    Clinical Autonomic Dysfunction : Measurement, Indications, Therapies and Outcomes.

Treated Autonomic Dysfunction Should Not Be Disabling

About Dr. Nicholas L. DePace, M.D., F.A.C.C.

Dear Valued Patients

I would like to introduce our new physician assistant Giselle Mas Caballero, PA-C that we have hired at Franklin Cardiovascular. She’s a graduate of Rutgers University and she will be assisting me with hypertensive, cardiovascular and lipid abnormality patients, as well as those with autonomic dysfunction and with connective tissue disease, such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.  If you haven’t seen Dr. DePace recently, or do not have a scheduled appointment, he would like to see you personally at the medical center at 1100 Liberty Place, Sicklerville, NJ.  We are only seeing patients at this location and we have not been at the old Ganttown Rd., Sewell, NJ location in over 3 years. To call and schedule an appointment, please dial 856-589-6034 or email us at

We are working very hard to reduce waiting times.  We are aware that this has been onerous in the past.

With best wishes for a happy and prosperous new year,


Dr. Nicholas L. DePace, MD, FACC



Insurance Notice

Dearest Patients

September 12, 2023

Effective immediately for all Aetna patients, due to Aetna not recognizing the technology we use for Tilt Table Testing and Sudomotor Testing, we are unable to provide this service to Aetna patients unless payment is made up front for these services. Aetna, unfortunately considers the testing we provide as experimental.


Although we accept most major insurances, some carriers DO NOT pay for autonomic testing that we provide. All patients are expected to either pay out of pocket for these tests upfront or make a payment arrangement with the billing department. One of the procedure codes we used in the past for testing 95943 was deleted for 2022 and no replacement code was given for the testing machine (Physio PS) we currently utilize for the initial test. This will be an out-of-pocket cost for all insurances We value you as patients but unfortunately, we must insist on this policy at the current time.


We are affiliated with the Following Hospital Systems

A Letter from Dr. Nicholas DePace

Dearest patients, 


Effective immediately our office will no longer be filling out any type of disability forms or FMLA forms.  Unfortunately, due to the time consuming nature, Pandemic constraints on the practice, the burden of appeals and constant requests we are deferring all disabilities and/or FMLA decisions up to your family physician. We will provide you or your PCP with a copy  

of your visit(s) evaluation upon request.


Thank you for your understanding.

Franklin Cardiovascular is now partnering with ChartSpan to provide Chronic Care Management. For more information, call our Office at (856) 589-6034 or ask at our Front Desk.

Now, after six months of treatment, I am doing significantly better and am on a path to continued improvement. I am extremely grateful for their help.
