Question US residency for postgraduates IMGS

Hi, many of the postgraduate IMGs decides to take US route after they are done with MD/MS from their home countries. I am one of them i hv recently finished internal medicine residency and am a certified physician in india, I graduated in 2009. I would like to know will my home residency experience help for IM residency in US?, my dream is to become a cardiologist and i also have heard that they prefer fresh graduates if i mention this postgraduation qualification will it offset that disadvantage and how should i bring it about? I am planing to finish all the steps and apply in 2014-15. your comments are highly valuable..

It has become very hard. Things are not easy here.Better stay in your county and serve deprived people there. Its waste of time and money for IMG old graduates even with good score and experience.
