Dr. Nilesh Bavishi, F.A.C.C., is an experienced cardiologist who has been in practice since 1995. A cardiologist is a physician who deals with diseases and disorders of the heart, which is an organ that allows blood to circulate throughout our body. Proper blood exchange ensures the transference of nutrients into tissues and the expelling of toxins and waste products from the body.
A list of diseases that Dr. Bavishi frequently encounters can be found here. Common diseases seen include coronary artery disease, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, heart failure, heart attack, heart valve problems, irregular heart rhythms (such as arrhythmias), and stroke. Common symptoms of heart disease seen by Dr. Bavishi include chest pain, palpitations, dizziness, fainting, and shortness of breath.
Because the heart is such a vital organ for our functioning, diseases affecting the heart can be extremely detrimental to one’s lifestyle. Thus, in addition to dealing with disorders involving the heart, Dr. Bavishi is a proponent of preventative care and medicine. More specifically, there are certain conditions and routines that expose individuals to greater risk of future heart disease. Such conditions include high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, obesity, improper diet and nutrition, drinking, and stress. Dr. Bavishi will work with you to identify these conditions and help reduce your risk of developing heart disease. Sometimes due to the side effects of medications experienced by many patients, Dr. Bavishi will integrate alternative therapies and methods along with changes in diet, exercise, and lifestyle to prevent or treat conditions.
He is board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease. Dr. Bavishi is fluent in Spanish, Gujarati, and Hindi. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC), a member of the Harris County Medical Society (HCMS), and a member of the Texas Medical Association (TMA). Additionally, Dr. Bavishi’s ultrasound laboratory is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL). Accreditation by the ICAEL is an honor that demonstrates Dr. Bavishi’s commitment to providing quality care.
