Dr. Diana S Wolfe, MD MPH, FACOG is an Associate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women’s Health, Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York.   She established the MFM Cardiology Joint Program in 2015 in response to the rising contribution of cardiovascular related morbidity and mortality in pregnancy.  The aim was to establish a multidisciplinary program to optimize the care of high-risk pregnant patients with known or suspected cardiac disease, as there is a real potential for communication gaps when patients are seen separately in contrast with parallel visits by different specialists.   She works closely with the department of Cardiology both in the outpatient and inpatient setting to establish delivery plans and continued care postpartum.  In addition, Dr. Wolfe has worked in global health and continues to use language skills mastered in the Peace Corps and in Peru.  Bombara and Spanish are widely used where she currently practices at Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, New York, as Maternal Fetal Medicine Subspecialist.
