His particular areas of expertise are:
Dr Nasis’ approach to every clinical encounter is underpinned by three fundamental strategies to lead to the best possible outcomes. Firstly, his approach to diagnosis and management is always evidence-based. Secondly, his care is patient-centred and personalised to meet the individual’s particular needs. Finally, he provides relevant education to optimise understanding of the condition being treated and to enhance likelihood of adherence to treatment. This often includes lifestyle changes required to prevent development or deterioration of disease, include dietary and exercise modifications, avoiding certain activities, and maintaining a healthy weight.
He is also fluent in Greek and can conduct consultations in Greek, if required.
Dr Nasis was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia and received his medical degree with Honours from the University of Melbourne in 2003. He completed his internship and basic physician training at St. Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne, and in 2008, was accepted into the advanced cardiology training program in Victoria, Australia as the highest-ranked candidate nationally. His cardiology training was based at MonashHeart in Melbourne which is the largest cardiology service provider in Victoria. His training at MonashHeart encompassed two years of general cardiology advanced clinical training and one-year as a non-invasive cardiac imaging fellow. His training experience included all aspects of echocardiography (transthoracic, transoesophageal, stress, three-dimensional) as well as all aspects of cardiac CT angiography.
During his clinical training, Dr Nasis also completed a Doctor of Medicine (MD) thesis in 2011 at Monash University entitled “Advances in Cardiac Imaging with Wide-Area Multidetector Cardiac Computed Tomography”. The results of this thesis demonstrated a high diagnostic accuracy of wide-area CT angiography in detecting coronary artery disease and assessing left ventricular volumes and systolic function, as well as the role of this technology as part of a diagnostic algorithm for the work-up of patients presenting to the Emergency Department with chest pain. This body of research has helped define the diagnostic accuracy and appropriate clinical role of wide-area CT angiography in contemporary clinical practice.
