Personal Statement

Prior to specializing in radiology, I also completed residency training and board certification in internal medicine. As a thoracic radiologist, I strive to make use of that clinical experience by interpreting every imaging study within the specific clinical context of each individual patient. I strongly believe that a quality driven and individualized approach in radiology can have a vital impact on patient care.  

Biography

Dr. Girvin completed undergraduate medical school training at the University of Cambridge and University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom, followed by separate residencies and dual board certification in internal medicine (Glasgow) and radiology (Edinburgh).  Following fellowship training in thoracic radiology at NYU Langone Health from 2005-2006, he remained there as radiology faculty until 2020.  Dr Girvin divides his clinical time between the New York Presbyterian Cornell and Lower Manhattan Hospitals (LMH) and Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyteria at 53 Beekman Street, and serves as the Director of Thoracic Imaging at LMH. His research interests include practical algorithmic approaches that facilitate radiologic diagnoses, pulmonary thromboembolic disease, and World Trade Center-related sarcoidosis.
