I'm a cardiologist in Midtown Manhattan with an interest in sleep apnea as it pertains to the heart. Cardiovascular repercussions of sleep apnea are plentiful and this is an active area of research. Many cardiologists are not attuned to the effects of sleep apnea on the heart, but that is changing recently for the better. I am board certified in 6 fields: Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Echocardiography, Lipidology, Vascular Medicine, and Phlebology (venous disease), as well as certified in Hypertension. We accept new patients in our Manhattan practice. Please note that any comments I make on this forum are intended solely as general information and not as specific patient care advice, nor do they constitute forming a physician-patient relationship. Always consult your physician (or us in person) with any specific medical questions you have.
