Mark Blum, MD, FACC

View Bio

Dr. Mark Blum is a board certified cardiologist and Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. He has practiced in Morristown, New Jersey for the past 27 years and is a full attending physician at Morristown Memorial Hospital, the major heart hospital in the state. He also served as the director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory.

Individual patient care with compassion remains the cornerstone of Dr. Blum’s approach. With ongoing dedication to providing the best medical attention available, his patients benefit from his devotion.
Dr. Blum is also active in clinical research, which has helped provide his patients with access to new medications and technology long before they are available to the general public. Early work in coronary stent research, radiation delivery systems to treat heart disease and electromagnetic cardiac imaging systems have led to major clinical advances in the field of interventional cardiology.

Dr. Blum graduated from the Mt. Sinai Medical School in New York and did his residency and cardiology training at the Mt. Sinai Hospital. Moving to New Jersey in 1988, he underwent further specialty training in interventional cardiology at the Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, before moving to Morristown with the introduction of the heart surgery program in 1989. Dr. Blum is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

Recognition of the above by his peers and patients have led to his being listed in the Castle Connolly Guide to Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area and being cited in the Top Physicians in America by the Consumer’s Research Council of America. Recently he was cited in New Jersey Magazine as a “best doctor” in the state. Download Dr. Blum’s brochure.
