LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin cardiologist is getting attention for the work he is doing in the community.

Doctor Vivek Mangla has received the American Board of Cardiology's award of honor. Mangla has also been designated as the master laureate of the board.

Mangla has been in the Deep East Texas community for 10 years and said he is honored to get the award because it shows the hard work that him and his staff do in an area where heart disease is a high risk.

"I've seen a slight improvement in patients being aware of their heart conditions and not discounting their symptoms and paying attention, but there is still a lot of work to do," Mangla said.

Mangla said he was taken by surprise when he was told he was getting the award.
