As general cardiologists, the Park Cities Clinical Center physicians have broad expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, including angina, arrhythmias, valve diseases, coronary artery disease, heart failure, high blood pressure, and cholesterol-related diseases.

Thomas Andrews, M.D., a Clinical Associate Professor in UT Southwestern's Division of Cardiology, leads the Cardiology team at the Clinical Center – Park Cities and sees patients with various types of general cardiology issues. He is also a specialist in the relatively new subspecialty of onco-cardiology and can treat cancer patients who have cardiovascular problems caused by chemotherapy and radiation.

James Daniels, M.D., Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Cardiology, was a Fellow in UT Southwestern's Cardiology Program, specializing in Electrophysiology, before joining the Cardiology faculty. As an electrophysiologist, Dr. Daniels evaluates and treats patients with heart arrhythmias, fibrillation, palpitations, fainting, and such diseases as Bradycardia, Tachycardia, Long QT Syndrome, and Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome.

Katy Lonergan, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine in the Cardiology Division. Her approach to heart care emphasizes early screening for five major risk factors for disease – high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, smoking, and a family history of heart disease. Because heart disease is the leading cause of death among American women, she is particularly interested in women’s cardiac health.

John Rutherford, M.D., Vice President for Clinical Operations, Professor of Internal Medicine, and a cardiologist for more than 40 years is an expert on the surgical and medical management of coronary artery disease and the benefits of lowering cholesterol after a heart attack.
