Morris Hospital Cardiovascular Specialists adds fourth cardiologist

January 31, 2017, MORRIS, IL – Board certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist Muhammad Marwali, M.D., Ph.D., has joined Morris Hospital Cardiovascular Specialists.

As an electrophysiologist, Dr. Marwali has special expertise in the diagnosis and management of heart rhythm conditions and implantation of cardiac devices such as pacemakers, defibrillators and implantable cardiac monitors. Additionally, he helps patients with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, blood pressure management, heart failure, circulation problems of the lower extremity, and cholesterol management.

The addition of Dr. Marwali strengthens the team of cardiologists that includes Dr. Syed Ahmed, Dr. G. Steinar Gudmundsson and Dr. Athar Saeed. Together, they diagnose, treat and manage cardiovascular conditions at their Channahon, Dwight, Morris and Ottawa offices.

“Morris Hospital Cardiovascular Specialists has excellent individuals, shows great spirit and works well as a team,” Dr. Marwali says. “I was impressed to see Morris Hospital has been providing high quality care for the community for more than a century, and being selected as a Top 100 Hospital shows that it provides outstanding care for its patients.”

A native of Indonesia, Dr. Marwali attended medical school at the University of Indonesia in Jakarta. He completed an internal medicine residency at Wayne State University in Detroit, and acquired his Ph.D. in cellular, molecular biology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.  He also completed fellowships in research cardiovascular medicine, clinical cardiovascular medicine and electrophysiology. He is board certified in cardiovascular medicine, internal medicine, cardiac electrophysiology and echocardiography.

“I was interested in cardiology because heart disease is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the adult population,” Dr. Marwali says. “Through treating and caring for heart disease patients, my hope is I can have the greatest impact in improving the general well-being and health of the community. Caring for heart disease is very rewarding to me since successful therapy can lead to saving lives.”
