Stuart O. Schecter, MD is the Director of The Mount Sinai Health Network’s Integrated Remote Monitoring System. He oversees the monitoring of implanted cardiac rhythm devices for the network of hospitals, satellite practices, affiliations, and Mount Sinai owned practices and promotes a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care. Dr. Schecter completed his post-graduate training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at Mount Sinai Hospital and completed his medical degree at the University of South Florida.
Dr. Schecter has implanted over 8000 cardiac devices and has been issued 18 United States patents, many of which are related to Cardiac Rhythm Management devices. He is Faculty of the American College of Cardiology, Faculty of the American Society of Echocardiography and is a Certified Cardiac Device Specialist of the International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners having presented at international meetings and acting as co-investigator in several landmark cardiac arrhythmia trials. He has combined his expertise in pacemakers and defibrillators with echocardiography and gained a reputation for improving patients’ congestive heart failure symptoms by optimizing cardiac device settings using cardiac ultrasound.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Schecter did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2016 and/or 2017: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
