Cardiologist Dr. Sania Khan has joined the medical team at St. Bernards Heart & Vascular. Dr. Khan arrives at St. Bernards after completing a Cardiovascular Diseases Fellowship at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.
Dr. Khan, a native of Pakistan, graduated from medical school in Karachi in 2012 and subsequently completed an Internal Medicine Residency at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y.
Dr. Khan expressed her enthusiasm to continue helping heart patients in the Mid-South region, where heart disease remains the number one cause of death.
“Heart disease has generational impacts here, from the genetic component to lifestyle and environmental factors,” she said. “As Cardiologist, I believe our work fundamentally changes how patients approach these risk factors as well as their treatment options should they face a diagnosis.”
Dr. Max Arroyo, Interventional Cardiologist with St. Bernards Heart & Vascular, said the addition of Dr. Khan further solidifies St. Bernards as the region’s premier cardiovascular provider.
“Dr. Khan has international cardiovascular training,” Dr. Arroyo said. “She’s practiced overseas, in the Northeast United States and most recently in the South. She knows the challenges our patients face, and she’s ready to meet them. Her presence will only grow the capabilities we have at St. Bernards.”
A published researcher, Dr. Khan holds certifications with the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in Internal Medicine, the National Board of Echocardiography and the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology. She is also board eligible with ABIM in Cardiovascular Disease.
In her spare time, Dr. Khan is active in community and volunteer work. She enjoys music and playing softball and netball. She lives in Jonesboro with her husband, new St. Bernards Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Babar Khan and their daughter, Zara.
