Dan Vaisman, MD

I got interested in medicine as a boy, growing up with asthma, trying to understand why I would get short of breath. That has taken me on a lifelong journey studying our amazing human body. I am originally from Peru, went to medical school in Argentina, and did all my clinical training in Houston.

My Passion for Healthcare

My passion is to try to make a difference in the lives of the patients I see every day. To treat everybody equally. To give you the time that you need and deserve, when you come for a visit. Give you the opportunity to discuss and answer your questions and concerns. Help you make decisions regarding prevention, as well as guide and recommend indicated tests and treatments for cardiovascular problems. If I could do all that, with compassion, respect and common sense, I would have accomplished the reasons why I became a physician.

  2. Stress Testing

The focus of our clinical practice is first on prevention, and then diagnosis and treatment. We treat patients with a variety of general cardiology problems including coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, valve problems, heart failure and rhythm abnormalities. I have particular interest in the non-invasive evaluation of cardiac problems including stress testing, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, CT scans of the heart and cardiac MRI. I am also interested in Sports Cardiology.
