Dr. Pramod Kariyanna treats patients with heart attack, chest pain, heart failure, arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeats), pericardial disease, blood clots in legs and lungs, peripheral arterial and vein disorders. He does catheter based interventions to treat heart attacks, blood clots, varicose veins and arterial blockages.
“It is a privilege to be involved in the care of patients with heart and vascular problems, which is the leading cause of disease and death in the United States," Dr. Kariyanna says.
He is focused on personalizing evidence-based medicine and tailors management to address patients' needs with their full participation.
“Preventative cardiac care and optimal medical management is key in helping patients," he said. “What works for one patient may not work for the other, so it is very important to listen and let the patient tell us what they need and expect."
