Pikeville Medical Center’s (PMC) growth in the Heart and Vascular Institute continues. PMC is focused on hiring the best physicians in the world to provide the best care possible to the community.
PMC is proud to announce the addition of Pradeepto Ghosh, MD, a world renowned Cardiologist. Dr. Ghosh is the latest addition to the Heart and Vascular Institute, bringing with him a unique and impressive background.
He grew up in India and is a second generation physician.
“I grew up watching my dad care for his patients. I witnessed the special relationship he had with them. It sparked my dream to help people and care for them,” said Dr Ghosh.
He completed his graduate education at Manipal College of Medical Sciences in Nepal and his cardiology research at Lancashire Cardiac Center in the United Kingdom. In addition, he achieved his Medical Training rotation at Queen Alexandra Hospital in the United Kingdom. Ghosh finished his residency in Categorical Internal Medicine at Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood, Pa. Ghosh furthered his training and completed his cardiology fellowship at Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio.
During this time, Ghosh rotated through various specialties in medicine including cardiology, gastroenterology, respiratory medicine, intensive care, nephrology and geriatric medicine.
Dr. Ghosh was elected to the membership of the Royal College of Physicians in the United Kingdom.
In addition, he is board certified by the American College of Physicians in internal medicine, the National Board of Echocardiography and the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology.
Dr. Ghosh has practiced medicine on three different continents, bringing worldwide expertise to PMC.
“I’ve had a lot of training to get where I am today. I believe practicing medicine on three different continents gives me a different perspective of medicine and allows me to fully understand the different ways to care for someone,” said Dr. Ghosh.
He says he has practiced medicine in all types of hospitals from large to small.
“It gives me an appreciation of the technology and advanced care that is available to my patients here at PMC. In other hospitals, I’ve relied on a physical exam to determine what is going on with a patient. Here, I’m able to do both and it’s the best of both worlds,” said Dr. Ghosh.
He looks forward to providing quality cardiology care to the region and says his patients can expect to see a friendly person when they come to his office.
“I want them to think that coming to see me is like going to see an old friend. An old friend that is going to take care of them the best way I can,” said Dr. Ghosh. Patients can expect to receive advanced cardiology advice and care from him at all times, he added.
Several factors drew Dr. Ghosh to PMC. “I came to PMC because I believe that this hospital is committed to providing top-tier patient care. I have seen a genuine commitment from PMC unlike anywhere else in the world in this regard. I believe this has, and will, continue to make PMC a preeminent medical center in the United States,” said Dr. Ghosh.
When he is not caring for patients, he enjoys playing golf and tennis.
