Lufkin Cardiologist Named ‘Super Doctor’
For the sixth consecutive year Ravinder Bachireddy has been recognized as the one of the state’s top cardiologists. The December issue of Texas Monthly named Dr. Bachireddy as a Super Doctor, an honor that is limited to approximately five percent of the region’s active physicians.
Each year Key Professional Media undertakes a multi-phase selection process that includes a survey of doctors, independent evaluation of candidates by the company’s research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area and a good standing and disciplinary check. As part of this evaluation physicians are asked to consider who they would personally choose if they needed cardiology care.
Dr. Bachireddy is featured in the magazine’s special section, “Texas Super Doctor” on pages S-4 and S-8. Additionally, all honorees can be found online at www.superdoctors.com, where selected doctors can be searched by name medical specialty and location.
Dr. Bachireddy along with J.S. Chandra, M.D. founded the Heart Institute of East Texas in 1982. Since then the practice has grown to accommodate eight additional Board Certified Cardiologists. Dr. Bachireddy is Chief of Cardiology at Memorial and Woodland Heights Medical Center.
