About me

Mehdi Gheshlaghi, MD, is a fellowship-trained cardiologist with the MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute who practices at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital and MedStar Harbor Hospital. He is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, cardiac imaging, adult echocardiography, and nuclear cardiology.

Dr. Gheshlaghi diagnoses, treats, and manages patients with coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis, applying the latest and most innovative approaches to provide evidence-based care. His clinical interests include cardiac imaging, heart failure, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and cardiac arrhythmias.

Dr. Gheshlaghi spent the early part of his career working for the Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Iran, also enlisting as a military service physician at that time. In 2011, he relocated to the United States to pursue additional clinical training as an internal medicine and cardiac care specialist.

An advocate for shared decision-making, Dr. Gheshlaghi takes the time to educate his patients about the steps they can take to prevent or manage cardiovascular disease. He is a firm believer in continuity in care and strives to build lifelong bonds with his patients.
