Dr. Paul Grossfeld is a board-certified pediatric cardiologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an associate clinical professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine. He treats both pediatric and adult patients with congenital heart disease.

After earning his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern School of Medicine in 1992, he went on to complete his pediatrics residency training in 1995 at UC San Diego, followed by a pediatric cardiology fellowship at UC San Diego in 1999.

Dr. Grossfeld has a particular interest in treating patients with rare genetic syndromes and serves as the chief medical advisor for the 11q Research and Resource Group. He also directs a basic science research laboratory at UC San Diego dedicated to studying genetic causes of congenital heart disease.

Along with his clinical and research responsibilities, Dr. Grossfeld directs the pediatric cardiology fellowship program and is actively engaged in teaching fellows, residents and medical students.

Among his professional activities, he and his wife, Susan, lead an annual cardiac surgical mission to the Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Dr. Grossfeld also serves as a cardiology consultant for the United States men's and women's volleyball teams.

When not working, Dr. Grossfeld enjoys spending time with his wife and son, Stefan, traveling, and playing sports, including competitive tennis, golf and swimming in La Jolla cove.
