What is a Cardiologist?
A cardiologist is a doctor who specializes in treating the heart and associated cardiovascular system. Cardiologists perform a wide range of tasks on a daily basis, from using medical imaging studies to diagnose a heart condition. This medical specialty also has several sub-specialties, for doctors who want to focus on a specific aspect of medical care for the heart.
Typically, in order to become a cardiologist, a doctor must complete medical school and a residency in internal medicine before applying for a fellowship in cardiology,A cardiology fellowship generally lasts around three years, and it includes training in using diagnostic tools, talking with patients, networking with other doctors, and using things like pacemakers and medication to treat heart conditions. Once the fellowship is completed, the doctor can apply for certification as a cardiologist before beginning to practice, or he or she can pursue training in a sub-specialty. Dr. Vallabhan's training is on the home page of this website.
Typically, a cardiologist like Dr. Vallabhan sees patients because they are referred by other doctors who have concerns about their heart health. When a cardiologist meets a new patient, the patient is interviewed and the doctor may run some diagnostic tests to get more information about the patient's condition.
When Dr. Vallabhan reaches a diagnosis, he can discuss your condition and treatment options.
