Dr. Gustavo Morales, MD
I was born and raised in Ecuador, South America, from a family with significant tradition of physicians. My father is a Cardiologist in Ecuador and his ethics and morals deeply impacted the way I see my patients. After completing medical school in the Catholic University of Guayaquil, Ecuador I came to the United Stated to start and complete internal medicine residence at the University of Miami, Florida. After finishing residency I followed my professional passion and continued my education to become a cardiologist at the same institution. Early in my Cardiology fellowship I felt strongly inclined towards the heart rhythm system and problems. With mentors and role models such as Dr. Agustin Castellanos y decided to pursue the specialty of Cardiac Electrophysiology, which I completed with 2 years of training in 2009. Following my teaching passion I left Miami after completing training to become part of the Cardiovascular Disease Facutly at Gill Heart Institute at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. During my tenure I was able to start the Electrophysiology Fellows Training Program at UK, for which I was the Director for 4 years. After 8 years of Academic Medicine I decided to joint the Alabama Cardiovascular Group, a private cardiovascular group with excellent reputation, exceptional physicians and human beings dedicated not only to provide the best, state of the art patient care but also to contribute to scientific development.
