Dr. Ariel Soffer, M.D., FACC – Board Certified in Cardiovascular Disease
Dr. Soffer graduated with distinction from medical school at the University of Miami, after which he was promptly accepted to the prestigious Cedars Sinai/UCLA residency program in Beverly Hills, California- arguably the world’s top cardiology program. He maintains Board Certifications and Re-Certifications in Internal Medicine and in Cardiovascular Disease, and is a Fellow in the American College of Cardiology since 1998. He is also a Licensed in Nuclear Cardiology, one of only a few cardiologists to achieve this status in Florida.
Early in his career, Dr. Soffer gained the trust and respect of his peers and superiors, and was named the Chief of Medicine of Hollywood Medical Center. He soon went on to become the Chief of Cardiology for Jackson North Medical Center, one of the world’s largest academically affiliated hospital systems, Jackson Health. Dr. Soffer has served as official doctor and chief medical physician and cardiologist for the National Hockey League’s Florida Panthers.
Dr. Soffer wrote and published a book on Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome that is currently available on Amazon, and is a regular contributor to the Life Extension Foundation’s internationally regarded alternative treatment publication. His work on Enhanced External Counter Pulsation also received national attention as an FDA and Medicare approved alternative to angioplasty or bypass surgery.
Over the last 10 years he has dedicated much of his practice to perfecting the treatment of venous circulation and varicose veins in particular. He raised the awareness of cardiologists about this neglected circulatory issue and published two landmark articles in peer reviewed journals describing the importance of venous issues. Through his research in the field and his years of experience, he became one of the first cardiologists to become proficient in the newest treatment of varicose veins, and currently heads a prestigious venous training program for physicians and surgeons. He is a sought after lecturer for these disorders and routinely chairs international symposia.
