Dr. Janmohamed's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Janmohamed "Being a cardiologist has been a lifelong dream of mine and seeing my patients every day reminds me how lucky I am to be serving in this field. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Janmohamed "The sacred trust my patients have placed on me to care for them is something I take very seriously. I strive to live up to their expectation and keep their best interest at heart and treat them as if they were my own family. I work hard on making a personal connection with each patient, sometimes connecting with them on sports, culture, or food, in the hopes that they will not only see me as their physician but also as a friend whom they can trust. To me, this is the heart of the doctor patient relationship: trust and respect. I work hard to ensure that my patients needs are met and nothing makes me happier than seeing their health improve. I gain from them as much I hope they gain from me.

I am passionate about sharing new developments in cardiovascular treatment with my patients so that they can be better informed about their options. I want to give my patients a wide range of options and to remind them they are an equal partner in helping them achieve their healthiest state. "
