Meet Our Doc: Dunbar Ivy, MD, Heart Institute


I’m very dedicated to what I do.
I’ve been involved for almost 25 years in taking care of children
with congenital heart disease, and so it’s my lifelong passion
to keep doing this. I think excellent care, the kind of care
I would want my family to have would be the primary tenet. We
provide high quality care to all patients at all times. I think
one great hope would be that we could find a cure for pulmonary
hypertension or at least very effective therapies. So much has
changed in the last 20 years, but we can give them a lot of
hope to say that, you know, for the vast majority of problems
that we deal with, that their child can have a very good
quality of life and do many of the things that other children
without heart disease do; to see them go to prom or graduate from
high school or graduate from college, those kinds of things.
And so those are exceptionally rewarding moments because then
you really feel like you’ve made a difference.
