Umama Gorsi, MD, specializes in cardiovascular disease, preventive cardiology, advanced heart failure, transplant cardiology and internal medicine.
Dr. Gorsi received her medical degree from Allama Iqbal Medical College in Pakistan, completed her residency training for internal medicine at Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University, continued her education with a fellowship in preventive cardiology at the Mayo Clinic, followed by a cardiology fellowship at UHS Wilson Medical Center and SUNY Upstate University, and most recently, completed a fellowship in advanced heart failure and transplant at the University of Wisconsin.
“I always knew I wanted to be a cardiologist,” Dr. Gorsi said. “It was during my Cardiology training that I developed an interest in the sickest of the sick patients–those with advanced heart failure, cardiogenic shock and those who needed additional mechanical support and cardiac transplant.”
As a first-year cardiology fellow, Dr. Gorsi established a preventive cardiology clinic at UHS Wilson Medical Center that focused on educating patients on how to lead a healthy lifestyle and minimize cardiac risk factors.
Dr. Gorsi believes that it is important to identify patients with advanced heart failure early and the best way to do that is with a collaborative approach between primary care providers and cardiologists. Dr. Gorsi’s training has taken her all over the world and she has learned a lot from the diverse patient population she has treated, which has helped her to connect with patients from all backgrounds. She enjoys providing holistic care to her patients and her philosophy on patient care is to always put the patients and families first.
Outside of work, Dr. Gorsi enjoys going on walks, exercising, shopping, cooking, making new friends and listening to music.
