“Our mission is to provide thoughtful, comprehensive and compassionate care in a manner that involves the patient. Your doctor will get to know you and sit down and talk with you to determine how to achieve the health that you want.” – ​Dr. Robert Kim, director of consultative cardiology  

Cardiology is a medical specialty concerned with disorders of the heart and blood vessels that make up the cardiovascular system. Cardiovascular disease affects how the heart processes oxygen and nutrients in the blood. More than a third of adults in the U.S. live with one or more types of cardiovascular disease. 

At the Weill Cornell Medicine Division of Cardiology, our physicians provide expert cardiac care with an individualized, comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach. As a patient, you will receive a thorough evaluation to diagnose your specific condition, which may include using our world-class imaging technologies. 

Your care is personal to us. Our team of compassionate physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, clinical technicians and patient coordinators takes the time to learn about your needs and encourages you to ask questions.  

National Leaders in Heart Care 

Ranked as one of the best cardiac programs in New York and in the country, we partner with NewYork-Presbyterian, one of the top hospitals in New York.

All physicians at Weill Cornell Medicine — including our cardiologists — use the latest scientific breakthroughs to provide comprehensive care for all heart conditions. 

Each of our doctors is a highly accomplished physician who prioritizes patient care and well-being. Many are leaders in their fields or are the nation’s top experts in their subspecialty. Our doctors are invested in ensuring your optimal health and are involved from initial diagnosis to follow-up and recovery. We are also able to provide second opinions when you have a complex condition and need expert advice. 

Personal Care for You and Your Heart  

We treat the full range of cardiac disorders and conditions, from adult congenital heart disease to advanced congestive heart failure.  

As our patient, your doctor will get to know you. Our team of cardiologists is a smaller, highly collaborative, multi-talented group that focuses on helping you achieve the health you want by personalizing your care.  

When you meet with a cardiologist at Weill Cornell Medicine, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose your specific condition, which may include the use of our world-class imaging technologies or referral to our sub-specialty diagnostic laboratories and expert cardiologists specializing in interventional cardiology and electrophysiology.  

If you are unsure about your specific condition, please make an appointment with one of our highly trained general cardiologists

Guided by the Latest Research 

Above and beyond treating our patients, our physicians are also committed to producing innovative research in science and medicine that advances the understanding of cardiology conditions, develops novel treatments and improves patient lives. 

As our patient, you can choose to participate in one of our clinical trials to receive the most current treatments. If your doctor believes that you may qualify for one of the studies being conducted in our division, your doctor will discuss this as a treatment option. By joining a clinical trial, you can help expand, enhance and optimize the latest cardiology treatments.

Dr. Nicolo is very knowledgeable, but also really nice and very reassuring. She took the time to explain everything to me and answer all my questions. I think she is an excellent physician. I have worked in health care for 25 years and I'm very picky about my doctors. I highly recommend her.
