NYCVA's Dr. Han Hwang and Joyce Yeung - the newest cardiac experts to join the team of heart specialists.

Our greatest priority is to provide the highest quality care through dedication...

Joyce Yeung, who is fluent in Chinese, is Board Certified in Cardiac Vascular Nursing and Certified in Adult Critical Care and Cardiac Surgery Subspecialty. She received her Master of Science degree in Adult Nurse Practitioner from Hunger College. She also has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, and a degree in Health Information Management. Her professional career has given her extensive experience in adult critical care, emergency medicine, and cardiology — both in private practice and in some of New York’s leading hospitals.

Dr. Han Hwang, fluent in Korean, earned her Medical Degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook School of Medicine. She is highly recognized and extensively accredited. She holds four diplomate certificates from accreditation organizations in Internal Medicine, Nuclear Cardiology, Echocardiography, and Vascular Interpretation. She has conducted extensive research in congestive heart failure, peripheral artery disease, coronary artery disease, and other areas. She has also donated numerous hours as a volunteer for multiple charitable organizations in the U.S. and needy countries around the world.

Dr. Han Hwang and Ms. Yeung are excited to be part of NYCVA’s team of cardiac specialists, and are especially committed to helping women in New York improve their cardiac health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among American women, responsible for an estimated half a million deaths per year.

“Our entire staff here at New York Cardiovascular Associates is extremely pleased to have Dr. Han Hwang and Ms. Yeung join our organization,” said Dennis Gifford, FACHE, Practice Administrator at NYCVA since 2004. “We know we have two of the best cardiac care providers in their fields out there practicing today, and we just couldn’t be happier to have them serving with us, and serving our patients.”

NYCVA has become a premier practice in the management of cardiology, vascular disease, pulmonary disease, sleep disorders and primary care medicine.

This is evidenced by receiving multiple national accreditations for our facility and our doctors have been recognized as being among the top in their fields. In addition, our nuclear and ultrasound technicians are certified and recognized as leaders in their fields.

NYCVA has made a commitment to excellence in the treatment of patients. It is our mission to provide expertise in a professional, compassionate and respectful manner. We want the patient to know that their care was delivered at the highest professional level combined with the type of “bedside manner” that would gain and retain their trust. It is our privilege to care for our patients and we will continue to deliver the best treatment possible.
