As a full time faculty member, Lense will treat inpatients at Stony Brook University Hospital and see patients at two cardiology outpatient office locations: 26 Research Way in East Setauket and 3001 Expressway Drive North in Islandia.
“So many good things are happening at Stony Brook; I wanted to be in an environment where I can contribute in terms of practicing medicine as well as to the teaching mission here,” said Lense. “With Stony Brook’s goal to expand outreach endeavors around patient education with respect to primary and secondary prevention, this was a wonderful opportunity and just the right time to make this change.”
Founder and former president of Three Village Cardiology in East Setauket, one of the most prestigious private cardiology practices in the area, Lense is an Alpha Omega Alpha graduate of the New York University School of Medicine and a trainee of Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center.
Board certified in cardiovascular disease and a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, he has served as voluntary faculty at Stony Brook University Hospital since 1983. He has appeared in Castle Connolly Best Doctors in the New York Area for the past 13 years and in 2006 received the AOA Volunteer Clinical Faculty Award Stony Brook School of Medicine.
Lense served as vice president and president of the medical staff at John T. Mather Memorial Hospital, where he also served as chair of the medical board; he was a recipient of the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council’s Theodore Roosevelt Award from Mather Hospital in 2010.
“Lloyd has earned the respect and admiration of colleagues in the community because of his dedication and the quality of care delivered to his patients,” said Luis Gruberg, Interim Chief, Division of Cardiovascular Diseases and Director of the Cardiovascular Catheterization Laboratories at Stony Brook University Medical Center. “He also has been a devoted teacher of third-year medical students for the School of Medicine.”
