About the Provider

W. David Xu, MD is a cardiologist specializing in Advanced Heart Failure at the MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute. He sees patients at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital and MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital. He holds board certifications in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, and advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.

Dr. Xu specializes in the management of patients with heart failure and those requiring mechanical support devices including left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). He is particularly interested in LVAD recovery, and medical therapy for cardio-renal syndrome and diuretic resistance.

He chose to specialize in advanced heart failure because of the opportunity it affords him to take care of his patients long term. Patients with heart failure have special challenges but are very involved in their care and are invested in getting better. Working as a team, we can help these patients achieve their goals in improving their quality of life –understanding that each patient defines their own milestones in this process. He works closely with patients and their families to ensure they understand all aspects of the care plan and presents the options that most closely align with his patients’ goals and lifestyle.

Outside of work, Dr. Xu enjoys getting to know his new home, Maryland, as well as exploring the nation’s capital. He and his wife have a golden retriever and a border collie that they rescued and now have seen four different states.

Dr. Xu is a member of the American College of Cardiology and the Heart Failure Society of America.
