Our Staff

At Vessel Health, we know that delivering comprehensive cardiovascular wellness starts with people. We assembled a team dedicated to taking care of clients as unique individuals with specialized needs.


HARVEY J. WHITE, MD, FACC: Founder and Executive Director

For the past 35 years, Dr. White has dedicated himself to direct patient care, clinical research initiatives, and leadership activities designed to improve the cardiovascular health care system. Dr. White considers Vessel Health to be the culmination of a career in cardiac medicine. Grounded in extensive training and experience in interventional cardiology (the technique of coronary angioplasty and stent placement), Dr. White has concluded that we, as individuals and as a society, need to enhance our focus on prevention and a proactive approach to circulation and personal wellness. Vessel Health is an expression of that philosophy.
