Rishi Menon, M.D. was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri. From high school, he went directly into a combined Bachelor of Arts/Doctor of Medicine program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. After medical school, he completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, where he served as Chief Resident.. He completed his Cardiology Fellowship at Saint Louis University. During his third year, he served as Chief Fellow and then took a position as an Assistant Professor in the division of Cardiology at Saint Louis University.
Dr. Menon moved to the Sacramento area in 2017. He takes pride in working with his patients to treat disease and promote health. He believes in using medications when the scientific data clearly supports it to prevent disease or disease recurrence. However, he acknowledges that there are “gray zones” and seeks to engage in discussions with patients to create a treatment plan based on their values. He draws from personal experience and patient stories to provide guidance and recommendations about lifestyle and exercise. It is his goal to promote health and ideally, reduce medications if possible.
Dr. Menon values the time he takes with his patients, and often runs over the designated appointment times. He tries to respect his patient’s time and appreciates their understanding if he is late. He would like his new patients to be aware of this fact, but assures them that he will spend as much time with them as they need.
He has an interest in heart failure, coronary artery disease and prevention.
Dr. Menon lives in Sacramento, enjoys exercising, reading, spending time with his family and rooting for his favorite teams the Saint Louis Cardinals and the Saint Louis Blues.
