Prerana Manohar, MD, FACC, RPVI, and Vinayak Manohar, MD, FACC, RPVI share more than just family roots…they also now share an office. Both have recently joined Mercy Health Physician Partners (MHPP) Cardiovascular and are excited about the mission and vision of our organization.
“I am looking forward to being part of a team at Mercy Health whose focus, dedication and passion is
caring for the patient,” said Dr. Prerana Manohar. She is the first female cardiologist at MHPP Cardiovascular, where she specializes in women and heart disease. “I chose this specialty because I love helping people live a stronger, healthier life – and the heart is at the core of that.”
Dr. Manohar attended University of Michigan Medical School and went on to complete her internal medicine residency and fellowship in cardiology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Her experience and interest lies in preventative cardiology. “My philosophy of care is to always listen to the patient. No one knows the patient better than him or herself.”
Her brother, Dr. Vinayak Manohar is an interventional cardiologist at MHPP Cardiovascular. “I am committed to providing personable and compassionate care to my patients which leads to optimal therapy,” said Dr. Manohar in regards to his philosophy of care. “I work with them to customize a treatment plan that is specific to their needs with the end goal of eliminating their cardiac risks and symptoms.”
Dr. Manohar completed his internal medicine residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and is fellowship trained in cardiology and interventional cardiology from William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. He has experience and an interest in interventional cardiology, peripheral arterial intervention, peripheral venous disease and therapeutic procedures, pulmonary hypertension and autonomic dysfunction.
When asked about Mercy Health’s culture he explained, “I am most appreciative of the collaborative culture that Mercy values. My colleagues from all specialties are all kind and genial which encourages multidisciplinary discussion about our patients which ultimately leads to better care and outcomes. I am proud to be part of a community with such values.”
Both physicians enjoy reading in their spare time – Prerana about breakthroughs in in preventative cardiology, while Vinayak is a history buff – searching for old books in used bookstores whenever he gets the chance. When they gather together as a family, dinners consist of organically grown food from Prerana’ s garden which she uses in experimental recipes.
Please join us in welcoming them to the Mercy Health Cardiovascular team!
