Dr Peter Farrugia is a proud first generation American, the third son of a Maltese immigrant. He

met his loving wife Erin as a sophomore. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a dual degree
in Biology and Molecular Biology, having been successful in publishing research on advanced
molecular techniques. Dr. Farrugia then pursued medical school at the State University of New
York at Stony Brook.

As a fourth year medical student, he married his college sweetheart. Dr. Farrugia began his post graduate medical education in the Internal Medicine Program at SUNY Stony Brook. Following this, he had the honor of working at St Vincent’s Catholic Medical Center in Manhattan for his Cardiovascular Fellowship. This experience fortified his drive to deliver the highest quality care to the people who needed it the most.

After his general cardiology fellowship, Dr Farrugia pursued his Interventional Cardiology Training at Winthrop University Hospital on Long Island.
