About Me

Gatha Nair, MD, is a cardiologist at RUSH University Medical Center who specializes in heart failure and transplant care. Nair completed a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at RUSH and a fellowship in advanced heart failure and transplant at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She returned to RUSH as an attending physician in 2023. “My experience at RUSH during fellowship training was remarkable due to the strong mentorship, supportive faculty, diverse clinical pathology and complex patient population,” she says. “I knew that I wanted to continue to work and grow professionally in this environment.”

Nair is board-certified in cardiovascular disease and internal medicine. Her care philosophy is “to provide compassionate, equitable and evidence-based, patient-centered care for all our patients, with a particular focus on the advanced heart failure patient population, with the ultimate goal of improving their quality of life.”
