Dr. DeCristofaro earned a bachelors degree in chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his medical degree from Chicago Medical School. After completing his internship in internal medicine at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, Dr. DeCristofaro came to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center where he pursued research as a resident, earning fellowships from the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association (AHA).

Upon completion of his research fellowships, he entered private practice in Long Beach and became director of the cardiac catheterization lab at St. Mary Medical Center. He also helped establish a cardiology training program with support from AHA, the St. Mary Medical Center Foundation and the medical group to which he belongs, Cardiovascular Associates.

During the almost 40 years since then, Dr. DeCristofaros name is synonymous with heart care at St. Marys. He has served in numerous capacities, including chief of staff, chair of the Department of Medicine and as a member of the Board of Directors. He has co-authored numerous publications and invited presentations on diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. He also continues to practice cardiology part-time at St. Marys.

Dr. DeCristofaro served as president and chairman of the LA BioMed Board of Directors when the institute was known as the Research and Education Institute. He also served as president of the California AHA affiliate. He chaired the annual meeting for the California Heart Association, and he served the AHA national organization as the chairman of the Southwest Regional Research Review and Advisory Committee. He and his wife have been active fundraisers and volunteers for AHA, and the organization recognized his service in 1998 by awarding Dr. DeCristofaro its prestigious Heart of Gold Award.
