Marshall Health expands specialty care at Teays Valley location

SCOTT DEPOT, W.Va. – A little more than one year after Marshall Health’s Teays Valley office opened to patients at 300 Corporate Center Drive in Scott Depot, the health care group has added two additional services to its 55,000-square-foot clinic.

Cardiology services, including general cardiology, interventional, invasive, non-invasive and electrophysiology are now available at Marshall Health-Teays Valley with the addition of N. Andrew Vaughan, M.D., M.B.A., a board-certified, fellowship-trained cardiologist. Vaughan joins Mehiar El-Hamdani, M.D., an interventional cardiologist, and Paul Okhumale, M.D., an electrophysiologist, in providing heart care to Putnam County and its surrounding areas. 

Vaughan has been named an assistant professor in the department of cardiovascular services at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, with a subspecialty certification in cardiovascular disease, and the American Society of Echocardiography.   

He earned his medical degree from West Virginia University in Morgantown, before completing a residency in internal medicine at Charleston Area Medical Center in Charleston. Vaughan’s advanced training includes a cardiology fellowship at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He has more than 30 years of experience in cardiology care, specializing in non-invasive, preventive and general cardiology. Vaughan’s practice also places a special emphasis on nutrition as it relates to heart disease and heart health, and he is a Certified Culinary Medicine Specialist from the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University in New Orleans.

In addition to heart care, dermatology services are now available at Marshall Health-Teays Valley. Annette Gaskins, APRN, FNP-BC, an experienced family nurse practitioner with Marshall Dermatology, is also accepting new patients at Marshall Health-Teays Valley.
