What is a Heart-Lung Associates Office?

The Heart-Lung Associates Office located at 297 Lafayette Avenue, Hawthorne, NJ 07506 was initially conceived by John E. Strobeck, MD, Ph.D. Together with his Pulmonary Medicine consultant, Dr. Joseph Grizzanti of Respiratory Health and Critical Care Associates, PA, and a capable staff, Dr. Strobeck built a 8000 sq. ft. comprehensive outpatient cardiopulmonary care facility - widely considered to be the first of its kind in the nation - to serve the residents of Bergen and Passaic Counties, NJ.

The Heart-Lung Associates Office provides to its patients, area physicians, and the community state-of-the-art programs in cardiopulmonary disease prevention, urgent cardiopulmonary care, full cardiopulmonary consultative services, complete cardiovascular and pulmonary diagnostic testing, and sophisticated cardiac and pulmonary treatments. This unique and comprehensive array of services provides stability to the most severely ill patients allowing them to be cared for primarily as outpatients and avoid unnecessary hospitalization.

These programs are all carried out in a warm, friendly, efficient environment, which makes everyone feel comfortable and reassured. The staff includes Dr. John E. Strobeck (Cardiology), Dr. Andrew Buda (Cardiology), Dr. Janet E. Strain (Cardiology), Dr. Jonathan Greenblatt (Cardiology), Dr. Robert Berkowitz (Cardiology), Drs. Joseph Grizzanti, Marc Melamed, Mark Hoerman, Wanda Choy, and Rob Scanlon of Respiratory Health and Critical Care Associates, PA (Pulmonary Medicine), Dr. Melvin Freundlich (Nuclear Medicine), Anthony Mangieri, PA, Erin Pojanowski, PA, critical care nurses, a respiratory therapist, certified medical technicians, phlebotomists, ultrasound and nuclear medicine technicians, critical care/ER technicians, and a courteous billing staff whose mission is to provide you, the patient, with the highest level of care and compassion possible.
