OMC interventional cardiologist earns board certification in cardiovascular disease

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 Grand Junction, Colorado; at Mountain West Medical Center in Tooele, Utah; at Ogden Regional Medical Center in Ogden, Utah; and at Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo, California.

Dr. Khan and his wife, Samina, have two young children Aliza and Huzayl. In his free time, Dr. Khan enjoys sports, traveling and reading.
