Biography - Antonio A. Giaimo, MD

Antonio Giaimo, MD, is a general cardiologist who evaluates and treats a wide range of cardiac conditions. He has special training in caring for patients with high cholesterol and hypertension, including resistant hypertension (persistently elevated blood pressure despite three or more medications), secondary forms of hypertension, and labile blood pressure disorders such as orthostatic hypotension.

“My interest in hypertension and lipid disorders comes from a similar place,” Dr. Giaimo says. Both are primary conditions in the development of most heart disease in the United States, he says. The two conditions can be outright inherited and or have an inherited component contributing to the disease, he adds. “And both can be effectively prevented and/or treated so that symptomatic heart disease never develops.”

The best part of this work is meeting patients in a medical office setting where he can get to know them and discuss ways they can enjoy their life free of symptomatic heart disease long before it becomes serious enough to require hospitalization. “I started my training as a primary care physician because I felt strongly that the most important medicine happens outside the hospital,” he says. “I soon realized that the vast majority of my patients had poorly controlled risk factors for developing such problems as hypertension, diabetes, and high cholesterol. I became a cardiologist so I could focus on giving those conditions the attention they deserve.”

In addition to caring for patients, Dr. Giaimo is an assistant professor of cardiovascular medicine at Yale School of Medicine with research interests in the improvement of access to care and the appropriate treatment of patients with severely elevated blood pressures who seek care in the emergency department.
