Mesa View Regional Hospital is pleased to welcome Cardiologist Mekdelawit Aschenaki, M.D.,FACC (pronounced ahh-shen-aki), as an independent member of the medical staff. Having cardiology services available full time is a first for Mesquite. She is available Monday through Friday and sees patients at Mesa View Medical Group. Dr. Aschenaki recently moved her family to Mesquite from New Orleans. “I look forward to making Mesquite my home,’ said Dr. Aschenaki. “I believe in long term relationships with my patients and encouraging healthy lifestyles,” she continued.
Dr. Aschenaki received her Fellowship in Cardiology from the Tulane University School of Medicine, Heart and Vascular Institute in New Orleans. She began her education by attaining her undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Biology in Southern Nevada, and then earned a Doctor of Pharmacy from the Creighton University School of Pharmacy in Omaha, Nebraska. She received her MD, from Rush University Medical School in Chicago and completed her Internal Medicine Residency at the prestigious and nationally acclaimed Boston University Medical Center.
She is passionate about getting to know her patients and working with them one on one to help them manage their conditions. She treats each patient like she would a family member and believes that strong, ongoing relationships are critical to successful long-term positive outcomes.
She is no stranger to Southern Nevada, having gone to school in Las Vegas. With family in the area she loves the small town environment of the Mesquite community. When she is not seeing patients or spending time with her family, she enjoys reading, running, riding horses and travelling.
“Welcoming a full time cardiologist to our community is a delight,” exclaimed Patty Holden, CEO for Mesa View Regional Hospital. “We are pleased that patients will benefit from having consistent cardiology services so close to home,” Holden concluded.
Dr. Aschenaki is now accepting new patients. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Mesa View Medical Group at 702-346-0800 or visit MesaViewMedical.com.
