    Biography

    Dr. Istfan earned medical degrees from West Virginia State College in Institute, W. Va., and Marshall University in Huntington, W. Va. He completed his internship, residency and fellowship at Marshall University Affiliated Hospitals.

    He takes pride in using his clinical expertise to improve quality of life and longevity for patients. He also takes seriously his responsibility to educate patients about how to live healthier lives. He believes that what a patient does at home is almost as important as the work a surgeon does to repair heart damage. By quitting smoking, eating well, exercising regularly and keeping diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure in check, patients can improve their heart health and live longer and healthier lives.
