About Richard A Kerensky

Dr. Kerensky originally joined the Faculty at University of Florida in 1992. He was Professor of Medicine and director of interventional cardiology when he left the University in 2006 to start a C-PORT site in Thomasville, Georgia, to study the feasability of safely performing PCI without on-site cardiac surgery. He returned to the University of Florida in 2018 to rejoin the interventional section. He is active in the catheterization laboratory and co-director of the general fellowship program. He is very involved in conferences and teaching. He has previously been named cardiology teacher of the year by the fellows. He also will help to develop the sports cardiology program. He has a busy interventional and general cardiology clinic.
