When asked what makes LifeHope a cut above other medical groups, co-founder Brian McCoy doesn’t hesitate in his answer—“it’s the people,” he says. “We look for those unique providers that stand above the crowd and bring something outstanding to the table, whether that’s cutting-edge technology like Dr. Kevin Lie’s IRIS system or Dr. Reingold’s desire to run against the current of mass-produced, impersonal healthcare.”
A faith-based practice, each one of the providers under LifeHope’s 1.5 million-square-foot umbrella, is handpicked by an experienced leadership team made up of members who have worked with multiple hospital systems and one of the nation’s first PPOs.
The focus at LifeHope isn’t on profits but on intimate patient relationships facilitated by small patient-to-doctor ratios with passionate providers. “We can self-fund what we do so our docs can spend more time with their patients, be proactive with their care and better monitor patient progress. This leads to best-in-class patient outcomes and shorter illness durations. The bottom line is that we give them enough resources and time to actually make a difference in a patient’s life,” McCoy proudly shares. www.lifehopehealthsystem.com

Jason Reingold, MD
Georgia Cardiovascular and Primary Care
What is a common misconception when it comes to heart health?
You often hear that heart disease is a men’s disease but it’s actually one of the leading causes of death for women. Because of frequent misdiagnosis and underestimation of symptoms, heart problems often progress undetected in women until serious complications arise.
What can people do to look out for their heart health?
If you are feeling anything off with your body, get it checked out. For women we encourage them to think about their medical history. Preeclampsia, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis are all risk factors for developing heart disease in their 40s. There are several new innovations when it comes to screenings for your heart health. At Georgia Cardiovascular and Primary care we are proud to offer a vascular age screening with no radiation so you can stay informed of your heart disease risk. www.georgiacardiovascular.com
