EvergreenHealth is pleased to welcome Dr. Ali Sharifian to its Heart Care practice, where he brings extensive experience treating cardiac conditions including valvular heart disease, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, coronary artery disease and others.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Sharifian to EvergreenHealth’s outstanding team of cardiologists,” Bob Malte, EvergreenHealth’s CEO, said in a press release. “His diverse background, accomplished credentials and passion for healthy living make Dr. Sharifian an ideal fit for supporting our health system’s mission of serving patients with high-quality, compassionate care.”
Before pursuing a career in cardiology, Dr. Sharifian served as a firefighter and EMT in Snohomish County. According to Dr. Sharifian, working in these roles helped him discover his passion for serving others and led him to study cardiology, a field in which he felt he could have a profound impact on the lives in his community. Dr. Sharifian treats each patient as if they were a member of his own family and works to ensure that patients understand all aspects of their treatment plans before moving forward.
The physician is trilingual in English, French and Farsi, and is board certified in a range of specialties within heart care, including cardiovascular disease, echocardiology, cardiovascular CT, nuclear cardiology and internal medicine.
Dr. Sharifian attended Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran, before completing his residency at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk. He went on to complete his fellowship at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago.
