Meet Dr. Sharon Reimold
Heart Imaging Cardiologist
- Holder of the:
- Gail Griffiths Hill Chair in Cardiology
Sharon Reimold, M.D., is a highly experienced cardiologist who trained at Harvard Medical School and specializes in the interpretation of various imaging studies, with a strong emphasis on echocardiograms. In fact, no one in North Texas has read more echocardiograms than she has. But interpreting cardiac images are only part of the story: You have to know what to do with them to really have meaning for patient care.
“The echocardiographer is a little like the radiologist of cardiology, except at UT Southwestern, we also have the clinical care ability,” she says. “It’s really how the information is interpreted and put into clinical practice that makes our medical imaging abilities superior.”
Patients should feel absolutely confident that I’ll have the right answer after reading their echocardiogram, and I’ll know what to do with that answer or result.”
Dr. Reimold is a Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine - Cardiology. She has been recognized as a Super Doctor by Texas Monthly and a Best Doctor by D Magazine.
Many of Dr. Reimold's patients are women who come to see her for a variety of conditions, including vascular heart disease and cardiovascular disorders during pregnancy, as well as preventive cardiac care.
“Some of the women I’ve seen, who had seen other cardiologists, felt like their symptoms weren’t being taken seriously,” she says. “I’m a little more in-tune to the variety of symptoms that women can present with.”
Dr. Reimold’s skill and compassion in caring for patients was recognized in 2012 when she was named the recipient of the Patricia and William L. Watson Jr., M.D., Award for Excellence in Clinical Medicine. The award recognizes a UT Southwestern clinician whose work exemplifies a commitment to outstanding patient care and advancement of innovative medical therapy.
