Anushree Agarwal, MD
Assistant Professor

505 Parnassus Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94117

Dr. Agarwal is a cardiologist with special interest in Non-invasive Cardiology, in particular congenital heart disease in adults, pregnancy with heart disease and echocardiography. Her clinical interests include the use of transthoracic, transesophageal and three-dimensional echocardiography in the diagnosis and management as well as to guide the interventional and surgical congenital heart procedures.

Dr. Agarwal's research interests include echocardiography, pregnancy in heart disease, and adult congenital heart disease as well as outcomes research aimed to reduce mortality, morbidity, and to improve the functional status of these patients. More recently she has been using large data methodology to help understand the health care needs of this patient population.
