Care Philosophy

Prevention is indeed better than cure, but it is never too late to take care of your health and redirect priorities. Prevention Works! I consider it an honor and privilege to assist patients with their medical needs. Being open to consideration of non-traditional therapies and providing natural options for disease management and wellness, empowers patients to be in charge of their own health. 

Biography

Dr. Umesh Patel, MD FACC has an international background and multi-cultural upbringing in a medical family, which has allowed him to have a unique perspective on how to relate to and interact with his patients to deliver exceptional care, as outlined in Who's Who in the World 2015.

He completed college in London, England, and earned a medical degree from the University of London in 1979, followed by five years of post-graduate education in England, with a further five years of residency and fellowship at Tulane University Medical School Department of Medicine.

Having successfully obtained four Board Certifications in multiple specialties, he commenced practicing cardiology in 1989 and has been instrumental in the development of cardiology services on the Northshore area of Greater New Orleans.

At the Louisiana Heart Hospital & Medical Group, Lacombe, LA and Heart and Vascular Clinic, Covington, LA he held multiple leadership positions, including Founding Member, Governing Board Member, Medical Director, Chairman of the Departments of Internal Medicine & Cardiology, etc. He developed and implemented multiple clinic and hospital protocols that reduced errors and increased patient safety and satisfaction.

When the owners of the Louisiana Heart Hospital & Medical Group abruptly closed those facilities, he and his staff joined the Louisiana Heart Center in Covington, LA to continue delivering excellence in patient care.

He enjoys diagnosing patients' problems and tailoring treatment plans to their individual needs, with a strong emphasis on preventative care to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations. As a testimony to his rich educational and cultural background, he is open to patients using complementary medical approaches in conjunction with traditional Western science based medical practice.

Being open to consideration of non-traditional therapies and providing natural options for disease management and wellness, empowers patients to be in charge of their own health. 

    Dr. Patel says...

    I have special expertise in listening to patients to diagnose and manage their medical concerns by applying a combination of personalized attention and internationally acquired medical knowledge. Patients who understand their condition(s) and participate in their treatment live healthier and fuller lives. This philosophy is the reason many patients seek us out for management of complex conditions such as dysautonomia, dizziness, fatigue, etc. allowing them to return to their daily activities of living and enjoying life once again.
