Patient Care Setting



Dr. Teeters joined the Highland Hospital Cardiology Division in 2009 as the Chief of Cardiology. He holds advanced certification in vascular ultrasound and interpretation and has a special interest in peripheral arterial disease. He also specializes in non-invasive Cardiology including echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography and nuclear cardiac imaging. He is board certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease.

Professional Background

Dr. Teeters received his MD degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine and fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease and Preventive Cardiology at the University of Rochester. He joined the faculty in 2009.


Dr. Teeters' research interests focuses on two key areas:

Peripheral arterial disease and the associated cardiovascular risk. I am particularly interested in emerging technologies in vascular ultrasound and translation into diagnosis of vascular disease and risk assessment.

Geriatric cardiovascular disease and treatment. The geriatric population is the fastest growing population in the United States and there is an increasing prevalence of cardiovascular disease amongst these patients. My research interests relate to diagnosing cardiovascular disease in the elder population and proper application of treatment protocols to the geriatric community.
