Dr. Insel's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Insel "Herbert A. Insel, M.D., F.A.C.C., is a leading cardiologist in Midtown, New York City providing the highest-quality care for patients at his Manhattan practice. Dr. Insel offers a comprehensive array of evaluation and treatment options for patients with existing heart-related issues as well as those with increased risk factors for cardiovascular disease. He provides preventive cardiology care, ongoing treatment for high blood pressure and high cholesterol, state-of-the-art assessments like echocardiograms and cardiac stress testing, personalized cardiology consultations, and expanded concierge medicine services for patients with hectic schedules and those seeking more in-depth care options. After earning his medical degree at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, Dr. Insel completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at The Brookdale Hospital Medical Center followed by a fellowship at Lenox Hill Hospital. Certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Diseases by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Insel has been the recipient of numerous awards and has been included repeatedly on the New York Times Magazine's list of "Super Doctors." There are many challenges facing us all today in the realm of health care and concerns about the impersonal delivery methods that will be developing over the years to come. As more and more medical practices in New York City get taken over by larger hospital and delivery systems, Dr. Insel remains dedicated to practicing medicine as an independent doctor. The special and personal relationship he forms with each of his patients is of paramount importance to him and inspires him to continue to strive to put forth every effort to ensure their continued health and well-being. Dr. Insel welcomes new patients and the practice accepts many major medical insurance plans."
