About Dr. Gaba
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure… and a pound of cure is better than a lifetime of medications." This is Dr. Deepak Gaba’s philosophy when it comes to his patients, and it permeates every aspect of his cardiology practice. “Patients have taught me that if you listen to them carefully, they will lead you to the correct diagnosis. It is up to the doctor to figure out the context in which they are speaking.”
Dr. Gaba decided on a career in Cardiology/Electrophysiology when he took a course in college entitled, Mathematics in Medicine and Biology. “This fascinated me because of the mathematical organization of all biological systems,” he explains. “I like doing the detective work to figure out if a person has an electrical problem with their heart. If they do, then I fix those electrical problems so that they can enjoy a healthier life.”
When asked why he chose to practice at Beacon, he says: “The physicians were genuinely interested in the best outcomes for their patients, and they were genuinely interested in me as a provider because good patient outcomes and patient satisfaction are my priority.” Dr. Gaba also believes that Beacon is well positioned to handle the challenges of the changes in healthcare. “I found this to be a supportive environment to grow my practice in this phase of the new healthcare dynamics.”
That support is key to teaching his patients one vital component of their care: Hope. “I want to educate my patients on what they can do to improve their health – I believe, working as a team with them, we can help them feel better.” He has faith in their ability to do the things they find challenging and adds, “It is hope that can propel them forward to be strong participants in their healthcare goals.”
