PHA Centers of Comprehensive Care

History

Dr. Ahearn and Dr. Feldman moved to Arizona in 2004 and have developed a comprehensive, nationally recognized pulmonary hypertension program. Both physicians have specialized training in PAH. The PH program has two full-time nurse coordinators and has a robust research department with five research coordinators. They are proficient in all therapies for PAH and have been involved in most major clinical trials over the past decade. The PH program provides a full spectrum of care for inpatients and outpatients. They have developed a network of specialists who contribute to the care of PAH patients, including but not limited to expert anesthesiologists and surgeons who have worked on many hundreds of patients over the years. They have a rich collaboration with rheumatologists from across the state.
