NYC Hypertension Specialist
Telehealth Virtual Appointments Available
Dr. Mann is a hypertension specialist practicing in New York, affiliated with New York Presbyterian Hospital – Weill Cornell Medical College. He believes that we have the knowledge and medications to bring blood pressure under control without side effects in almost all patients. However, too many treated patients are living with inadequately controlled hypertension and/or are suffering from avoidable side effects because they are not on the medication that is right for them.
Areas of Focus
Dr. Mann focuses on both drug- and non-drug treatment of hypertension. Areas of particular interest include resistant hypertension, paroxysmal (episodic) hypertension, mind-body aspects of hypertension, and hypertension in young adults.
His approach to treatment is to determine the underlying causes of a patient’s hypertension, focusing on whether the hypertension is driven by the kidneys, the sympathetic nervous system, endocrine factors and/or the mind-body connection. Understanding this allows for selection of treatment best suited for each individual patient, maximizing effectiveness and minimizing side effects.
His approach to non-drug treatment involves focusing on healthy habits and on psychological factors that play a role in the development of hypertension. He offers a very different understanding of the mind-body connection, a topic that is the main focus of his new book Hidden Within Us, to be released in February 2022.
