Georgios Syros, MD, is the Director of Arrhythmia Services at Mount Sinai Queens. He is board certified in internal medicine, adult cardiology/cardiovascular disease, adult cardiac electrophysiology, nuclear cardiology, and adult echocardiography. He received his medical degree summa cum laude from Athens University Medical School and then became a research scholar at Columbia University in the Department of Cardiology. He went on to complete a residency in internal medicine at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospitals. He subsequently completed a cardiovascular fellowship at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, Boston, followed by an electrophysiology fellowship at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. Dr. Syros has clinical interests in treating arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, bradycardia, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia. He is skilled in electrophysiology studies, radiofrequency ablation, automatic implantable cardioverter defribrillator (ICD) placement, and pacemaker insertion. In addition to treating arrhythmias, Dr. Syros is fully trained in adult echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. Given his extensive training and experiences, Dr. Syros is able to treat a range of cardiac conditions including coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. Dr. Syros is passionate about bringing state-of-the-art technology and cardiac care from the centers where: the research is being done, the advances are being developed and the care is being given, right into the Queens community, thereby elevating the community’s access to the latest medical advances in cardiac care. Patient education is also a priority for him and he looks forward to engaging in community outreach events. Having been involved in a number of research projects, Dr. Syros is an author on several publications on heart disease. He is also a member of The American College of Cardiology, the American Medical Association and the Hellenic Medical Society of New York. He is a native Greek speaker.

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.
