Get to know Cardiologist Dr. Iani Patsias, who serves patients throughout the State of Florida.
Dr. Patsias is a cardiologist at Memorial Healthcare System specializing in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology. He cares for patients with refractory cases of heart failure, which is a common pathway for any form of severe heart disease. In many cases, he uses mechanical circulatory support devices (either temporary or permanent) to aid a failing heart. He also provides pre- and post-heart transplantation care management.
“I love how medicine provides a humanistic approach to science and technology. Every patient is different and I believe as a physician, I need to understand the patient before the condition. Understanding what someone is experiencing, going through and their goals and dreams helps me to help them improve their health and heart function. It’s also equally important for patients to understand their specific heart condition. I truly believe that the better informed a patient is, the better they will do” expressed the doctor.
A native of Peru, he graduated with his medical degree from the Universidad de San Martín de Porres in 2008. After relocating to the United States, he completed his residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in cardiovascular disease at the Henry Ford Hospital in 2015 and 2018, respectively.
