In Practice in Norfolk since 2006

Dr. Mohit Bhasin has been practicing adult cardiology in Norfolk, Virginia since 2006. He specializes in all facets of general cardiology, diseases of the aorta, and advanced cardiovascular imaging, including the diagnosis and care of adult congenital heart disease patients, serving as co-director of Pediatric Cardiovascular MRI and CT imaging at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters.  

He studied as a Robert Woodruff Scholar in Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, where he then completed Internal Medicine Residency and Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship and served as Chief Cardiovascular Fellow while pursuing two years of specialized training in the field of Cardiovascular MRI and CT imaging. A former George Starbuck Fellow at Boston University in Creative Writing and winner of the William Carlos Williams Prize from the Center for Human Values in Medicine, he has become a recognized national leader in heart and thoracic imaging. 

Dr. Bhasin directs a level III one year apprenticeship for cardiologists in cardiovascular MRI and CT and has trained over 3000 radiologists and cardiologists over 16 years in courses in Virginia, endorsed by the Society of Cardiovascular CT. He is President and cofounder of Innovation Health Services www.ihsmd.org , a digital imaging practice of radiologists and cardiologists committed to care for the vulnerable. He has been voted one of the Top Cardiologists in Virginia by his peers every year for over a decade. 


Hannah Burmeister, Cardiac NP

Hannah Burmeister NP, MSN is a Cardiac Nurse Practitioner who earned recognition for excellence in patient care and integrity-driven professional clinical care, previously managing critical care interdisciplinary healthcare teams in multiple hospital emergency roles, and trained in consultative cardiology and cardiac management with Dr. Bhasin.

She has special interest in cardiac care of vulnerable patients with cardiomyopathy, cardio-obstetrics, resistant hypertension, atrial fibrillation, valvular diseases, and chest pain with risks for coronary disease, among other cardiac problems.

She is the first cardiac NP in Virginia to earn level II credentials in cardiovascular CT angiography and is a member of the American College of Cardiology. She holds two Masters of Science degrees, one from the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore in Clinical Nurse Leadership and one from Georgia Southwestern State University specializing as a Nurse Practitioner. She also earned a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

She is the mother of two children, a proud military wife, and enjoys traveling and making pottery. She is currently accepting new patients.

Why Innovation Cardiology?

  • Highly skilled cardiologists
  • Highly personalized care
  • Highest ethical and professional standards

Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care


Innovation Cardiology is committed to improving the lives of our patients by providing a superior standard in all aspects of cardiovascular care, from simple cardiovascular problems like high blood pressure and preoperative risk assessment to highly complex problems suited for specialized clinics.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol and Familial Risk of Heart Disease
  • Chest Pain and shortness of breath
  • Loss of consciousness and Palpitations
  • Perioperative Risk Assessment
  • Coronary and Valvular Heart disease
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease
  • Aortic Syndromes

Clinic for the Aorta


Our mission is to provide expert risk assessment, medical management and integrated clinical care for individuals and families with thoracic aortic diseases and cardiac valve abnormalities, including those with an enlarged aorta, aortic dissection, connective tissue and genetic aortopathies, bicuspid aortic valve and bicuspid aortopathy, and other congenital vascular disorders. The goal is a well-integrated, consistent treatment approach toward the best outcomes possible for the patient and their family members. Patients and their families are partners with their treatment team and encouraged to make informed decisions. Thus, education is a cornerstone of our care and we ensure that primary doctors, and other referring co-managing physicians, are kept informed every step of the way. Patients with aortic diseases who are diagnosed and managed appropriately can expect to lead relatively normal lives, but lifelong management is required.

  • Evidence-based best medical therapy incorporating the latest research and recommendations, including the ACC/STS Thoracic Aortic guidelines for conditions such as aortic aneurysms, bicuspid aortopathy, aortic dissections, and inflammatory aortopathies. Medications, control of risk factors and lifestyle modifications may slow aneurysm expansion and improve long term outcomes. Multidisciplinary care coordination may be required with specialists in medical genetics, ophthalmology, connective tissue disorders, and surgery.
  • Accurate reproducible aortic imaging by gated MRI and the lowest radiation dose gated CT if necessary, indexed to body surface area and height, and assessed for rate of change. If indicated, extra-aortic vascular imaging for aneurysms, tortuosity, and malformations. Dr. Bhasin has achieved the highest Level III training in noncontrast 3D MR angiography, contrast MRA, and Cardiovascular CT angiography, and reviews all measurements for accuracy. Careful accurate measurements are, beyond symptoms, the best current intervention criteria.
  • Complex pre-surgical risk/benefit analysis in collaboration with surgeons, for continued medical versus elective surgical repair involves size criteria, rate of growth, aortic morphology, underlying causes such as bicuspid, connective tissue, non-syndromic genetic factors, as well as family history, and any concomitant heart or extra-aortic disease.
  • Care transition and coordination between Outpatient and Inpatient, in collaboration with multiple specialists. Post aortic surgery imaging surveillance is important to monitor for complications and additional risks, especially after dissection.
  • Family risk assessment and screening if appropriate. Screening of first-degree relatives of persons with bicuspid aortic valve, Marfan syndrome, or familial thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissections is warranted because of genetic predilection for aneurysms. Family screening is an ACC/AHA class I recommendation for family members with bicuspid aortopathy. Review of any pathology and referral for genetics investigation and connective tissue evaluation for patients with suspected fibrillinopathies or collagenopathies, nonsyndromic genetic disorders are relevant since certain genes can affect other segments of the vascular system and can result in intracranial aneurysms, early onset coronary artery disease, and stroke.
  • For families with children, pediatric cardiovascular evaluation may be recommended.
  • Education and support of patients and their families can include USB key chain drive with prior imaging studies, operative reports and medical records, emergency preparedness kit, and medic alert bracelet.
