About me

Dr. Aldweib specializes in caring for adults with heart problems. He has advanced training in birth defects that affect the heart (congenital heart disease) in addition to advanced heart failure therapies and heart transplant. Dr. Aldweib cannot think of a more noble way to add to life than prolonging and improving the quality of life of patients with congenital heart disease. His research focuses on further elucidating heart failure mechanisms in adults with congenital heart disease.

Outside work, he enjoys running, listening to Jazz music and exploring Oregon's exuberant natural splendor.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
