Specialties

Dr. Raghotham R Patlola has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Couldn't ask for a better Doctor!

Dr Patlola went above and beyond when I first went to him as a patient. I had an extensive history of artery problems in my right leg. My previous doctor had told me there was nothing else to do. Just by chance a friend of mine had just finished her NP degree and was going to work for Dr Patlola. By chance I asked her if she had found a job yet and she told me about Dr Patlola. I jokingly said so does he do arteries in legs and she tod me actually that is his passion! So I called and made an appointment for an initial consultation. When I got there he came in and said I've been told of our previous surgeries and complications and there's no reason for me to do test let's just schedule you for surgery. I was a little shocked at this approach until surgery came. He repaired the artery in my leg no problem and even checked my other leg and found out it needed to be stented too. So 2 weeks later I was back at the hospital again for surgery. Everything went textbook perfect . I will no matter where Dr Patlola goes forever be his patient. He explained all procedures before hand o my husband and I both and didn't hesitate one second to answer any question we asked him. I have never felt rushed at an appointment with him and truly feel when he is in the room with me his is focused on me and my care and not just getting me out so he can get another patient in. I can not say enough good things about Dr Patlola!

Five Stars

He is an awesome physician. I saw Dr. Patlola for about ten years. He did all my vascular work. He's very knowledgeable and knows his work. I trusted this physician in all aspects of making the right choice for my health. He moved away for about three years and I'm hearing he's back in Lafayette, La.
