Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital welcomes electrophysiologist Apoor Patel, M.D.
Board-certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist Apoor Patel, M.D. is joining Houston Methodist DeBakey Cardiology Associates in Sugar Land.
Patel specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of irregular heart rhythms via electrophysiology testing and ablation – a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat or cold to create scarring in heart tissue that stops abnormal electrical signals and restores normal heart function. He also specializes in the WATCHMAN™ procedure, an implantation of pacemaker and defibrillators.
Patel comes to Houston Methodist Sugar Land from New York, where he served as director of complex ablations and attending physician in cardiology/electrophysiology for North Shore – Long Island Jewish Hospitals. He also served as assistant professor at Hofstra University School of Medicine.
He earned his medical degree with honors at UCLA Medical School in Los Angeles and completed his residency in internal medicine at Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He then completed a fellowship in cardiology/electrophysiology at Weill Cornell Medical School/New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.
Patel’s office is located on the Houston Methodist Sugar Land campus in Medical Office Building 3 at 16605 Southwest Freeway, Suite 420.
“I am thrilled to be at Houston Methodist Sugar Land and excited about the opportunity to contribute to the thriving cardiology services that the hospital and my new colleagues have created,” Patel said.
