V. Ram Aligeti MD, FACC

Dr. Ram Aligeti has more than 15 years of experience taking care of patients with cardiovascular diseases. He takes a holistic approach in treating his patients, addressing the whole person, not just symptoms and disease. His motto is “live better and happier”. He believes prevention is key to maintaining excellent health, but at the same time as a board-certified Interventional cardiologist he is ready to offer and perform any required procedures promptly only when necessary. He respects patients’ autonomy, and lets them make an informed decision after providing a full explanation.

Dr. Aligeti, after completing medical school in India, did Internal medicine residency at University of Tennessee, Memphis, cardiology fellowship at University of Tennessee, Knoxville, echocardiography fellowship at Harvard University, Boston, MA, and Interventional cardiology fellowship at Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA.

Dr. Aligeti and his wife have two children, each of them are very active in several extracurricular activities and the community. Outside of the office he enjoys spending time with his family and supporting his children with their activities. He is an avid reader, practices yoga and meditation.
