Nassir Azimi, MD

Cardiology La Mesa, CA

Interventional cardiologist


  • I am a quadruple board certified cardiologist practicing preventative cardiology, general cardiology and interventional cardiology. I am also doing congenital heart disease and interventions for structural heart.

    I perform peripheral procedures and interventions. I am board certified in internal medicine 2001 and 2012, in cardiology 2004 and 2014 and interventional cardiology in 2005. I am also board certified in nuclear cardiology 2013.

    My philosophy of patient care is to focus on the whole patient rather than any particular organ.
