Amir Rezvan, MD, MS

Dr. Rezvan serves as a general cardiologist at Grady Health System (Grady Memorial Hospital and outpatient clinics). He is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine, where he is the principal investigator of an NIH and AHA funded basic science lab studying the vascular process that leads to heart attacks and strokes (atherosclerosis). Dr. Rezvan graduated from the cardiology fellowship program at Emory University in 2012. Prior to that, he completed his internal medicine residency at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, where he also earned a Master of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Rezvan received his medical degree from Iran University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran.
