Care Philosophy

Michigan Heart Group was established in 1991 by David Cragg, M.D., and was soon joined by Steven Almany, M.D. The practice grew steadily, and Steven Ajluni, M.D, William Devlin, M.D, and later Terry Bowers, M.D. joined the practice. In the last several years we have added three more physicians, Brian Williamson, M.D, Ilana Kutinsky, D.O. and Michael Gallagher, M.D.. Both Drs. Kutinsky and Williamson specialize in electrophysiology, while Dr. Gallagher specializes in CT-angiograms. This new addition help Michigan Heart Group become one of the most comprehensive practices in Southeast Michigan encompassing every aspect of cardiovascular health care, this side of surgery. We specialize in clinical, diagnostic, interventional cardiology, vascular medicine and electrophysiology
