Cardiologist Ryan Tsuda Joins HealthCare Partners
HealthCare Partners expands integrated network, provides better care for heart patients
LAS VEGAS - (March 14, 2012) Las Vegas cardiologist Ryan Tsuda, M.D., F.A.C.C., has joined HealthCare Partners Medical Group, a leading physician-run group providing primary, specialty, and urgent care in Southern Nevada. Tsuda will see patients at HealthCare Partners Cardiology, a 5,200-square-foot office located inside the medical office building at Southern Hills Hospital; 9280 W. Sunset Road Ste. 320, Las Vegas, 89148.
At HealthCare Partners Cardiology, Tsuda is combining his experience with the latest in medical technology to ensure the best care for his patients. The cardiology center features a state of the art cardiac picture archive and communication system (PACS) used for echocardiography, nuclear perfusion imaging, carotid ultrasonography and peripheral vascular work.
Tsuda will work in conjunction with veteran HealthCare Partners cardiologists Dr. John B. Bedotto and Dr. Stephen J. Portz.
“Dr. Tsuda brings a wealth of experience in interventional cardiology and disease to our group,” said Portz, chief of cardiology for HealthCare Partners Medical Group. “Collaboration with highly-trained specialists is key in our patient-centered environment.”
Tsuda joined HealthCare Partners because of its “Total Care” model, an innovative health care approach in which HealthCare Partners physicians, professional staff, and the patient work as a coordinated team to manage the patient’s care and overall health.
“Total Care is the future of medicine and my patients deserve the best care available,” said Tsuda. “Having direct communication with my patients’ primary care doctors and network of specialists will allow me to treat them more effectively and positively impact their health.”
Tsuda is board certified in cardiovascular disease, nuclear cardiology, interventional cardiology and internal medicine. He received his M.D. from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2000 and completed fellowships at the University of Arizona College of Medicine and Tulane University School of Medicine. He received the Albert L. Hyman Fellow of the Year Award from Tulane University in 2007. Tsuda has a specific interest in radial artery access cardiac catheterizations and percutaneous coronary interventions.
