Austin Regional Clinic Adds Cardiology Specialty

Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) has added non-surgical Cardiology to the 18 specialties currently offered to patients.

Parul Desai, MD, who has practiced Cardiology in the Austin area for over 18 years, sees established ARC patients for consultations and diagnostic services including echocardiograms, echocardiographic interpretation, and stress testing.

“Heart disease can mimic and aggravate other conditions. Having ARC clinic access to a cardiologist can speed diagnoses and close treatment gaps,” said Dr. Anas Daghestani, ARC CEO. Other benefits for patients with complex needs may include faster interventions and fewer repetitive diagnostic tests, such as labs and X-rays.

“Coordinated care is at the heart of what ARC provides,” continued Dr. Daghestani. “Adding these services, with an experienced cardiologist, not only helps provide better outcomes, but saves healthcare dollars in the long run.”

Dr. Desai is seeing patients at ARC Far West Medical Tower and ARC Quarry Lake. For more information and to make appointments, call 512-272-4636.
