Cardiovascular Disease, Electrophysiology
Dr. Osama Niazi is Board Certified in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Disease, Echocardiography, and Internal Medicine. He completed his Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship at New York University where he served as the Chief Fellow. He completed his Cardiovascular Disease fellowship and his Internal Medicine Residency at Rutgers University: New Jersey Medical School where he also served as Chief. He completed his undergraduate education at Arizona State University and earned his Doctorate of Medicine Degree from the A.T. Still University of Health Sciences.
Dr. Niazi specializes in ablation of supraventricular, atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. He also has expertise in cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) and implants pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization devices. In addition to implantation, he also has extensive experience in extraction of CIEDs.
Dr. Niazi believes in shared decision making when it comes to management of his patients. He believes that both patients and physicians work together to reach a desired goal.
