Dr. Rampurwala, usually called 'Dr. R' by his patients, is an interventional cardiologist and peripheral vascular specialist. He is board certified in internal medicine, cardiology, interventional cardiology, echocardiography and vascular interpretation. But that alone is not what you should be looking for in your physician. Equally important is that your doctor spends time to explain your diagnosis, your options and the reasoning behind his recommendations for you. Though knowledge and application of evidence-based medicine is important, treating patients with empathy and compassion is even more important.
