Pradip J. Morbia, MD, FACC, FCCP, is a cardiovascular disease specialist at Gulf Coast Cardiology Group PLLC in Port Arthur, Texas. Under his leadership, Gulf Coast Cardiology Group has already served more than 100,000 patients in the Mid and South-Jefferson County area. Dr. Morbia is triple board certified in Interventional Cardiology, Cardiovascular Medicine, and Internal Medicine and is a fellow of both the American College of Cardiology and the American College of Chest Physicians.
Dr. Morbia moved to the Port Arthur area from Los Angeles, California, where he had a very busy cardiology practice. Because the traffic in the city did not allow him to reach his patients in a timely manner in an emergency, he decided to move to the smaller city of Port Arthur so that he could provide his patients with the best care available, including emergency care. Prior to being in Los Angeles, he was trained in cardiovascular medicine in the Chicago area at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois. He trained for seven years in different areas of medicine, including a rotating internship in various fields of medicine and surgery. He completed three years of internal medicine residency and three years of the cardiovascular medicine fellowship training program.
Dr. Morbia has been practicing as an interventional cardiologist since 1988. Dr. Morbia was brought in to start the open-heart surgery program at Park Place Medical Center, and he performed the first-ever percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (balloon angioplasty of the coronary artery) at Park Place Medical Center.
To date, he has done more than 25,000 cardiovascular cases. Dr. Morbia is the senior-most interventional cardiologist living and practicing in the Mid and South-Jefferson County area. After establishing himself, he rapidly expanded his practice to Christus St. Mary's Hospital, Mid-Jefferson Hospital, and Doctor's Hospital, which is now Renaissance Hospital.
He has been married to his beautiful wife, Jayshree, since 1982, and he has two wonderful sons, Roshan and Ravi. Roshan went to the University of Chicago for his undergraduate degree, majoring in Mathematics and Biology. Since then, he has graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas, and is set to become a plastic surgeon. Ravi graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and is studying to become a web designer.
