Alexander Paraschos, MD, PhD
Cardiologist, Interventional Cardiologist
I am an interventional cardiologist who helps patients in the cardiac catheterization lab by performing procedures like inserting stents and pacemakers. I also provide care in general cardiology and follow patients with coronary disease, congestive heart failure, and atrial fibrillation. I have spent more than 20 years at the Kernodle Clinic and helped establish and design its cath lab. I view my patients as family members and try to be conservative about when to intervene. I know there are always risks and drawbacks to any intervention, so I use good judgment to determine when a procedure is warranted. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two children, playing golf and going on winter skiing trips with my family.
Ratings and Reviews
The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Learn more about our survey process. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. Patients who see some types of providers receive a different version of the patient satisfaction survey. Those results are not available on DukeHealth.org.
