My name is Ildiko Agoston, MD, FACC and I am an Associate Professor of Medicine at UTHSCSA. I have a great passion for Women?s Health and soon after graduating from Cardiology Fellowship and starting my career in academic medicine I established a Women?s Center promoting comprehensive evidence based care for women at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. When I joined the UTHSCSA in 2011, I developed yet another evidence based women?s program located at the Medical Art and Research Center called The Women?s Comprehensive Health Institute (WCHI). My goal is to coordinate care for women of all ages to help and promote healthy lifestyle and provide screening and treatment for our female patients in a convenient/easy access one stop shop/same day experience. As a cardiologist I provide cardiovascular risk stratification to many women and provide high risk pregnancy expert opinion, incorporating multi-modality cardiovascular imaging in the decision making process( echocardiography, nuclear myocardial perfusion stress testing and exercise tress testing, coronary CTA and calcium scoring as well as cardiac MRI). The WCHI is built on the concepts of patient centered and evidence based approach where disease prevention is in the forefront of our care through teaching and appropriate screening methods.
