Ozarks Medical Center Interventional Cardiologist M. Faisal Khan, MD, has
earned board certification in the subspecialty of Cardiovascular Disease
from the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. Khan is also board certified
in Internal Medicine.
Interventional cardiologists provide diagnostic, routine and emergent interventional
procedures for patients with cardiovascular disease. In order to obtain
board certification, a physician must undergo extensive evaluation for
educational and professional standards and demonstrate a commitment to
lifelong learning in their specific specialty.
“We congratulate Dr. Khan for this prestigious distinction and credential,”
said Tom Keller, OMC President and CEO. “We are so pleased to have
an expert heart care team that can provide the best care possible, close
to home right here at OMC.”
Dr. Khan completed a residency in internal medicine at St. Luke’s
Hospital in Chesterfield, Missouri, where he was chief resident. He went
on to complete a fellowship in Echocardiography at the University of California
in San Francisco and Fellowships in Cardiovascular Medicine and Interventional
Cardiology at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
In addition, he spent seven years as a Research Associate in the Department
of Cardiology at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. He joined OMC Heart
Care Services in 2012.
Dr. Khan provides clinical care and performs interventional procedures
in the OMC Cardiac Catheterization Lab. The procedures include using an
angioplasty balloon and/or a stent to open clogged heart vessels that
can cause heart attacks. In addition, he sees patients at a weekly clinic
at Texas County Memorial Hospital.
Prior to coming to OMC, Dr. Khan practiced at the VA Medical Center in
