Dr Reza Moazzeni Cardiologist Westmead
As a Cardiologist consulting at Westmead (Sydney), I manage different types of heart disease, including Left Heart Failure, Right Heart Failure, Heart attack, valvular heart disease, Atrial Fibrillation (AF), and Lipid disorders (including Familial Hypercholesterolemia or FH) and etc. There is nothing more rewarding in medicine than being able to “prevent” a devastating disease from happening. Prevention is especially relevant in the field of Cardiology. With tight control of risk factors (like hypertension or diabetes) and following a healthy lifestyle, one can prevent many common and fatal cardiac diseases like heart attacks (how to prevent a heart attack) or heart failure. Witnessing young patients who struggle with the devastating aftermath of a big heart attack is the most potent driving force for me to raise awareness about “prevention”.
Apart from preventive medicine, I am heavily involved with cardiac imaging, including Echocardiogram (Transthoracic and Transesophageal), Stress echocardiogram, CT coronary angiogram (CTCA), and Coronary Artery Calcium (CAC) Score interpretation which all are integral parts of modern cardiology practice.
I am a visiting Cardiologist at Westmead Private and Sydney Adventist Hospitals and consult in English and Persian (Farsi). I enjoy teaching and publishing educational materials for the general public and healthcare providers in various formats, like videos on my YouTube Channel and articles on my Blog.
At Heartcare Sydney, we place a strong emphasis on patient education as the cornerstone of successful health management. As a dedicated health professional, I understand the profound impact that comprehensive knowledge about diseases and ailments can have on patients’ decision-making and adherence to medical and lifestyle recommendations. During my consultations, I prioritize educating patients, equipping them with the essential information and resources they need to participate actively in their own care. This collaborative approach not only strengthens the doctor-patient relationship but also fosters improved long-term outcomes, empowering patients to take control of their health and live better lives.
When a stress test (typically walking on a treadmill), is combined with an echocardiogram (echo) to evaluate and screen for various concerns, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, and arrhythmias. As a cardiologist in Westmead, I personally supervise every single stress echocardiogram, as it offers critical insights into patients’ symptoms and complaints. Based on the results, further investigations like CT coronary angiograms or invasive angiograms may be necessary. To learn more, visit my post about Stress Echocardiogram.
Echo has been at the core of cardiology for decades, and as a cardiologist in Westmead, I recognize its immense value. It offers crucial information about cardiac function and structure. An echocardiogram can be highly beneficial in identifying the cause of common complaints like shortness of breath, palpitations, and chest pain. Echo can promptly diagnose conditions such as heart failure, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, and pulmonary hypertension. To lean more, visit my post about Echocardiogram.
