Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Som "I am an interventional cardiologist. I usually see patients with blocked arteries or after they have had a heart attack to perform a minimally invasive procedure called coronary angioplasty that opens up the blocked arteries to improve blood flow to the heart using stents. I am passionate about evidence based medicine. I strongly believe that the best long-term results are achieved when the patient and the doctor works together as a team to apply what we know from cutting-edge scientific evidence to treat each patient with dignity based on his or her background, values and specific needs, making sure the patient experience is a good one when delivering high quality cardiovascular care. "
