Andrew Cassar, MD
Dr. Cassar’s curiosity and fascination for cardiology were stimulated as he grew up admiring his late grandfather’s lifelong dedication for his patients and his great enthusiasm to pass on his medical knowledge to his students as professor of medicine.
Dr. Cassar is passionate about providing the best possible evidence-based medicine for his patients while embracing the whole family dynamics of the patient. He has a special interest in keeping up to date with the latest techniques used in the cardiac catheterization lab so as to provide state of the art interventions when a heart procedure is required for his patient.
Dr. Cassar joined Central Arizona Heart Specialists in 2013 after completing his residency and fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He provides complete preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic cardiology services, including cardiac catheterization, coronary stenting, and peripheral vascular interventions, as well as pacemaker placement.
