We are pleased to welcome our new Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Armaghan Soomro, MD, to the Arkansas Heart Hospital family.
Dr. Soomro joined the Interventional Cardiology team after completing his clinical fellowship at UAMS. He earned his medical degree from Dow Medical College where he graduated with special honors. He completed his post-graduate training in Internal Medicine and Clinical Cardiology from Northwell Health/Hofstra School of Medicine-Staten Island.
In addition to patient care, Dr. Soomro shares a keen interest in clinical research and completed a Clinical Research Certificate Program (CRTP) from Drexel University. He has been published in multiple peer-reviewed medical journals and national conferences as well.
He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Adult Echocardiography, Nuclear Cardiology and Vascular Ultrasound.
Changing people’s lives is his motivation as an interventional cardiologist.
“The most rewarding thing in this profession is seeing the impact you have on people,” he said. “It’s very gratifying to know that someone who came in at one of the lowest points, is now moving on to live a thriving, viable life back with their family and friends.”
Dr. Soomro’s approach to patient care is simple but significant.
“I feel it’s really important for a patient to feel that his physician and doctor is someone they can trust, and someone who can guide them through the lowest points of their illness to bring them back to becoming a more viable and healthier person…”
Dr. Soomro strives to be a champion for his patients through every step of their journey.
“I would like patients to feel…that I am an advocate for them, a colleague and someone who is there for them in their journey of healthcare,” he said.
Though only living in Arkansas for a short time, Arkansans have found a place in his heart.
“Working in Arkansas has personally been very gratifying,” he said. “I think the best part about that is the people. I think they’re some of the most sincere people that I’ve come across. It’s gratifying to help these people out in their time of need.”
Outside of work, Dr. Soomro loves spending time with his wife and four-year-old daughter, as well as traveling, exercising and spending time outdoors.
