Cardiovascular Medicine at Presbyterian Medical Center is committed to providing outstanding care to patients with a full spectrum of cardiovascular conditions. Our cardiologists are highly subspecialized, allowing us to deliver the most advanced cardiovascular care. Along with our cardiothoracic surgeons and mid-level practitioners, we take pride in our team approach to treating our patients. We strive to be available to our referring physicians 24/7, and to communicate with them regularly. We work closely with other specialists in the Penn Health System to assure that all aspects of our patients' health are appropriately managed. And we take seriously our role as educators of Penn Medicine's students, residents and fellows, who will be tomorrow's leaders. As members of Penn Cardiology, there are certain behaviors that we foster to achieve the above stated goals. We expect current and future members of our group to follow 4C's of Penn Cardiology: Communicate, Cooperate, Contribute, Coach.
