About

Bio

I am a Cardiologist that has specialized heart failure and circulatory physiology training, and that also worked closely in the early stages of the LVAD program at Columbia University. I completed my Cardiology training in 1999 at Yale University, and started to practice clinically in 1999. I have been active as a primary and secondary investigator in multiple phase II and phase III clinical medical trials, and was the founder and director of the Heart Failure Unit and program at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie, NY. I was listed in the Castle, Connolly National Physician Directory of "Top Doctors" from 2006-2009, and was Board President of the Dutchess and Ulster county chapter of the American Heart Association, in addition to serving many other leadership roles. I am a passionate and persuasive speaker who is widely viewed as an invaluable resource to my peers and patients. My practice, located on the Upper East side of Manhattan, is dedicated to the prevention, early detection, and aggressive treatment of cardiovascular disease. Disease based medicine is expensive and inefficient, and I think that there is a better way. By teaching my patients to invest in their health pro-actively and identifying disease states before they become clinically manifested, I intend to help guide my patients on a path to a happier and fuller life. The approaches I use are evidence based, and integrate the most advanced noninvasive diagnostics and testing with the most appropriate therapeutic interventions. Each patient is unique, and treatment approaches are tailored to each specific clinical scenario. My practice, however, is not limited to Preventive Cardiology, and also covers all aspects of general clinical Cardiology, and I especially enjoy helping patients with congestive heart failure to improve their symptoms and outcomes. I feel that I have an outstanding bedside manner, and am able to explain complicated conditions to patients while putting them at ease.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
