Patient Experience with Dr. Pianko
Get to know Cardiologist Dr. Leonard J. Pianko, who serves patients in Aventura, Florida.
Dr. Pianko is a sought-out cardiologist with special expertise in cardiovascular disease, preventive cardiology, and non-invasive treatment options, including echocardiogram and nuclear stress testing. He is the Founder of Aventura Cardiovascular Center in Florida.
There, he and his dedicated staff offer cutting-edge preventative, emergent, and rehabilitative cardiovascular care, from the most straightforward to the most complex health challenges, with a strong focus on personalized and holistic treatment.
Ensuring patients’ continued health and wellness, Dr. Pianko offers the individual attention expected of primary care physicians and the expertise of a seasoned cardiologist. With a listening ear and the most advanced medical technology, his practice focuses on four main aspects of holistic and complete patient care: listen to the patient; be available to the patient; communicate with and involve family in treatment decision-making; and coordinate complete care of the patient by enlisting specialized physicians and support staff, and utilizing advanced medical technology.
Through this approach, Dr. Pianko handles medical challenges immediately and effectively, thereby avoiding the potentially harmful mistakes that commonly occur when patients do not have a primary care physician who knows them well. This approach also enables him to provide a high level of preventative care, thereby resolving potential medical issues before they become serious.
The doctor’s affiliation with Aventura Hospital Medical Center and his many years in the business have allowed him to develop professional relationships with excellent physicians, with whom Dr. Pianko consults when needed. By creating a network of physicians who work together in the patient’s best interests, he is able to provide precise and effective treatment regardless of the varied and individual needs of his patients. Furthermore, if a patient requires specialized care, he is equipped to coordinate care with renowned medical specialists in a number of fields.
Considered to be an old-time family doctor, Dr. Pianko makes himself available to his patients and their families, even giving out his cell phone to maximize availability. He is available at every stage of care, from the office to the hospital, from assisted living to rehabilitation; he is there for every patient at every step. This is especially important in the care of elderly patients whose families may live far away – a doctor who advocates for the patient and communicates with family even from long distances can be the difference between excellent or simply adequate health care.
A native of New York, Dr. Pianko was born in the Bronx, and earned an undergraduate degree from Yeshiva University in New York. He then went on to receive his medical education at the top-ranked Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and completed his training at the prestigious Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
A firm believer that the practice of medicine is both a science and an art, Dr. Pianko is board-certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease by the American Board of Internal Medicine, a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC).
Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with the disorders of the heart, as well as the circulatory system. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and electrophysiology. Cardiologists are doctors who diagnose, assess, and treat patients with diseases and defects of the heart and blood vessels (the cardiovascular system).
Recognized as “Top Doctor” by Castle Connolly, Dr. Pianko is proud to call himself a “patient advocate,” working together with his patients in order to educate on best practices and tailored treatment options from lifestyle and preventive to diagnostic and clinical. Central to his practice is an unwavering commitment to compassionate and quality care, supporting patients and their families throughout their medical decision-making process.
Among his numerous accolades include Patients’ Choice Award (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), Top 10 Doctor – City (2014), Patients’ Choice 5th Anniversary Award (2017, 2018, 2020), Compassionate Doctor Award – 5 Year Honoree (2017, 2018, 2020), and On-Time Doctor Award (2018).
