- Cardiovascular Disease
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.

I was told that I had some form of disease that made my heart weak which was diagnosed on a heart MRI. I knew something was wrong because I was getting short of breath even walking 100 feet. When comments like heart transplant are mentioned, my wife and I decided to get another opinion and came to see Dr. Chemmalakuzhy. He reviewed all my records beforehand and first thing he said when we met is let's not talk about transplant yet. The next 45 minutes was an extensive review, exam and discussion of options. The following week he performed a heart biopsy and he said what I had was not serious and can be treated without a transplant. I am on medicines and feeling better but most importantly he empowered me and gave me strength to get better. Amazing man but also a physician with the most compassion I have ever met. Thank you sir.
I have seen Dr. Chemmalakuzhy for several years but at my last office visit at his new practice, I realized how fortunate I am to be his patient. He explains complex medical issues without a doubt, bases decisions on science but with a splash of humanity. Healthcare in our great country is broken but after visits with him, I feel there is hope. Thank you sir!
Dr. Chemmalakuzhy was able to diagnosis my health issue in 2 visits. I had this problem for 3 years before someone was able to tell me what was wrong and how he was going to fix it. Thank you Dr. Chemmalakuzhy.
