The Artisan’s Approach™
An approach to Precision Medicine
Long before health care was a science, it was a craft. And, millennia before doctors were scientists, they were artisans. Even Hippocrates, who’s often considered the father of medicine, referred to medicine as an art, and it’s only in recent decades that doctors have relied primarily on research and formulas to guide them in diagnosing and treating patients.
While science has provided a wealth of tools for physicians to use, I believe we still need to view and practice medicine as an art, for it is, indeed, both a science and an art. Patients aren’t just a set of symptoms in a study, and caring for them involves more than following one-size-fits-all instructions.
I consider myself an artisan. Artisans work at their craft by hand. There’s a personal touch to their creations, and no two are exactly alike. Similarly, no two patients are the same, and as an artisan, I’m not content to follow a cookie-cutter treatment plan. That’s why, as a cardiologist that believes in precision medicine, I’ve developed the Artisan’s Approach™ a means of treating and empowering patients, while recognizing each patient’s individuality and specific heart issues.
Using my Artisan’s Approach™, I’ve created an analogy, called the Heart House, to help you understand this incredible organ in your body. This analogy is essentially a new language, which can be adopted by both cardiologists and patients alike, to help resolve the disconnect patients so often feel with their heart doctors.Buy Now

Precision medicine and golf share similar attributes.
A great golfer can identify the rough, challenging areas of the green—such as where the ball digs into the grass.
After a game of golf where a player hits all his or her shots just right, they go home happy.
That player enjoyed themselves at the game, so naturally, they have a smile on their face, and they are content with their performance.
The same goes for medicine.
Dr. Manchanda believes that medicine and the perfect golf game are the prime examples of what is wrong in medicine today.
When hitting the first golf shot at the course from the driving range, a player uses his or her driver. The goal is simple: to get the ball as close as possible to their target.
Medicine and golf are quite similar in the fact that both have specific rules and a similar mission.
Whether it’s hitting a perfect 200-yard shot to the green or curing heart disease, the basic guidelines combined with the right algorithm will achieve the desired result.
