Jeremy Bock, MD, FACC has recently joined the expanding Cardiology practice. A Washington, DC native who completed his medical training at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Dr. Bock is thrilled to move back to the area with his family. He is board certified in interventional cardiology, cardiovascular disease, and internal medicine. As an interventional cardiologist, Dr. Bock specializes in the treatment of heart attacks and angina with a focus on performing cardiac catheterization through the radial artery of the wrist. Benefits of this approach include faster recovery time, lower risk of complications and the ability to sit up immediately instead of having to lie flat for several hours. Dr. Bock enjoys taking the time to fully address patient concerns and questions. “The most important information leading to a diagnosis often comes from what the patient tells me, not the results of labs and tests. I believe in taking the time to listen to my patients and fully explain their issues.”
