R. Preston Perrin, MD, FACC, FSCAI joined the Virginia Hospital Center Physician Group - Cardiology practice in February 2015.

Dr. Preston Perrin was born in Northern Virginia and graduated from the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. He attended Yale University, receiving a degree in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, before attending University of Virginia School of Medicine for his medical doctorate. He completed his internal medicine residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas. During his fellowship at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, he had extensive clinical training in both inpatient and outpatient cardiology, but found that he was most passionate about cardiac catheterization and the minimally invasive assessment of cardiac structure and function. He continued at Maryland for dedicated training in Interventional Cardiology.

Dr. Perrin is experienced in coronary angioplasty and stenting, and in invasive evaluation of coronary disease including intravascular ultrasound and pressure wire evaluation of coronary blood flow. He has a particular clinical interest in cardiac catheterization – with a focus on trans-radial (wrist) access – and also enjoys echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, and preventive cardiology.

Dr. Perrin places a strong emphasis on communication in his approach to patient care. “I see healthcare as a team sport in which the patient and physician work together to achieve better health,” he says. “The better they understand their condition or illness, the better they can communicate needs back to me, and this helps me to optimize their individual treatments.”

In his free time, Dr. Perrin enjoys running, playing drums and piano, and cheering for the New York Giants. Dr. Perrin is married to Maggie Perrin, MD, who is a practicing neurologist at Virginia Hospital Center with Northern Virginia Neurologic Associates. They have two children. Dr. Perrin is excited to have the opportunity to serve the community in which he grew up.

Clinical Interests: Cardiac catheterization, Echocardiography, Nuclear cardiology, Preventive cardiology.
