“I like to partner with patients and utilize guidelines, directed therapeutic, and evidence-based treatments to achieve their healthcare goals."
Dr. James Gerardo, MD, PhD, joins Mount Nittany Physician Group Cardiology as an interventional cardiologist.
Interventional cardiologists at Mount Nittany Physician Group are specially trained to perform minimally invasive, nonsurgical, procedures for the treatment of heart attacks, coronary artery disease, valve disease and vascular disease. The high-quality care provided by the Mount Nittany Physician Group interventional cardiologists has been an essential component to Mount Nittany Health’s success in earning Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence (ACE) for the last seven years.
Dr. Gerardo earned a Bachelor of Science in biology from The Pennsylvania State University and a Doctor of Medicine and a Ph.D. in physiology from East Carolina University School of Medicine. He is a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine specializing in interventional cardiology and cardiovascular disease.
“I like to partner with patients and utilize guidelines, directed therapeutic, and evidence-based treatments to achieve their healthcare goals,” said Dr. Gerardo.
The cardiology team at Mount Nittany Health strives to treat patients long before they face a cardiac event that might require an invasive procedure. In addition to a broad range of invasive and interventional procedures, Mount Nittany Health offers non-invasive tests to assess heart function to prevent the onset of heart disease. Skilled physicians also offer useful guidance on lifestyle choices that can improve long-term heart health.
