Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Popat "As a cardiologist and patient advocate, I've met many people who felt a disconnect between their expectations and the care provided by their physicians.  Some feel doctors don't listen to them, others are not getting the medical explanations they deserve. I've found this divide often breaks the trust needed to form the foundation of a strong healthcare partnership.

In my practice, cardiac disease is addressed with an evidence-based approach keeping your needs and expectations in mind. Together, we will work to form a tailored diagnostic and treatment plan using the latest innovation and technology available.

My thought process along the way with clearly outlined goals, risks, and alternative options will be explained. I will strive to always treat you with respect while empowering you to transform your health."
