Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute team grows to 26 cardiovascular specialists, welcomes Dr. David Chambers to its Soldotna office
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA – The Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute, the leading provider of cardiovascular care in Alaska, recently expanded its team to 26 cardiovascular specialists with the addition of David Chambers, M.D., to its Soldotna office. Dr. Chambers joins the Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute team from Tennessee with over 30 years of experience practicing cardiology and internal medicine.
Dr. Chambers received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Austin Peay State University in 1978 and went on to earn his doctorate in physiology as well as his doctor of medicine from the University of South Alabama shortly after. Dr. Chambers then completed his internship, internal medicine residency and cardiology fellowship, respectively, at Duke University Medical Center. Afterward, he worked as a staff cardiologist at Horizon Medical Center and later as an assistant professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Tennessee before briefly relocating to Anchorage in 2000 to work with the Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute out of its main office. Since then, Dr. Chambers has been working in primary care at Dickson Medical Associates in Tennessee. He is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease as well as a fellow in the American College of Cardiology.
“My wife and I are thrilled to be returning to Alaska, where I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve the Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute’s patients for a second time,” said Dr. Chambers. “I’m looking forward to sharing my unique experiences with the team in Soldotna as it continues to grow and deliver the most advanced cardiovascular service to our patients across the state.”
With the addition of Dr. Chambers, who will be practicing in the clinic’s growing Soldotna office, the Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute expands to a team of 26 specialty cardiologists. The Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute operates six locations across the state to service the cardiovascular needs of all Alaskans.
“Dr. Chambers exemplifies the top-level cardiovascular specialists we aim to build our team with and shares our commitment to providing exceptional patient care,” said Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute CEO Kelly Hite McGee. “As we continue to expand our reach to an even greater number of Alaskans on the Kenai Peninsula and across the state, we’re proud to provide them access to the unmatched cardiovascular care they deserve.”
