Shahbaz A. Malik, MD, MBBS

Dr. Malik wanted to be a doctor since he was a small child. He fell in love with cardiology specifically because he found the movement of the heart, along with its valves, fascinating. When this is coupled with the resilience and steadfastness of the organ, which beats some 2 billion times during an average lifetime, it's hard to imagine anything more inspiring.

Dr. Malik's chosen specialty of Interventional Cardiology allows for an opportunity to immediately make a difference in a patient's care. "We continually walk a tightrope in the cardiac catheterization laboratory – a voyage I'm thrilled to be on, and one through which I feel most privileged to have our remarkable team and crew with me at all times," he said.
