About

Bio

I have been practicing medicine for the past 14 years. I am board certified in Cardio-Vascular medicine and Internal medicine. I treat patients will all types of heart disease and focus on nutritional and preventive medicine. My expertise is in the diagnosis and treatment of various heart conditions such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, abnormal heart rhythms and valvular heart disease. I routinely perform EKG's, stress tests, echo-cardiograms and cardiac catheterization procedures. Most importantly however, I am trained as a nutritionist as well as in herbal therapies. This allows me to cover a broad range of treatments including dietary counseling, evidence based herbal therapies, as well as state of the art prescription medications.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

When I first met Dr.Azhak I was immediately put at ease. He was ease to talk with and was willing to listen to some overall concerns that I had regarding my existing medications.
