His clinical specialties include coronary artery disease, heart attack care, heart valve disease and heart failure. He is board-certified in cardiovascular medicine, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology.

A graduate of The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Dr. Khot completed a residency in internal medicine at Stanford University Medical Center followed by a fellowship in cardiovascular medicine at Cleveland Clinic. He was appointed to the medical staff in 2011.

EHART® is a specialized triage and treatment protocol developed by Dr. Khot to reduce the time-to-treatment for heart attack patients who come to the emergency room. This protocol has led not only to improved time-to-treatment but also to an increased rate of survival after the heart attack. The American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology have recognized this protocol as a major advance in heart attack care.

Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

A very good doctor

Waited a little longer than normal once placed in dr office but it gave me time to relax before blood pressure ck

Reviewed on Aug 2, 2021

Nothing to do with Dr. Kmotbut we waited 6 hrs for BUN to come back which was drawn same am,earlier than cardiac CATH. Perhaps this wait could have been avoided if CMP was ordered and drawn week before at Regional facilityand cath team could have viewed BUN and proceeded. A wait of an hour or two is acceptable but a 6 hour wait was excessive and avoidable with better lab scheduling.
