Cardiology Physicians

Faculty members of the Division of Cardiology at UTMB Health are strongly motivated to provide our patients with state-of-the-art and compassionate care, made possible by their years of experience, teaching, and research. Our strength is specialization and teamwork–while each faculty member focuses on a very specialized area of cardiology, he/she collaborates with other experts to provide patients with the best overall care.

We have four major sections within our division: General Cardiology including Cardiac Imaging, Consultative and Inpatient Cardiology, Cardiac Rehabilitation, and Heart Station; Heart Failure, Transplant, and Circulatory Assist Device Service; Heart Rhythm (Electrophysiology) Service; and Interventional Cardiology Service including Peripheral Vascular Intervention.
