Dr. Tapan Godiwala is a non-invasive cardiologist who specializes in the management of coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, and the medical management of vascular disease.

Dr. Godiwala is a North Carolina native who received his undergraduate and medical degrees from East Carolina University. He is returning to his home state after practicing cardiology in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He completed his internal medicine residency in New York City at Mount Sinai and cardiology fellowship in Baltimore at the University of Maryland.

The immediate gratification of treating acutely ill patients with cardiac disease in the hospital, while simultaneously preventing and managing heart disease as an outpatient attracted Dr. Godiwala to cardiology.

Dr. Godiwala is excited to return to North Carolina and work to improve the cardiovascular health in our community. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, exercising, and spending time with his two young boys and wife.
