Frank Laws, MD, FACC
Electrophysiologist & Interventional Cardiologist
Coronary Artery Disease
Dr. Frank A. Laws is one of the few physicians in the United States who specializes in both interventional cardiology and electrophysiology. As a “hybrid” physician, Dr. Laws offers patients with both cardiac arrhythmias and obstructive coronary artery disease the most comprehensive care in the region. Dr. Laws completed his cardiology fellowship and his subspecialty fellowship in interventional cardiology at the University of Texas Houston Medical School. In 2001, while at the University of Texas he received a special commendation from the University of Texas board of regents for being the first American College of Cardiology (ACC) Merck Cardiology Research Fellow. As an assistant professor in clinical internal medicine at the University of South Carolina, he began an interventional cardiology program at the WJB Dorn VA Medical Center in Columbia, SC. While at WJB Dorn, he helped to pioneer a cardiac program without cardiovascular surgical back up. Dr. Laws was recruited in 2006 to Valley View to develop the Heart and Vascular program, including the Heart catheterization lab. Most recently, Dr. Laws embarked upon a secondary year-long fellowship in 2014 at a training program with the Tufts University School of Medicine to provide better care for patients with cardiac arrhythmias. His additional education has raised the level of expertise so that Valley View is now able to offer advanced cardiac services.
