Specialties

Dr. Mark J Hausknecht 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.

Dr. Hausknecht is the BEST!

Before having shoulder replacement surgery, my husband required a complete cardio workup by a Houston cardio doc. We chose Dr. Hausknecht because of his credentials...little did we know what all we would be getting!! His professionalism, knowledge and empathy was AWESOME! My husband is terminally ill, so we have had a go or two on the "medical merry-go-round" and feel very qualified to compare Dr. Hausknecht with other docs. His care of patients is shown within his staff, as well. Could not be more pleased with this doc. If we didn't live 7 hours away...he would be full time OUR cardio doc, for sure!!!
