Cardiologist Dr. Gregory Katz has joined Nuvance Health affiliate The Heart Center in Poughkeepsie. He will see patients at the City of Poughkeepsie location and has privileges at Vassar Brothers Medical Center.

“I strive to offer personalized cardiovascular care that integrates cutting-edge research and compliments each patient’s unique characteristics and goals to help them achieve better health," said Katz, who comes from Fair Haven, NJ.

He specializes in preventive cardiology, coronary artery disease, disorders of cholesterol, and metabolic syndrome, a group of conditions such as elevated blood pressure and sugar that occur together and increase your risk of heart disease stroke, and type 2 diabetes.

Prior to joining Health Quest, Katz earned his medical degree from New York University’s School of Medicine in Manhattan.

At NYU Langone, he completed his internal medicine residency and was selected to serve as senior chief resident, an educational leadership role within the training program, in 2015.

His most recent research experience has examined cardiovascular disease in patients with lupus, an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body's immune system attacks its own tissues and organs.

In addition, Katz has contributed to quality improvement efforts and the development of faster evaluation processes for patients who visit the emergency room with chest pain during his time at NYU Langone.

He has also been published in more than 15 scholarly publications, including book chapters and peer-reviewed articles.
