Cardiovascular Disease
Clare Hochreiter

I came to Cornell University Medical College In 1980 to start my Cardiology Fellowship training.   There aremany reasons I feel fortunate to have been able to continue at Weill-Cornell. It has given me the opportunity to interactwith an exceptional group of physicians, nurse practioners, and nurses in both cardiology and cardic surgery in a hospitalwhich is equally well staffed in all other specialties. It has allowed me to do research in the area of regurgitantheart valve disease and to teach at many levels. Most of all it has made it possible for me to be part of a team capableof the highest level of care for any patient with cardiac disease. My highest recommendation is that , at my suggestion, many of my family and friends have come here for advanced care and I could not be more pleased with the results.
