Rami Doukky, MD System Chair of Cardiology
The physicians, nurses, technicians, and other staff of the Division of Cardiology take care of patients with every type of cardiovascular disease, syndrome and condition. We provide evidence-based, high quality care – including, when appropriate, the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic technologies available.
We hope that the information provided here will address any questions you might have regarding clinical care, physician profiles, education and research. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
The foundations of the Cardiology program are patient care, education, and research. Our primary objective is to provide a comprehensive program of quality healthcare with respect and dignity to our patients with cardiovascular disease, regardless of their ability to pay. We are also dedicated to providing exceptional training and education to fellows, residents, medical students, and other healthcare professionals. Our commitment to helping to shape the future of medicine is evident, too, in research efforts that involve both local studies and participation in international multicenter clinical trials.
