Dear Selected Candidate,
I am Dr. Greenfield is a co-founder of California Heart Associates in Orange County, California. Iam a board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, and Clinical Lipidology. I received my B.A. from City University of New York, Brooklyn College, and my M.D. from the State University of New York- Downstate Medical Center. After My Residency and Fellowship, I went on to accept an academic position at UC-Irvine Medical Center as full-time faculty before co- founding California Heart Associates in 1979. After twenty-one years, I accepted a full-time faculty position in the Division of Cardiology and as Director of the Cardiology Clinics at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland where I stayed for three years before returning to
California Heart Associates. I continue teaching and I am a national and regional speaker for several pharmaceutical companies, and can periodically be heard on KFI-AM. My research includes the fields of lipidology, acute coronary syndrome, and risk factor modification. I am currently on the Board of Directors of the Pacific Chapter of the National Lipid Association. As California Heart Associates completes its thirtieth year, I remain full-time in my busy practice of cardiovascular diagnosis, treatment, cholesterol management, and prevention and cannot handle most of my bookings and personal errands perfectly anymore.
