He also manages critically ill cardiac patients requiring maximal cardiopulmonary support in the ICU and cardiovascular emergencies such as acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), sudden cardiac arrest, severe heart failure with cardiogenic shock, pericardial tamponade and life-threatening arrhythmias including Ventricular tachycardia/Ventricular fibrillation and advanced heart blocks.

“On an everyday basis, I enjoy making individualized treatment plans based on meaningful interactions with my patients and find being of service rewarding,” he said. “The hope and grace my sickest cardiac patients show as they fight disease everyday empowers me to develop resilience and compassion, and on the other hand, the excellent outcomes achieved with interventional cardiology and ever evolving cutting edge technology involved, keep me excited.”

When not treating his patients, Dr. Tandon loves to travel with his wife Anamika and their little boy Amae, exploring new destinations across US and internationally.
