Melbourne Regional Medical Center and Steward Medical Group Welcome Cardiologist Darlene Go, MD, FACC
Melbourne, Florida (February 19, 2019) - Melbourne Regional Medical Center and Steward Medical Group welcome Darlene Go, MD, FACC, to its staff of physicians, enhancing the access to cardiac care for patients in the region.
Joining the hospital staff and Steward Medical Group, which are both a part of Steward Health Care, signifies a return to Melbourne Regional Medical Center for Dr. Go. She previously was in practice at the hospital from 2010-2012.
“I am delighted to be returning to the Melbourne community to use my skills and expertise to help patients in the region,” said Dr. Go. “I really enjoy medicine. When you see someone get better, you get a very gratifying sense of accomplishment.”
Dr. Go began her practice in cardiology in 1996 and has been treating patients in Central Florida since 2000. Her interest in cardiac care, however, dates back to when she was in the first grade when her mother experienced heart problems.
“That’s when it all started for me,” said Dr. Go. “Most of my family was in the medical field. It was something very much encouraged.”
Board certified in Internal Medicine, Dr. Go is also a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology with a special clinical interest in treating invasive, non-interventional cardiac issues.
Dr. Go began practicing cardiology following completion of a fellowship at the State University of New York, Heath Science Center, in Brooklyn, NY. She earned her medical degree from Cebu Institute of Medicine and completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in New York City.
One of the exciting advancements in her field today, she said, is the improvement in medication for cardiac patients. “We’ve come a long way in terms of treating heart failure,” said Dr. Go. “We have new medicines that produce remarkable results. We’re seeing people’s hearts get better.”
“Dr. Go is a wonderful addition to our medical staff,” said Ron Gicca, president of Melbourne Regional Medical Center. “She brings proven skill and knowledge in cardiovascular medicine and a commitment to quality and compassionate care,” Gicca said.
Steward’s footprint in the region includes Melbourne Regional Medical Center, as well as nearby Rockledge Regional Medical Center and Sebastian River Medical Center. Melbourne Regional Medical Center is fully accredited by The Joint Commission. Steward also has more than twenty practices serving the Brevard County community.
Dr. Go’s office is at 240 N. Wickham Rd, Suite 202, Melbourne, FL 32935. She is accepting new patients and her office may be contacted at (321) 541-1746 to schedule an appointment.
