The American Health Council has welcomed Dr. Vivek Kumar onto the Board of Physicians for his dedication to the healthcare sector. Dr. Kumar has been committed to the practicing of Cardiology for the past 14 years and is currently the owner of Heart Care Consultants.
Dr. Kumar successfully graduated from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Medical School with a DO in Osteopathic Medicine / Interventional Cardiology in 1997. He also had a Fellowship at two universities. Allegheny General Hospital-Western Pennsylvania Hospital is where he had a Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology and he had a Fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. These areas of study are the base for his knowledge and understanding that enabled him to become a specialist within his field.
Dr. Kumar was choosing between orthopedic surgery and cardiology but decided to pursue Cardiology as a subspecialty of internal medicine as a result of his father’s illness. He attributes his success to the support of his family as well as being able to maintain a very hands-on, personal approach.
Having been based in Florida for the last two years, Dr. Kumar currently works at and owns the Heart Care Consultants. The organization is a full-service cardiovascular practice serving both Sarasota and Bradenton.

On a daily basis, Dr. Kumar’s responsibilities include practice management and administration as well as patient care. His hard work has been acknowledged as in 2018, he was selected by his peers to The Best Doctors of Sarasota. The annual event celebrated the top doctors and dentists in the community as ranked by Castle Connolly Medical. Dr. Kumar also conducts lectures to educate the future generation of doctors.
