LEARN ABOUT DR. SINGH: Dr. Singh is a member of Atlanta Heart Specialists (AHS), an independent cardiology practice. “We are not owned by any hospital or university entity. Accordingly, when there is a service we do not provide in our office, I can offer my patients the best referrals regardless of which hospital system that involves,” Dr. Singh explained. Dr. Singh’s delivery of care is best described as patient-centred care. “We are partners in the decision-making process. While I have the clinical expertise, it is the patient who will undergo the treatment and therefore they should always have the final say on what is right for them,” stated Dr. Singh. “I am a strong believer in evidence-based medicine.
Any medications or treatment advice I offer has a high-quality clinical trial behind it to support its use. There is no point in taking a pill without a good reason to justify its use. Information empowers patients to take control of their health; I want to be their change agent.
”Dr. Singh is aware that patients may complain that their time with their doctor is too short. “I recognize that office visits are often too short; I place a lot of emphasis on educational materials that are available on my personal website www.heartdrsingh.com. They reinforce information I provided in the office. I send regular newsletters to patients; these are also available on our website,” explained Dr. Singh. All patients receive a discharge summary upon completion of their office visit.
