transplant

Tangee lived with heart failure for more than 15 years. After moving to New Jersey, she began looking for the best cardiologists in Philadelphia and found Mariell Jessup, MD, medical director of the Penn Heart and Vascular Center.

As Tangee's heart continued to deteriorate, Dr. Jessup advised her that a heart transplant may be her best treatment option. Tangee agreed and now, years later, feels better than she has felt in a long time.
