Led by world renowned Nuclear Cardiologist Jeffrey Leppo, MD, Berkshire Health Systems’ team of cardiologists brings specialties that advance the overall goal of providing a comprehensive program of cardiac care right here in our own community.
At the heart of Dr. Leppo's vision was the belief that outstanding cardiologists would also be inspired by the challenge of building the region's premier cardiology service.
"I knew that if we fundamentally did a good job, the right physicians would follow," he says. “And they did. At every step of the way, we paid particular attention to recruiting physicians who were very patient-focused; whose only goal was to improve the level of service and care."
