Specialties

Dr. Ajay K Gaalla has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Kind hearted doctor :D

Dr. G is SO kind and warm and friendly. He always has a smile and you get the feeling he actually cares for your well being whereas with many doctors they seem to be going through the motions and are in and out fast, leaving you to deal with their staff. He spends a lot of time answering questions and explaining things to me during my appointments and when I've been in the hospital (DeTar - the best nurses!) he has come by to see me often and even late in the evening.

The staff was very unprofessional. The doc wonderful. I asked questions to staff requiring a procedure and was treated rude. Through more I ask the ruder.I will not go back. I have made a appointment with another cardiologist. Echo done I will pick up results to take to my new Doc. I refuse to return even for results. I had more chest pain after the appointment than before. No follow will happen
