Dr. Andrew Waxman attended Cornell University, where he majored in policy analysis and management and found his calling to veterinary medicine after graduating. He received his DVM from Iowa State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine (2007). Dr. Waxman then returned to Cornell University and completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship, and then continued on to complete a residency in cardiology. Dr. Waxman became a board certified cardiologist in 2011.
Dr. Waxman particularly enjoys the challenges of diagnosing and treating structural heart disease (heart muscle or valves), irregular heart rhythms, and congenital heart disease. He has exceptional skill in performing minimally invasive cardiac procedures such as pacemaker implantation or opening narrowed heart valves. While cats and dogs are the norm, he has been known to treat an occasional goat, rabbit, hedgehog, or ferret when one demands his expertise. When not practicing, Andrew enjoys spending time with his wife and young daughter.
