"After the loss of many near and dear ones due to cardiovascular diseases, I developed a desire to work in the field of cardiology to generate awareness in the community about this killer disease and promoting prevention,” Dr. Roy said. “I try to be seen as a partner and a caregiver while my patients try to achieve the goal of having a healthy heart. I derive great satisfaction seeing my patient achieve that goal.”
