Richard Kutnick, MD, is a member of Summit Medical Group's Cardiology team. Dr. Kutnick has practiced non-invasive cardiology for over 30 years and has been fortunate during that time to witness and participate in many great advances in the treatment of cardiac disease. Dr. Kutnick has a genuine interest in people and truly enjoys getting to know his patients. “My interest lies in my patients - getting to know them and helping them as much as I can,” says Dr. Kutnick. “When you’re visiting the doctor for a heart-related issue, you tend to carry a lot of stress and worry, and that’s not good for the heart. As their physician, my goal is to put them at ease, educate them, and ultimately provide the best individualized care.”
Prior to joining Summit Medical Group, Dr. Kutnick worked for many years in the echocardiography lab of a busy hospital where he accumulated significant experience in the performance and interpretation of trans-thoracic and trans-esophageal echo’s (TEE).
Outside of the field of medicine, Dr. Kutnick enjoys down time with family and friends.
