Dr. Jeffrey Marshall, an interventional cardiologist with The Heart Center of Northeast Georgia Medical Center and medical director of the Cardiac Catheterization Labs at the hospital, has been named a “Master Interventionalist.”
Marshall earned the honor from the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, the national professional society for adult and pediatric invasive/interventional cardiologists. The recognition is reserved for cardiologists who have been society members for more than 10 years and demonstrated a career of excellence in patient care, teaching, research and innovation.
Marshall led the creation of the angioplasty program at NGMC and was a driving force in developing a regional emergency heart attack response program called Northeast Georgia Regional STEMI System, which has received national recognition for its life-saving work.
Nationally, more than 8,000 interventionalists and only 35 members have achieved this award. Also, out of eight members recognized as Master Interventionalists for 2016, Marshall was the only cardiologist in Georgia to receive the title. He is a former president of SCAI and received its Mason F. Stones Jr. Distinguished Service Award in 2008.
