Doctors in the Reading area scrambled to treat several patients who suffered heart attacks last weekend.
Berks Cardiologists treated six people for heart attacks at the area’s two local hospitals, said Dr. Andrew Waxler, a cardiologist with the Spring Township-based practice.
The number of heart attacks was higher than usual, but hardly unprecedented, he said.
“I can’t say we’re noticing more heart attacks recently,” Waxler said. “But I can say we are noticing a lot of them.”
