Dr. Emad Aziz Named a New York Rising Star; Four Additional SLR Cardiologists Recognized by Super Doctors


If they were to require specialized medical care, surveyed physicians would select to receive treatment from their colleague, Emad Aziz, DO, MB, CHB, FACC, of St. Luke’s and Roosevelt Hospitals (SLR) and University Medical Practice Associates (UMPA), according to Super Doctors and Key Professional Media. Nominated by his peers and chosen by researchers, Dr. Emad Aziz has thus earned recognition as a New York Rising Star of 2013, a listing published in the Rising Stars edition of The New York Times Magazine on November 24, 2013.

New York Rising Stars by Super Doctors identifies outstanding local physicians from more than 40 medical specialties who have demonstrated noteworthy achievements early on in their careers. Evaluated on significant accomplishments from his first ten years in cardiology practice, including his fellowships, hospital appointments, and leadership positions, Dr. Aziz joins fewer than 2.5 percent of doctors from the area to be named New York Rising Stars.

An attending physician in SLR’s Department of Medicine, Dr. Aziz also directs the Advanced Cardiac Admission Program (ACAP) at SLR. He has conducted cutting-edge studies and been widely published in cardiology, heart failure, electrophysiology, clinical outcomes, and cardiac syncope management, including extended monitoring using implantable loop recorders. An electrophysiologist, he is experienced in all complex ablations, including atrial fibrillation, pulmonary vein isolation, and ventricular tachycardia for normal and ischemic hearts. He is skilled in advanced cardiac device implantations and certified in the most complex laser lead extraction for infected devices. Dr. Aziz is a member of the American Heart Association’s Council on Quality of Care and Outcomes Research.

Four additional SLR cardiologists also received recognition in the November edition of Rising Stars: Dayana Eslava, MD (Director, Latino Heart Program; Associate Director of Coronary Care Unit), Randy Cohen, MD (Medical Director, UMPA/Cardiology), Gregory Janis, MD (Attending Physician, Department of Medicine), and Eitan Klein, MD (Attending Physician, Department of Medicine).
