Cardiology refers to the diagnosis, management and prevention of diseases related to the heart. We offer both in- and outpatient consultations with our cardiologists and cardiac nurses, and use a multidisciplinary approach to provide high-quality care to you and your family. Cardiology at Stony Brook Medicine provides a 24-hour, 7-day per week consultative service that focuses on compassionate care and the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
We offer subspecialty expertise focused on heart disease prevention and risk factor assessment; cardiovascular imaging; heart rhythm disorder evaluation and management, including electrophysiology study; heart failure management and treatment; women's heart disease, including heart disease in pregnancy; and cardio-oncology to address heart problems before, during and after treatment for cancer.
Stony Brook Heart Institute experts provide the full range of cardiac care — whether you are looking to improve your overall heart health, prevent the progression of cardiovascular disease or needing a lifesaving medical intervention, our renowned physician experts can help. We work collaboratively with each other, your primary care physician, and you, to map out the best diagnostic and treatment plan possible, given your specific situation.

The Stony Brook Difference
Unlike many other clinical cardiology programs, we feature 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week access to the best cardiovascular care in Suffolk County. We offer the unique service of a specialty nurse dedicated exclusively to patients being discharged from the hospital. This important service ensures that the transition from the inpatient environment to the outpatient environment occurs seamlessly. We are also often called on to take on complex cases that other hospitals are not able to handle. We pride ourselves on the ability to integrate cardiac care into already-existing treatment plans, so each patient is treated comprehensively.
