The University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) is proud to welcome three new physicians: Dr. Andres Klein, Dr. Mariana Lamacié and Dr. Steven Promislow.

Dr. Andres Klein is a Cardiologist and a Cardiac Electrophysiologist in the Division of Cardiology. Dr. Klein completed his studies in undergraduate medical education at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He began his internal medicine and cardiology training in 2008 at Buenos Aires Cardiovascular Institute, including a two-year program in arrhythmias and electrophysiology. In 2014, he moved to Canada to complete a 2.5-year training as electrophysiology fellow at Sherbrooke University. His research interests lie in complex arrhythmia ablation and cardiovascular electronic devices.

Dr. Mariana Lamacié is a Cardiologist in the Division of Cardiology. She received her medical degree at the University of Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 2006. After training in cardiology at the Hospital do Coração (Sao Paulo, Brazil) Dr. Lamacié completed a clinical fellowship in Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance in 2014. In 2015 she moved to Canada to pursue a research fellowship in Cardiac MRI followed by a clinical fellowship in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation at the University of Toronto where she also served as chief fellow. Her clinical research interests lie in heart failure/transplant and cardiac imaging particularly in magnetic resonance imaging, strain analysis and tissue characterization.  

Dr. Steven Promislow is a Cardiologist in the Division of Cardiology. Dr. Promislow graduated from medical school at the University of Manitoba in 2010, and completed his residency training in internal medicine at the same university in 2013. He subsequently completed his cardiology residency in 2016 at UOHI, acting as Chief Resident in 2015-2016, followed by clinical/research fellowships in both adult echocardiography and cardiac CT/nuclear cardiology. His academic interests lie in multimodality cardiac imaging and their application in clinical practice.

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute has flourished into one of Canada’s most distinguished heart health centres for the unparalleled care it provides to its patients, a world-renowned research Institute that brings science from bench to bedside, and the country’s main influencer when it comes to preventing heart disease. Its promise remains the very pillar on which it was built: Always putting patients first.
