Northern Light Mercy Hospital is pleased to welcome Aline Iskandar, MD and Adam Karpman, DO to Northern Light Mercy Cardiovascular Care in Portland. Photos of each physician are attached. 

“We are excited to welcome Dr. Iskandar and Dr. Karpman to Mercy,” said Charlie Therrien, president of Mercy Hospital. “They will help us increase access to specialty care in the community, and the expertise of both cardiologists allows us to expand non-invasive services to include coronary CT imaging.”
Coronary CT imaging is a diagnostic test that produces detailed images of the arteries of the heart. This non-invasive imaging technique provides valuable information about the presence and extent of coronary artery disease.
