Cardiovascular disease remains the nation’s leading cause of death, and UCSF is a pioneer in developing better ways to diagnose, and prevent heart disease. Our mission is to provide the best possible care to all patients with cardiovascular disease, make important discoveries that benefit patients and offer the best training for cardiology and subspecialty fellows.
“[Patients] are looking for understanding and reassurance, and I try to alleviate their fear right off the bat. I let them share, give them enough information – but not so much that I overwhelm them.” - Dr. Peter Teng
