About Andrew J. Doorey, MD

I have loved my career in the dynamic field of cardiology, especially interventional cardiology. With the advances of the last few decades, we can now quickly abort even large heart attacks in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory (cath lab) and often have people discharged within a day or two after such an event.

I have loved my career in the dynamic field of cardiology, especially interventional cardiology. With the advances of the last few decades, we can now quickly abort even large heart attacks in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory (cath lab) and often have people discharged within a day or two after such an event. What we do is not so complicated, as it is basically ˜plumbing in the heart, and its gratifying when we can explain things in simple terms that patients can easily understand. My long experience as an aircraft pilot has given me lots of insight into the safety culture that underlies the remarkable safety of commercial aviation, and we are trying to bring some of these principles to the cath lab to make our workplace safer.
