Patient Care Location



After graduating from medical school at the University of Debrecen in Hungary, Dr. Feher completed his PhD training at his medical school institution studying how coronary microvessels behave in obesity and diabetes mellitus. After finishing his internal medicine residency at Cornell University, prior to starting his cardiology fellowship, he spent two years at the Yale Translational Research Imaging Center (Y-TRIC) to learn multimodality imaging techniques used for the investigation of the coronary microcirculation. He is the recipient of American Physiological Society Cardiovascular Section Research Recognition Award, the Japanese Society for Microcirculation Young Investigator Award and the Hal O'Brien Rising Star Award. His most recent work has been focusing on studying the interaction between autoimmunity and the microcirculation by using molecular imaging and multimodality imaging techniques. Dr. Feher hopes that by studying this interaction, he will be able to discover better tools for the in vivo assessment of coronary microvascular disease.
