The latest addition to the group is a well-established cardiology practice located in Briarcliff Manor. On July 1, the practice's three long-tenured Phelps physicians became employees of Phelps Medical Associates. Cardiologists Arthur Fass, MD, Franklin Zimmerman, MD, and Dina Katz, MD, are continuing to see patients at their office location on North State Road, which is now known as Phelps Cardiology in Briarcliff. Other members of the practice are nurse practitioners Holly McNamara, ANP, and Deborah Okoniewski, FNP. A complete range of cardiovascular diagnostic testing is available on-site. The physicians practice general cardiology in the office and provide specialty consultations in the hospital. This well-established practice continues to grow and accept new patients.

Dr. Fass is director of Phelps' Department of Medicine, and Dr. Zimmerman is director of the critical care unit and president of the hospital medical staff. Dr. Katz, who is trained in invasive and nuclear cardiology, offers unique skills to her patients in Briarcliff and at the hospital. The physicians all share scholarly interests including nationally recognized research, teaching and publishing.
