Dr. Gideon Paul

Gideon Paul, M.D.

Cardiology

Dr. Gideon Paul a highly experienced cardiologist who specializes in Interventional Cardiology and Cardiac Disease Prevention. He trained in London, UK and undertook a 3-year fellowship in Toronto specialising in the treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD), specifically by performing coronary angiography and angioplasty (stent implantation). Dr. Paul presently serves as a senior interventional cardiologist and head of cardiac disease prevention at the Shamir Medical Center (Assaf HaRofeh Hospital).

In addition to treating patients with CAD, Dr. Paul is passionate with regards to the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD), specifically in patients with a family history CVD and in those with cardiometabolic risk factors including high blood pressure, diabetes, overweight and obesity, high cholesterol and familial hypercholesterolemia. As a highly experienced cardiologist, he also treats patients with symptoms of palpitations, breathlessness and requiring cardiac clearance for surgery. Dr. Paul’s goal is to identify the ‘vulnerable’ cardiac patient before the onset of cardiovascular complications and initiate evidence-based therapies as part of an overall holistic preventative treatment strategy because PREVENTION IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE CURE!
