Don Grandis, MD

555 Mission Bay Blvd South
San Francisco, CA 94158

Donald Grandis, M.D., is Clinical Professor in the Division of Cardiology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He earned his B.A. degree from the University of Virginia and his M.D. degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. He completed his medical internship, residency, and cardiology fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center


Clinical Interests: Dr. Grandis practices general cardiology. He is particularly interested in personalizing care to optimize cardiac disease prevention and management. In addition, Research Interests: Dr. Grandis has interest in the effects of air pollution on cardiovascular health and the use of remote-monitoring and novel devices to improve health outcomes in patients with common heart conditions., he practices non-invasive cardiology which includes transthoracic, stress, transesophageal echocardiography. He also interprets stress tests and nuclear cardiac images.
