Radha Gopalan, M.D. Cardiologist, Acupuncturist and Certified Yoga Instructor Born in northern Sri-Lanka, Dr. Radha Gopalan started his medical education at North Colombo Medical College in 1985. When civil unrest put his studies on hold, he seized the opportunity to become an acupuncturist at the International University for Complementary Medicines in Colombo, Sri-Lanka. In 1990, and already well versed in Eastern and Western philosophies of medicine, Dr. Gopalan transferred to St. Georges University to complete his medical degree. By 1993, Dr. Gopalan's interest in eastern philosophy took him to London, where he worked as an acupuncturist with the acclaimed Dr. Ravi Ponniah. Again, East met West as he observed the integration of Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Osteopathy and herbs in the treatment of patients. Dr. Gopalan returned to the United States for his post-graduate training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology in New Jersey. He?received additional fellowship training in Cardiac Electrophysiology, as well as another fellowship in Heart Transplant at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia. He is also an acupuncturist and certified yoga instructor and is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Heart Transplant and Medical Acupuncture. After working in Scottsdale, Arizona for several years, he now lives in New York City and continues to blend East and West as a Heart Failure and Heart Transplant Cardiologist.
