“What We Do” Wednesdays on the Heart Blog! At First Coast Cardiovascular Institute, our patients are family. That’s why we want you to get to know the team caring for you. Every Wednesday, we’ll spotlight a different provider, service or initiative to share with you. This week, meet Dr. Lamba, world-renowned Interventional Cardiologist.

Dr. Lamba began his formal education at the University of Pune in Maharashtra, India. After moving to the United States, Dr. Lamba enrolled at the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio.

Dr. Lamba also completed a Fellowship in Heart Failure & and Cardiac Transplantation at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and learned about Interventional Cardiology at St. Joseph Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. “I have always been fascinated with the heart,” says Dr. Lamba, “My father is also a physician and I saw, through him, how much you can help people.”
Outside of Clinic
Dr. Lamba enjoys hitting the golf course outside of clinic! He has golfed all over the United States and in Scotland, England, Thailand, Japan & Hong Kong just to name a few.
Hear what his patients are saying!
“If I were a rich person, I would take out a full page ad in the newspaper and tell the world how great you are. If I were a rich person, I would hire a plane to write across the sky how great you are. If I were a rich person, I would rent a billboard that would tell the world how great you are. Alas, I am not a rich person but I can write a letter that tells how great you are.
This year my husband [Ed] and I will enjoy celebrating our 50th anniversary. It is my firm belief without the care afforded to him, we would not be so lucky.You are a credit to the medical profession as well as mankind. My world has been made better for knowing you.”
