About Us

Riverside Cardiology Associates Medical Group was founded in 1989 by Dr. Pond and Dr. Chen.

We are a full-service organization of board certified cardiologists with diverse yet complementary skills. Dr. Pond’s area of interest is general cardiology, including echocardiography, stress testing, nuclear imaging, and diagnostic cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography. He serves as medical director of the cardiac rehabilitation program for the HeartCare Center at Riverside Community Hospital.

Dr. Chen is also a general adult cardiologist, with skills in diagnostic testing and therapies. He is particularly interested in preventative cardiology and lipid abnormalities, and is the founder and moving force behind the Lipid Club, which promotes lecture programs by expert guest speakers to share the latest medical information with other physicians in the community. He and Dr. Pond also founded Inland Clinical Research, a company dedicated to clinical research trials in areas such as hypertension, lipid abnormalities, diabetes mellitus, arrhythmias, and congestive heart failure.
