The Cardiology team at NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital is led by board-certified attending cardiologists who are all members of the full-time teaching faculty of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. We provide a comprehensive program of inpatient and outpatient care, intensive care, consultation, and noninvasive cardiac diagnostic testing to patients from Riverdale, Marble Hill, northern Manhattan, and beyond. Physicians in the Columbia Cardiology group also see outpatients at the ColumbiaDoctors Riverdale office.
In Allen Hospital's inpatient units, intensive care unit, and operating rooms, we can handle most acute medical problems. Patients who need to be transferred to the NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia campus for highly specialized interventions—such as cardiac catheterization, pacemaker placement, cardiac surgery, or chest surgery—can receive continuing care from their Allen Hospital cardiologist, since members of our team work at both sites.
Our Emergency Department staff immediately triage and transfer patients with acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) directly to the world-renowned interventional cardiology laboratory at the NYP/Columbia campus for placement of a coronary stent, if needed, to open a blocked artery.
In our Cardiology Diagnostic Center, we provide comprehensive, noninvasive testing for inpatients and outpatients who have been referred by their physicians. We offer state-of-the-art echocardiography, Holter monitoring, transesophagal echocardiography (TEE), and various modes of stress testing, including treadmill and pharmacologic testing with or without radionuclide injection. Convenient appointments are available in a very timely manner, and we accept most insurance plans. We report test results to our patients' physicians within 24 hours of testing. To schedule an appointment in the Cardiac Diagnostic Center, call 212-932-4542.
Cardiology services are available at Allen Hospital as well at ColumbiaDoctors Riverdale.
In addition to being part of NYP/Columbia, each of our cardiologists is a member of the highly regarded ColumbiaDoctors faculty practice. You can experience the level of exceptional care expected from NewYork-Presbyterian in a personal and accessible environment.
