A lot of heart goes behind the success of Naples Heart Rhythm Specialists (NHRS). Have you seen the team of physicians they have on-site? Today, we took a deeper dive into Dr. Louis Wasserman, a quadruple board-certified, non-invasive cardiologist who spent most of his professional career in Syracuse, New York until he relocated to Naples, Florida to establish a full-service outpatient nuclear cardiology laboratory alongside Dr. Ryan Houk. Here’s a timeline of Dr. Wasserman’s successes.

When It All Began

Dr. Wasserman attended New York University as an undergraduate and graduated from Georgetown University for his Medical School. It wasn’t until his fourth year of medical school that he realized his true interest in matters of the heart through cardiology. His mentors at that level of training were Dr. Proctor Harvey and Dr. James Ronan, both outstanding clinical cardiologists.

Not until being under the direction and supervision of Dr. Ami Iskandrian, the current Editor of the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology, for a cardiology research project, did Dr. Wasserman become interested in nuclear cardiology. Dr. Wasserman went on to do his Internal Medicine training at the Brown University Medical School Internal Medicine program and completed it at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He then accepted a cardiology fellowship at The Likoff Cardiovascular Institute-Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Personal Successes

Dr. Wasserman has been married for 49 years to his wife Tikva. In the summer of 1971, Dr. Wasserman was selected to go to Israel to observe and learn the practice of medicine in Israel. While in the program, he met his wife who has helped him raise their four sons who have each become successful in their respective professions, stayed in close proximity to their Jewish identities and who have brought them their greatest blessings, 10 grandchildren soon to be 11).

His four sons include Dr. Daniel Wasserman who is a Dermatologist in Naples, Ronald who is the VP of Signature Bank, NYC, Michael who heads the Cloud Computing Division of Oracle, and Ariel who is a Credit Analyst for Bank of the West with plans for merging with the Bank of Montreal on the first of 2023.
