Dr. Abhishek Singh, board-certified in internal medicine, cardiology and advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology, has been named the medical director of the Heart Success Program at Atlantic Health System, the group announced Wednesday.
The fellowship-trained Singh is highly experienced in managing advanced heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. He joins Atlantic Health System from St. Luke’s University Hospital in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, where he has served as an attending physician in the hospitals’ advanced heart failure and pulmonary hypertension programs since 2016.
Singh received a bachelor’s degrees in biology and chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a medical degree from Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, where he was named Most Outstanding M.D./Ph.D. student.
“I am honored to join the exemplary cardiovascular medicine team at Atlantic Health System and thrilled to be based at the top-ranked Morristown Medical Center,” Singh said. “I am especially excited to work with the advanced practice nurses and the rest of the exceptional Heart Success team.”
Morristown Medical Center, the hub of heart care at Atlantic Health System, is one of the Top 40 programs in the country for Cardiology & Cardiac Surgery (U.S. News & World Report) and one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Care (Healthgrades).
Singh, saying he is driven by clinical excellence, will use evidence-based medicine to co-manage advanced and complicated heart failure and pulmonary hypertension patients. In collaboration with a multidisciplinary team that includes physicians, APNs and nurses, he cares for patients with hard-to-control heart conditions by using electrophysiologic and hemodynamic support devices.
Singh utilizes exercise right heart catheterization to help determine the various contributors to patients’ shortness of breath, or dyspnea. In addition, he evaluates and manages pre- and post-heart transplant patients.
After earning his medical degree from Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Singh pursued his internship and residency at the University of California, San Francisco. He remained there for his cardiology fellowship in the UCSF Molecular Medicine Program.
He returned to the East Coast to pursue a second fellowship in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology at Temple University Hospital.
