Stephen C. Culp, MD, FACC, FSCAI

 

Dr. Culp

Dr. Stephen Culp has practiced Interventional Cardiology in Sarasota since 1995. Dr. Culp is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases and Interventional Cardiology. He received his undergraduate education at Yale and was awarded the “Berkeley College Master’s Prize” at graduation. Dr. Culp received his medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine. He obtained his specialty internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at Duke University, where he was selected as the Assistant Chief Medical Resident in Internal Medicine. He also received his subspecialty training in general and interventional cardiology at Duke, and then joined the full-time faculty with a position in the Private Diagnostic Clinic, with the rank of Assistant Professor of Medicine.

For the past ten consecutive years he has been acknowledged by his peers as a Castle-Connelly Top Doctor in Interventional Cardiology. He maintains a strong commitment to research and training, maintaining an adjunct faculty position at Duke, and serving as principal investigator in multiple medical trials.

In today’s complex medical environment, Dr. Culp’s training has prepared him to manage whatever problem the patient brings from the common to complex.
