About Me

The journey of care for each of my patients is a partnership. My goal is to provide the best possible care for my patients. Leveraging the expertise of our comprehensive care team, providing education and empowering patients is integral to my practice.

Dr. Masud earned his medical degree from King Edward Medical College in Lahore, Pakistan. He then completed his post-doctoral research fellowship at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, followed by an Internal medicine residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

 

Masud completed his clinical fellowship in cardiovascular disease at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and Interventional Cardiology fellowship at New York Medical College.

 

Masud is a fellowship-trained and board-certified doctor who specializes in cardiology, interventional cardiology, endovascular/peripheral intervention, nuclear cardiology and echocardiography.

 

He is passionate about making the patient-physician relationship a partnership. He sees the in-office visits as only a snapshot of each patient’s health care journey. In order to be a good partner, Masud emphasizes that patients must practice great self-care and healthy habits. That is why educating, and empowering patients is so important to him.

 

Masud believes in making each health care journey unique, keeping his patients’ goals first and foremost while delivering the best possible care to them. He keeps each visit open-ended and the dialogue with his patient honest.

 

His goal is to provide the best possible care through his own expertise and utilizing all options within Houston Methodist and beyond. Masud looks forward to serving The Woodlands and Montgomery County, treating each patient with the highest priority when they seek care for their medical needs.
