About Me

I'm Dmitry Familtsev, MD, PhD, a fellowship-trained and board-certified cardiologist who joined Phelps Health in 2019. I am trained to treat adult patients for a variety of cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) diseases, including ischemic heart disease (narrowing of the arteries), heart failure and cardiomyopathies, arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), structural heart disease, cardiometabolic disease (heart disease related to diabetes, obesity and lipid disorders) and peripheral vascular disease (blood vessels and circulation disorder). Additionally, I am certified as a registered physician in vascular interpretation (RPVI).

I was born and raised in Russia, but have called the United States home since 2008. I speak both English and Russian. 

I desire to treat my patients, not just the disease. It is amazing how different people are. The secret is to figure out what your patient needs, not what you think is best for them. I see patients with all types of cardiovascular problems and also enjoy treating other internal medicine problems, when appropriate.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading, traveling, health/fitness, music and raising my kids.

I also offer telehealth visits, which allow patients to visit with me remotely using a smartphone, tablet or computer with an internet connection and audio-video capabilities.
