Dr Reza Moazzeni
I am a Cardiologist consulting at Westmead. I finished my training at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, in 2012. I see a wide variety of patients with many different heart-related complaints. During my training and practice years, I have gained extensive experience in managing heart failure and cardiac valvular disease, Pulmonary Hypertension, complicated cases of dyspnea (breathlessness), and Coronary Artery Disease (Heart Attack).
My other areas of interest are Syncope (fainting), Diabetes, Hypertension, smoking cessation, and managing hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol). Preventive Cardiology is undoubtedly an area that I am heavily involved with, as I believe in PREVENTION rather than waiting for disaster to happen. Various heart diseases can be prevented rather than “managed after they occurred” by managing risk factors and lifestyle modifications. I tend to focus on cardiac imaging, on the investigations side, including Echocardiogram (Transthoracic and Transesophageal), Stress echocardiogram and CT coronary angiogram (CTCA).
I am a visiting Cardiologist at Westmead Private and Sydney Adventist Hospitals and consult in English and Persian (Farsi). I enjoy teaching and creating informative materials for public and other care providers during my free time in easy and understandable language, mainly on my Blog.
Stress test (usually walking on Treadmill) combined with echocardiogram (echo) to asses and screen for wide range of cardiac abnormalities.
In my opinion, the essence and most important part of the visit. This is where the most valuable information regarding the likely pathology, i.e., your symptoms are gathered. A meticulous and thorough history taking and physical exam is the key to guide further investigations and treatment.
An imaging modality, performed for suspected problems with the valves or chambers of the heart or if heart problems are the cause of symptoms such as shortness of breath or chest pain.
