Dr. Parag Goyal, an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine and the Division of Cardiology, is leading a newly established program for HFpEF (Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction). The HFpEF Program at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is the first and only subspecialty program in all of New York dedicated to this unique subtype of heart failure. Patients with HFpEF develop heart failure symptoms like fatigue and shortness of breath despite normal (or preserved) heart pump function. There is often uncertainty and significant challenges with both diagnosing and treating this complex condition. The HFpEF Program aims to assist with both diagnosis and treatment in order to ultimately improve outcomes of this vulnerable population.
With a team that also includes a nurse practitioner and social worker who specialize in the care of heart failure patients, Dr. Goyal and the HFpEF program are focused on providing comprehensive care with individualized treatments based on each patient’s unique cardiovascular and medical profile. The HFpEF program offers access to state-of-the-art therapies, the opportunity to participate in clinical trials, and integrated care with a particular focus on closely coordinating with other specialties as needed. Patients also receive education on best strategies for self-care and are encouraged to actively participate in shared decision-making along with their family members and caregivers.
The HFpEF Program is located at 1305 York Avenue on the 8th Floor. To schedule an appointment or for further information, please call (646) 962-7571.
