She received her specialty training as a fellow in clinical cardiology and interventional cardiology at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospitals and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, in New York.

Prior to her 2023 appointment to the Cleveland Clinic medical staff, Dr. Tamis-Holland was Professor of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a senior attending physician in the Division of Cardiology at Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital. She served as Program Director for the Cardiology Fellowship Program and Associate Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.

Research, Publications and Speaking: Dr. Tamis-Holland has been involved in clinical cardiology research for over 25 years. Dr Tamis-Holland’s clinical and research interests focus on the treatment of patients with heart attacks, and on the management of patients with stable coronary artery disease who may be in need of coronary artery stenting. She has engaged in groundbreaking research related to improving cardiovascular outcomes for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with certain types of complex heart attacks and in patients with chronic coronary artery disease. Dr. Tamis-Holland has coauthored more than 100 peer-reviewed medical articles, book chapters, and medical editorials, published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals, including pioneering papers related to sex differences in cardiovascular outcomes and PCI outcomes and in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction and multi-vessel disease.

About Dr. Tamis-Holland: Given her extensive clinical experience coupled with her clinical research and her leadership work in the cardiology societies, Dr Tamis-Holland is in a unique position of providing expert consultative care across the spectrum of diseases of the coronary arteries.

“In the office, I love working with patients and getting to know them and their families. Treating someone who needs help is more than knowing statistical data and dispensing medication. It’s helping them to understand the whole of their condition and to instill in them, and their families, a knowledge about their condition so that they can work with me to improve their heart health. Together, we are partners in managing their care.”

“In the catheterization laboratory, nothing is more gratifying than restoring blood flow in the heart of a patient who is critically ill due to a blocked artery. One minute they are gravely ill, the next they are stable and feeling much better. I believe I truly make a difference in patient’s lives and the lives of their loved ones. And I continue to work with these patients after they go home to help them prevent another heart attack and live normal lives. To me, caring for patients is a lifelong commitment. I cherish all the patients I have cared for in my career.”

Leisure Activities: Outside of work, Dr. Tamis-Holland enjoys spending time with her children and husband and staying in close touch with her sisters, nieces and nephews. She also enjoys baking, cake decorating, knitting, and hiking. Whenever possible she loves to travel and explore new regions.
