About David Engel

Dr. Engel is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University and Attending Physician at Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital. He received his undergraduate degree from Yale University and medical degree from Cornell University Medical College. He completed his post-graduate cardiology fellowship training at Columbia University Medical Center with advanced fellowship training in echocardiography.

Dr. Engel is a clinical noninvasive cardiologist with expertise in preventative cardiology, valvular and coronary heart disease, arrhythmic disorders and cardiomyopathies. He currently serves as the Director of Echocardiography at the ColumbiaDoctors midtown facility.

Dr. Engel has a special area of expertise in Sports Cardiology and in the cardiovascular assessment of athletes. He has had the unique opportunity to work with the National Basketball Association (NBA) since 2014 to help provide oversight of player cardiac health and safety. He has conducted a league-wide echocardiographic analysis of parameters of cardiac structure and function that now serves as the guide and reference for NBA team physicians to monitor their players and to evaluate new players entering the league. On the basis of this ongoing work with the NBA, he has published the only large-scale echocardiographic study to date characterizing the Athlete’s Heart in elite American athletes. Dr. Engel has gained national recognition in the field of Sports Cardiology and performs consultations for pre-participation cardiovascular exams and assessments, the evaluation of cardiovascular symptoms in athletes and the management of existing cardiac conditions in the competitive athlete as an integral component of his practice.
