Dr. Hussain Ibrahim joins Ozarks Medical Center Heart Care
WEST PLAINS, Mo – Hussain Ibrahim, MD, Board-Certified Interventional Cardiologist recently joined the multi-disciplinary Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Medical Group. Dr. Ibrahim brings over 10 years of clinical experience to OMC Heart Care.
An interventional cardiologist is a cardiologist with additional education and training in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular disease as well as congenital (present at birth) and structural heart conditions through catheter-based procedures, such as angioplasty and stenting. Interventional cardiologists rank among the world's foremost authorities on cardiovascular disease and its treatment.
Dr. Ibrahim completed a fellowship in interventional cardiology at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital, as well as a fellowship in cardiology at the University of Texas Medical Branch. He completed a residency in internal medicine at Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners/Michigan State University where he also served as Chief Resident. Dr. Ibrahim earned his medical degree from Aga Khan University Medical College, Pakistan.
Dr. Ibrahim chose the specialty of interventional cardiology because it allows him to quickly and significantly impact the health of critically ill patients. He can then provide a continuum of care for his patients in the outpatient clinic, which he finds meaningful.
He relocates to West Plains along with his wife, Nashmia Riaz, MD, Board-Certified Endocrinologist. Having worked in various big cities, but growing up in smaller towns, the couple likes the small-town atmosphere of West Plains.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Ibrahim as the newest member of the OMC Medical Group,” says Antony Joseph, M.D, President, OMC Medical Group. “We will continue to expand OMC’s specialty clinics to serve the needs of the area residents and continue to be the healthcare provider of choice in the Ozarks.”
