Accepting new patients.
Dr. Sean Tierney graduated from the combined Siena College/Albany Medical College Program of Science, Humanities and Medicine in Albany, New York, where he was one of the first students in the country to take part in a premedical program with emphasis on the humanities. It was one of the first medical education programs with a distinct focus on service to others. As part of the program, he completed medical missions at orphanages in Mexico and at the Infant Welfare Society in downtown Chicago.
After medical school, Dr. Tierney completed a combined residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at Loyola University Medical Center.

Dr. Tierney performs implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators and biventricular devices used to improve congestive heart failure. He also performs catheter ablations to help cure fast heart rhythm conditions. His research interests include applications of biventricular device therapy, prevention of sudden death and the diagnosis and treatment of syncope or passing out.
