Conemaugh Physician Group Cardiology welcomes cardiologist Dr. Archana Sodagam to the practice.
Dr. Sodagam completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Western Pennsylvania Hospital and General Cardiology Fellowship at Allegheny General Hospital, both in Pittsburgh. She is board certified in Internal Medicine with certification in Nuclear Cardiology, Adult Echocardiography and Diagnostic Coronary Angiography.
“I am excited about the innovation of today’s technology, particular echocardiography,” says Dr. Sodagam. “Research shows these diagnostic tools can help diagnose heart problems before they actually begin to manifest into symptoms. As physicians, we have a much easier and more successful opportunity to treat heart disease effectively when it is diagnosed early.”
Dr. Sodagam is also a passionate advocate about women’s cardiology and the need to educate the public that women are equally at risk of heart disease. “Women tend to neglect their symptoms and their symptoms are so different than men’s,” says Dr. Sodagam. “We need to do a better job of increasing awareness and helping women to be aware of their heart risk, warning signs and symptoms and prevention.”
Dr. Sodagam is excited to work with the other eight physicians at Conemaugh Physician Group – Cardiology, now the biggest cardiology practice between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg. “These physicians seem to work very well together and have a commitment and close relationship to the community. I like that.”
In addition to seeing patients at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center, Dr. Sodagam will see patients at Conemaugh Physician Group – Cardiology’s new Greater Johnstown Tech Park location.
