Our Physicians

Our cardiologists are defining the cutting edge in cardiovascular medicine.

At The Stern Cardiovascular Foundation, we provide a team approach to preventative care, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease which involves physicians certified in cardiovascular medicine, nurse practitioners who hold advanced degrees in acute care nursing, registered nurses specially trained in cardiology, medical assistants specially trained to assist our physicians, and registered diagnostic technicians and certified laboratory technicians to administer the sophisticated testing required to diagnose the complexities of cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Richard Gordon has devoted the last five years of his practice to providing cardiac care for patients in the surrounding areas of Memphis. He travels on a daily basis to areas such as Ripley, Munford, Millington, Somerville and Oakland. He has worked hard to build a rapport with the physicians and nurse practitioners in these areas to provide the best possible patient care in these communities. Stern Cardiovascular Center and Dr. Richard Gordon are particularly excited to be opening a testing center in Munford that offers state of the art nuclear testing and echocardiography at an outreach facility. “I am excited to join one of the premier groups in Memphis so together we can serve not only the residents of Memphis but  those in the surrounding areas.”

Dr. Infeld specializes in non-invasive imaging of the heart, congestive heart failure, and congenital heart disease. He has received advanced training in echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, and congenital heart defects.

Dr. Johnson is a cardiac electro physiologist who specializes in the electrical system of the heart including treatment for irregular, rapid, or life-threatening rapid heart rhythms.

With an extensive background in internal medicine  and cardiology, Dr. Klemis went on to pursue additional training in vascular medicine and learned innovative less invasive treatments for vascular disease at the prestigious Lenox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute of New York, one of the busiest centers in the world for vascular disease and the leading center for carotid artery stenting in the US. He worked alongside pioneers in the field of vascular intervention and became the first midsouth physician to become board certified in both vascular medicine and endovascular intervention, as recognized by the American Board of Vascular Medicine. He recognizes the systemic nature of vascular disease and believes a comprehensive evaluation should include attention to all areas affected by vascular disease, not simply the heart. He is currently helping to develop innovative protocols to determine the etiology of stroke and that would help reduce the risk of future therapies. Above all, he values skilled and compassionate care and feels each patient should be treated as if they were a family member. "I was drawn to Memphis after looking at a map and seeing that it was the epicenter of stroke and vascular disease in the United States. I feel that with collaboration among area physicians, we can work together to recognize, prevent, and treat vascular disorders". Dr. Klemis has appointments available Wednesdays and Fridays at the Germantown office of Stern Cardiovascular Center.  He can be reached at 901-271-1000.
