Dr. Urman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Urman "Mark K. Urman, MD has been in practice since 1994. He is dedicated to diagnosing, treating, managing and preventing diseases, conditions and disorders exclusively of the heart and cardiovascular system. He is well-recognized for his expertise in clinical, non-invasive and consultative cardiology, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, echocardiography and preventive cardiology. Dr. Urman is the immediate-past Medical Director of the Preventive and Consultative Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute and was the inaugural Medical Director of the Heart Center and a past Clinical Chief of the Division of Cardiology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He is also a Clinical Professor of Medicine at both the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he has been recognized for his outstanding teaching of cardiology trainees. Dr. Urman is one of a few select cardiologists in the US to have earned the esteemed recognition of being named a Fellow of the country's two most prestigious professional cardiovascular organizations. In addition to being a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC) and a Fellow of the American Heart Association (FAHA), honors that attest to his commitment to excellence, innovation and leadership in clinical cardiology, he is also a Fellow of the American Society of Echocardiography (FASE). Dr. Urman is board-certified in cardiovascular diseases and echocardiography. Dr. Urman has the distinction of being recognized by his peers in U.S. News & World Report's Top Doctors and Castle Connolly's Top Doctors™. In addition to being one of America's Best Doctors, he has been honored for his expertise by being named one of "America's Top Physicians" in Cardiology (Consumer's Research Council of America) multiple times, has been listed in The Guide to America's Top Cardiologists every year since 2006 and now is found in The Leading Physicians of The World recognizing Doctors of Excellence. He has been selected a Top Cardiologist in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills by the International Association of Cardiologists. Dr. Urman has been chosen in the last seven consecutive Southern California Super Doctors® editions of Los Angeles Magazine (most recently in the January 2015 issue). These top doctors in Los Angeles were selected via independent research and polling of their peers and Dr. Urman is humbled that he has been repeatedly recognized as one of the best cardiologists in Los Angeles. He also has been named as an "Industry Favorite" on the Hollywood's Top Doctors list in the Hollywood Reporter. While he is proud of his recognition as a top cardiologist, he especially takes pride in being able to connect with his patients. As a testament to this, he was awarded the Ben Newman, MD Award at Cedars-Sinai in recognition for compassion and empathy toward his patients. Dr. Urman has written many articles in peer-reviewed medical publications, has presented his research internationally and has lectured extensively on hyperlipidemia, hypertension, heart failure and the pharmacological and lifestyle management of cardiovascular disease. He has traveled internationally to consult on patients and has patients who come from as far as Asia and the Middle East to seek his care. Dr. Urman has appeared on, quoted by and been sought after by local and national news, web and television programs including CNN, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, US News & World Report, CBS Radio, CBS 2 News, ABC 7 News, The Doctors, Doctor 90210, Dr. Oz on Fox, WebMD, Health Day, Medscape, Yahoo News, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Men's Journal. Dr. Urman received his bachelor's and medical degrees from Northwestern University where he was enrolled in the Honors Program. A native Angelino (he was born at the old Cedars of Lebanon hospital), he was glad to return home to complete his internal medicine internship and residency at Cedars-Sinai and his cardiology fellowship at the UCLA-West Los Angeles Veteran's Administration Medical Center.
