Dr. Dhawan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dhawan "It delights me to be part of a busy cardiology practice that serves the rapidly growing Northeast Metro Atlanta area. I went to Medical School at the University of Mumbai in India, completed my residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and then went on complete my fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease at Emory University. At Emory University, I was actively involved in cutting edge research using intravascular ultrasound and flow data to construct complex fluid hemodynamic models in collaboration with the Dean of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I have been on the front end of conducting several clinical trials, have presented my work at several regional and national conferences and have authored and co-authored over 40 manuscripts and book chapters. My focus of interest has been studying plaque progression in the coronary arteries and cardiovascular imaging. After spending 6 wonderful and insightful years at Emory, I joined Dr. Salman Ashfaq at Cardiovascular Clinic of North Georgia and over time as a team we have developed a busy practice that serves the Northeast Metro Atlanta area which I have come to call 'home' now. I really enjoy taking care of my fellow citizens and being part of the community. I see patients in the outpatient setting at our clinics in Gainesville, Braselton, Buford and Johns Creek and admit to Northeast Georgia Medical Center and Emory Johns Creek Hospital. I routinely interpret transthoracic, transesophageal, 3 dimensional, stress and dobutamine echocardiograms; non-invasive vascular diagnostic imaging that spans carotid duplex, peripheral arterial duplex, renal artery duplex and abdominal aortic imaging and perform left and right heart catheterization via transradial approach. I am board certified in Cardiovascular Disease, Internal Medicine, Echocardiography, Nuclear Cardiology and Vascular Imaging."

I have never had any issue with my heart, but during a routine physical I was told that I needed to visit a cardiologist. I was extremely afraid of what might be the case, so I reluctantly followed through on setting up my appointment. From the first call to my final diagnosis (I'm perfectly fine),...Read More

5 stars are not enough for Dr. Dhawan. He is truly amazing. Always takes his time, asks questions and referrers other specialists when needed. He went as far as calling another doctor and having a procedure scheduled for the following week when the wait time was over 30 days. He researched and...Read More
