Dr. Dawley is a board-certified cardiologist who specializes in general cardiology, interventional cardiology, and echocardiography. He holds a medical degree from Stanford University and completed an internship, residency, and fellowship at Brigham Women's Hospital. During the second year of Dr. Dawley’s residency, his father died of a heart attack, which led to him choosing cardiology as a specialty. With more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Dawley feels he has been able to grow up with the practice of cardiology, having a front row seat to the medical and technical advances in this field of care.

Primary prevention is one of Dr. Dawley’s passions. That’s all about helping patients stay free from cardiovascular disease by treating risk factors like hypertension, high cholesterol and promoting a healthy diet and exercise. This approach is also an important way Dr. Dawley treats patients who have been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. Dr. Dawley has written several medical articles and provided research on numerous clinical trials. In his spare time, he enjoys playing the clarinet, cooking, golf and olive oil production.

    Dr. Dawley took time to ask my father questions about his daily routine, provided easy to understand suggestions and was encouraging and conversational, which given my father's isolation was very meaningful to him and left him feeling very happy with the experience.
