Mujeeb Jan, MD, Returns to Villa Rica With Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists
Posted Date: 10/21/2011
Mujeeb Jan, MD, a board-certified cardiologist, is returning to Villa Rica and joining the patient care team at Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists.
“My grandfather was a physician, and my parents always told me that going into medicine is a way to have a career doing good deeds,” said Dr. Jan. “Being a physician is very rewarding; it’s a way that I’m able to help people and be an asset to my community.”
Dr. Jan, who has practiced in the United States for more than 20 years, completed an internship and residency at D.C. General Hospital in Washington, D.C., as part of the program at Georgetown University, and he completed a cardiovascular fellowship at Georgetown University Medical Center. He earned his medical degree from Khyber Medical College in Peshawar, Pakistan, and completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar, Pakistan, and a residency in cardiology at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences in Islamabad prior to coming to America. He and his family reside in west Georgia.
Dr. Jan previously practiced in Villa Rica for a number of years with a cardiology practice affiliated with a heart program in Atlanta, and will be returning to the area with Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists.
“In my former practice, there were never the resources to engage the community in the way I would have liked,” said Dr. Jan. “But Tanner is a part of the community – its relationship with the community is genuine. I’m excited about that. I’m far more comfortable practicing here than I would be somewhere in downtown Atlanta.”
At Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialsts, Dr. Jan will join the patient care team of Christopher Arant, MD; Onaje Greene, MD; Shazib Khawaja, MD; and William Rogers, MD. The practice has locations in Carrollton, Villa Rica, Bremen, Mirror Lake and in Woodland, Ala. To make an appointment, call 770.836.9326.
