We are the Heart Institute on the Gulf Coast
Our heart doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners treat cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) disease.
Appointments are easy and can be scheduled the same or following week. We will need your previous health records, if any; so please call ASAP so we will have time to collect all the information we need.
Our Cardiology Practice
Our Heart Doctors
A brief introduction of our board-certified cardiologists
Bassam R. Baroudi, MD, FACC, FSCAI
Dr. Baroudi is a very experienced cardiologist who established this cardiology practice in 1998. He is very thorough in his face-to-face, hands-on evaluation, and when needed, performs cath procedures to open blocked heart arteries, places stents in them, and implants pacemakers and defibrillators (devices under skin wired directly to the inside of the heart)
He is compassionate and caring, and personalizes his approach to each individual patient’s condition.
He enjoys fishing, hunting, and traveling.
Shwan Jalal, MD, FACC
Dr. Jalal completed his interventional cardiology fellowship in 2017, and joined our practice in July of the same year. His knowledge, skills and compassion quickly lead to rise of his name as one of the best cardiologists on the coast.
James Hardwick, MD, FACC
Dr. Hardwick joined our group in February of 2019, bringing a wealth of cardiology experience.
