About Christine Bussey, MD

Dr. Bussey is a specialty care cardiologist who has been board certified in cardiovascular medicine, nuclear cardiology, and internal medicine. She joined Inova Medical Group with more than 17 years of clinical experience. She has a special interest in management of women’s heart disease, coronary artery disease, and congestive heart failure.

Currently, Dr. Bussey serves as the Medical Director of Nuclear Cardiology at Inova Fairfax Hospital and is a member of the Cardiac Operations committee. Dr. Bussey became interested in cardiology because she felt it provided the greatest opportunity to positively impact morbidity and mortality in the number one killer in America. Her goal is to help patients live longer, happier, and better than in generations past by incorporating preventative care measures and, where needed, medications and procedures.

A native of New York City, Dr. Bussey currently resides in Springfield, VA, with her husband and three children. In her spare time she enjoys walking, traveling, and spending time with her family at area parks, museums, and the zoo.
