She also has expertise in echocardiography, valvular heart disease and heritable disorders of the heart and aorta. Prior to joining Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, Dr. Forbess served as medical director of Adult Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Disease in Pregnancy at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and as associate professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Dr. Forbess earned her medical degree at Harvard Medical School. She completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.
