About me

Monvadi Barbara Srichai-Parsia, MD, is the Vice Chief of Cardiology and the Director of the Non-Invasive Cardiology Lab at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. She treats patients with heart failure, congenital heart disease, aortopathies, syncope, coronary artery disease, and other conditions of the heart. Dr. Srichai-Parsia has a special focus on autonomic dysfunction disease and connective tissue disorders. In addition, she does work in cardio-oncology, treating cancer patients who have developed heart failure or weak hearts.

With specialized training in non-invasive testing, Dr. Srichai-Parsia uses advanced cardiac imaging, including echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and CT, as well as stress testing. In her practice, she emphasizes shared decision making with the patient when selecting tests and treatments.

Dr. Srichai-Parsia’s research interests have focused on the roles of advanced imaging and other new technology in refining treatment and diagnosis. She also participates in research on the patient-centered treatment approach of shared decision making. Dr. Srichai-Parsia is exploring the different testing techniques for patients with chest pain and the factors that go into choosing diagnostic techniques based on symptomology and patient preferences for certain tests.

Dr. Srichai-Parsia received her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and completed her residency in internal medicine at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. As a fellow in general cardiology, imaging, and radiology at Cleveland Clinic, she has received a Young Investigator Award. Dr. Srichai-Parsia has a Master’s degree from New York University in Comparative Effectiveness, a course of study that focuses on improving the use of health care resources where they are most valued.

Philosophy of care
“I like to hear and understand a patient’s background and get their input and opinions on treatment. I am a strong proponent of shared decision-making. I like to present all the options as I know them, and discuss my patients’ preferences and how they would like to proceed.”
