Dr. Srinivas N Paranandi has the following 4 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- 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.
- Nuclear Cardiology
Rooted in general cardiology, nuclear cardiologists specialize in a specific, non-invasive imaging technique that's used to diagnose heart disease, evaluate how well your heart is pumping blood, or determine the size and place of a past heart attack.
They’re able to take pictures and video of your heart during stress tests, and in resting states, that allow them to diagnose patients as well as recommended treatments, medication and additional testing that might be needed. They often work closely with radiologists to assess the damage of a past heart attack or the patient's risk for future heart attacks.

Dr P is a very thorough and kind doctor. He laid out in detail what I needed to do for my health and well-being and scheduled appropriate tests for accurate diagnosis. He always asks if I have any questions, and listens tentatively to my questions or concerns and has knowledgeable responses. I know a couple of people who see him and have nothing but praise for him. One is my Aunt.
Took my 83 yr.old mother into see dr. paranandi for results did not even get those instead he was so rude to my mom and talking to her like she was dumb. I don't care how good of a doctor you are. You never talk to anyone like he did very unprofessional. I have never seen this behavior in any professional field. she will be finding a new Doctor that is for sure.
The doc didn't show up until two hours after my appointment was supposed to start. I witnessed the staff canceling someone else's appointment and asking him to come back another day even as he protested that he had taken off work for the appointment. Prices are about 10 times Heathcare Bluebook pricing. I was happy with the doctor himself but I sure wouldn't recommend anyone to business like this.
Dr. Paranandi is a very good doctor and I have no problem with him. I have been a patient of his for 11 or so years. However, over the years the efficiency of his staff has deteriorated. We are full time RVrs and travel around the country. I must have my INR checked periodically to ensure correct dosage of Coumadin. It sometimes takes 4 or 5 days before his nurse calls with results. Have also had issues getting prescription refills as they are slow to respond. Feel as if I am a new patient every time I go in there or call. When I call, am transferred to nurse, always get answering machine and takes several days and sometimes several calls on my part before I get a call back. Again when dealing with life issues, you would think they would realize the urgency of responding to the patient.
I had to basically force my father into being seen by a cardiologist after he let it "slip" he was having heart pain for 6mo. After finding some old records from a year ago I was so glad I did. Having some basic medical knowledge I knew the situation didn't look good but Dr. Paranandi listened to everything my dad said and then he completely laid it out for him and expressed the seriousness of the matter. I only wish my mother was there so he could get her in line as well! My husband works in the hospitals and Dr. Paranandi is respected and said to be a great Dr. We have had to make some scheduling changes and they have accommodated us with no problem!
