  • Bio

    After completing a Post Doc at a Nobel Prize winning lab, Dr. Feldman went on to study molecular mechanisms of heart failure, cardiogenic shock, and heart transplantation. Additionally, he has conducted research on mechanical circulatory support devices. He has contributed to leading research, published in national and international journals, which helped engender FDA approval of some of the most important mechanical support devices in use today. His work also helped establish national and international guidelines that, in part, set the global standard of care for every advanced myocardial therapy (Heart Failure and Heart Transplant) program in the world.

    Dr. Feldman has also conducted extensive research into healthcare disparities in cardiac care, and the impact on African American communities. He’s authored numerous studies exploring how race and socioeconomic factors impact blood pressure, atherosclerosis, and even readiness to adopt an exercise regimen.

    Prior to joining Newark Beth Israel, Dr. Feldman served as the Director of Cardiovascular & Critical Care and the Director of Advanced Myocardial and Circulatory Support at the University of Cincinnati, where he worked with the team to improve overall survival rates for heart failure and heart transplant patients. He also played a pivotal role in establishing the nationally ranked Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant program at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, The Ohio State University and The University of Cincinnati.

    Philosophy of Care:

    I believe in a multi-faceted vision of care that combines cutting edge research, molecular biology, and the best clinical data available. This approach is combined with over 20 years of experience taking care of patients at the bedside. I take my role caring for my patients and their families very seriously and desire to treat all patients and families with dignity and respect. This patient-centered philosophy requires that patients and their families are all treated with compassion, vigilance and a dedication to achieve the best outcome.
