About Ripa Chakravorty, MD

  • When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, working out, listening to music, and cooking. Dr. Chakravorty is relatively new to Central Texas, but is exploring and enjoying its landscape, trails, and the great food scene!

My interest in medicine has grown gradually from my inquisitiveness about the human body and physiology to the science of diagnostic clinical medicine. Cardiology involves the convergence of my clinical knowledge with critical thinking and the use of cutting-edge technology to diagnose and treat complex problems. I believe in a team approach to my patients’ health – myself, the patient’s PCP, other specialists – along with the patient and their family, considering their current lifestyle, beliefs, and socioeconomic conditions to devise an effective and comprehensive plan that can be continued long term.

Treadmill Stress Testing

Treadmill Stress Testing

A treadmill test helps a doctor determine how well your heart handles work. As your body works harder during the test, it requires more oxygen, so the heart must pump more blood. The test can show if the blood supply is reduced in the arteries that supply the heart. It also helps doctors know the kind and level of exercise appropriate for a patient.

    great visit. service with respect.

  • May 22, 2024

    Appreciate the heart monitor on my chest!

  • May 22, 2024

    More like Dr Ripa! She didn’t rush the session, answered my questions clearly and completely.

  • May 21, 2024

    I appreciated the care from Dr. C but feel like the possibilities from the coming exam were not explained. The most serious outcome was explained, about how the heart works or in my case isn’t working. But I’m trying to explain the situation to my daughter, I realized I didn’t have enough information I understood well enough to convey the results. Also I didn’t get printed notes about her evaluation and looked on the MycareChart but there wasn’t nothing last night.

    Very caring

    I would have preferred to know in advance I would need *fasting* blood work, so that I could have done everything in one day.
