Cardiologists Michael Cohan, DO, and Burton Tepfer, MD, offer their expertise to heart patients by diagnosing the problem and then prescribing the treatment which can range from medication, exercise, dietary changes to cardiac catheterizations. Patients needing cardiac catheterizations are referred by Drs. Cohan and Tepfer to our tertiary medical center, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for those procedures.
