Ryan Lahey, MD, PhD

Cardiology

Practices In: Joliet, New Lenox
Patients Seen: Adults

I approach every patient-doc­tor rela­tion­ship as a part­ner­ship built on a foun­da­tion of mutu­al respect and under­stand­ing. My job as your car­di­ol­o­gist is not to tell you what to do but rather to pro­vide you with the most up-to-date and evi­dence-based rec­om­men­da­tions that I can, and togeth­er we will for­mu­late a treat­ment plan that is con­sis­tent with your pref­er­ences and goals.

Clinical Interests

I have con­duct­ed exten­sive research look­ing into the ways in which ener­gy metab­o­lism changes in heart fail­ure. I have a spe­cif­ic inter­est in pre­ven­tion and the ways in which lifestyle (body weight, diet, exer­cise) con­tributes to car­dio­vas­cu­lar risk over the course of a per­son­’s life.

Personal Interests

Run­ning, ski­ing, cook­ing, lis­ten­ing to music, traveling.
