Biography

Dr. Nagy joined the faculty of the George Washington University in 2013. He is board-certified in internal medicine, pediatrics, adult cardiovascular disease, pediatric cardiology, and interventional cardiology. Dr. Nagy attended medical school at the Friedrich-Alexander University School of Medicine Erlangen in Germany. Upon completion of a combined residency at Yale University and Bridgeport Hospital in internal medicine and pediatrics, where he also served as chief resident, he was the first fellow to complete dual training in adult and pediatric cardiology at Johns Hopkins University. He then completed a two-year fellowship in interventional cardiology at Toronto General Hospital, specializing in adult congenital, structural, and coronary interventions. He later finished a year of interventional cardiology training at Tufts Medical Center with a special focus on structural interventions and transcatheter aortic valve replacement. As a cardiology attending he enjoys educating and precepting medical students, residents, and fellows.

Dr. Nagy is a published author with a particular interest in structural heart interventions. His love for cardiology and vast training leaves him open to many different treating modalities. Dr. Nagy is interested in building long-lasting relationships with his patients and hopes to foster clear communication and trust. Dr. Nagy believes in lifelong learning and is a member of multiple cardiovascular societies.
