About me

Rahul Anand, MD is a fellowship-trained cardiologist with the MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center. He is board-certified in echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, and internal medicine.

Dr. Anand treats patients with a wide range of cardiovascular issues including coronary artery disease, heart rhythm disorders, high cholesterol, hypertension, and congestive heart failure. 

It is important to Dr. Anand that he treats and understands each patient as a whole, and not just their disease. Communication with his patients is paramount to understanding each person along with their individual circumstances –which in turn allows him to create a more tailored treatment plan. In fact, he chose cardiology as his specialty because heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and he felt he could help the most people by working to address these issues.

Dr. Anand values his relationship with referring physicians and enjoys collaborating with them and providing ongoing communications about mutual patients.
