Bradenton Cardiology Center announces the addition of two new physicians to its team.
Mohammed K. Saghir has joined the full-service heart center as a general cardiologist and Daniel E. Friedman is now practicing with the group as a cardiac electrophysiologist. They make up a team of 11 Bradenton Cardiology Center physicians.
Dr. Saghir conveys diverse abilities in the treatment of all aspects of cardiovascular diseases. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology, Dr. aghir attended the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis where he earned his medical degree as well as a Master of Science in Biology. He completed his residency in internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic and was awarded a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship in cardiovascular diseases, also at Washington University.
Saghir has published several medical textbook chapters and journal articles on cardiovascular disease management and is active in research. He was also the recipient of the Edward Massie Prize for Excellence in Cardiology.
Dr. Daniel Friedman is one of the area’s only fellowship-trained ablation specialists — a minimally invasive procedure designed to eliminate or reduce the unpleasant symptoms of atrial fibrillation like shortness of breath, fatigue, or weakness. He completed his internal medicine fellowship at the Mayo Clinic and his cardiovascular disease fellowship at Tulane University. He then completed an electrophysiology fellowship at St. Louis University where he specialized in all aspects of implantable cardiac rhythm devices, nuclear cardiology, and advanced ablation techniques for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. After his training, Dr. Friedman served as an Assistant Professor of Medicine at St. Louis University. Friedman is an experienced electrophysiologist and has practiced in the area since 2009, always with an eye to bettering quality of life for patients with safe and effective care.
Bradenton Cardiology Center, founded by George Thomas and Ballard Smith in 1984, is located on 316 Manatee Ave. West. For more information, visit the website or call 941-748-2277.
