    in Philadelphia, PA |
    I have been a patient of Dr. Meshkov's since 1985, I was 24 years old and in need of heart surgery for a valve replacement. Dr. Meshkov has been there for me in every aspect of my care. He is thorough, patient and genuine in his care and treatment. I never feel rushed during my appointments, he ensures that everything is explained and understood. Even during 2 pregnancies he supported me, called and spoke to the OB team caring for me to coordinate and monitor my cardiac status during pregnancy.

    Dr. Meshkov's Care Philosophy

    In my role as the 'quarterback' of your cardiac team, I have the experience and knowledge to help you make your heart health decisions in the same way I would make that choice for myself or a family member.

    Dr. Meshkov says...

    We have experience working with an entire range of cardiac conditions, from the management of hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidemia, to the treatment of heart attacks, heart failure, heart rhythm problems and heart valve problems.

    Dr. Meshkov says...

    The incidence of heart disease has been decreasing for many years due to the great advances in diagnosis and treatment.

    The downside of all of these great advances is that the personal side of Medicine, the "art" of it has been jeopardized by overbooked schedules, long patient waits, too many "physician extenders,"and insurance company restrictions.

    Some of these issues will sound familiar to you! That is why we are proud to offer services in a calm, caring environment where patients get the treatment that they need from a doctor who is not rushed or pressured.
