Andrew J. Luisi, Jr., MD, is a board-certified cardiologist with the UT Health East Texas Heart and Vascular Institute in Athens who wants to empower people to take charge of their health. His goal is to provide his patients the knowledge and means to help prevent and treat heart disease.
“I chose to specialize in cardiology because heart disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States,” he said. “I want to help my patients stay heart healthy.”
As the son of both a physician and an educator, medicine has always been a part of Dr. Luisi’s life. “I enjoy both treating my patients, and am passionate about teaching and training future healthcare providers,” he said.
Dr. Luisi chose to focus on primary prevention of heart disease and cardiovascular imaging, along with an expertise in nuclear cardiology.
