Diego F. Belardi, MD
I speak: English
My gender: Male
Where I practice
My parents are from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, while my father was doing his cardiology fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic. Once he completed his training, we moved back to Argentina, where I lived most of my life until I graduated medical school at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. After medical school I worked at Johns Hopkins University for two and a half years, conducting research in heart failure and resynchronization therapy. I was then offered the opportunity to complete my internal medicine residency at Johns Hopkins University. Although I enjoyed my time in Baltimore, I was happy to relocate to Denver for the chance to train at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. During my cardiology fellowship, I was introduced to clinical electrophysiology by Dr. Laurent Lewkowiez and Dr. Chris Lowery, who I am now proud to call colleagues. I completed my electrophysiology training with Dr. Fred Morady, who is one of the world leaders in electrophysiology, at the University of Michigan. After completing my training, I returned to Colorado to serve Kaiser Permanente members.
About my practice
I look forward to seeing my patients and enjoy learning about them. I listen and seek to understand my patients’ questions and concerns. My goal is to provide the most appropriate care for my patients, so they aren’t spending extra time or money to get the care they deserve.
How I thrive
I grew up spending my vacations in the Argentinean Patagonia region and missed the contact with nature, so it has been great living in Colorado and I have really enjoyed getting back to the mountains. I enjoy riding my motorcycle, skiing, fly fishing, camping and mountain biking in my free time. I train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu several times a week. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and two children.
