Meenakshi A. Bhalla, MD, FACC

Medical Director, Preventive Cardiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation
  • About

    Meenakshi A. Bhalla, MD, FACC, specializes in the care of adults with severe heart problems. She has advanced training in the treatment and long-term care of patients with advanced heart failure; patients supported with a mechanical heart pump, such as a left ventricle assist device (LVAD); and heart transplant patients.

    Bhalla attended medical school at Indira Gandhi Medical School in India. She completed internal medicine residency training at the University of Buffalo, Catholic Health System in 2006 and then went to the University of Missouri in Columbia for her cardiology fellowship training, which she completed in June 2009. She was an assistant professor in cardiology at Emory University Hospital before completing training in advanced heart failure at Christiana Health Care in Wilmington, Del., and cardiac transplant training at the University of Pennsylvania.

    Personal Statement

    I enjoy working with patients and their families and developing relationships from the critically ill setting in the hospital to the long-term care setting in the outpatient clinic. Diagnosis of heart failure can be scary for patients and their families. Involving patients and families at every step of the process helps them improve their understanding of the complex disease and helps them make informed decisions to take better care of themselves.
