A Blend of Personalised Care and Advanced Technology Can Go A Long Way When Treating Medical Conditions

Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital welcomed a patient who has been diagnosed with coronary artery disease. The patient expressed his gratitude to Dr. Yasir Parviz, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist and the entire team at CMC hospital for their professional and excellent care.

Being diagnosed with coronary artery disease (CAD) following a CT cardiac scan that revealed a high coronary calcium score and significant narrowing in the right coronary artery, the patient was understandably concerned.

However, Dr. Parvis filled him with confidence by providing thorough information about the disease and assured him that advanced imaging technologies would be used to create a personalised treatment plan for him.
