Ghassan Fraij


Dr. Ghassan Fraij is a board-certified interventional cardiologist based at Arizona Cardiovascular Care in Tempe, Arizona.  After completing his Doctorate in Pharmacy, he earned his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma and completed training in internal medicine and cardiovascular medicine.  He specializes in the diagnosis and management of various cardiovascular conditions including coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, and peripheral arterial disease.  He spends most of his time in the clinic caring for patients, but also spends considerable time managing patients in the hospital by performing various cardiac procedures.  Dr. Fraij has a keen understanding of contemporary pharmacotherapy and guideline-based therapies used to treat cardiovascular disease.  Early in his education, he would develop an appreciation for natural therapies that are used.  He has realized that conventional therapies have their limitations, and certain patients may not tolerate pharmaceuticals.  

In collaboration with East Valley Naturopathic Doctors, Dr. Fraij would like to extend his services to patients seeking integrative therapeutic consultations and primary preventive strategies for cardiovascular diseases. An assessment begins with cardiovascular specific labs, imaging, and a review with your Naturopathic Physician. As indicated by the labs and initial imaging review a second opinion or referral for additional and appropriate cardio testing will be sent to Dr. Fraij. Dr. Fraij seeks to adopt an open-minded approach that emphasizes minimizing disease morbidity and maximizes preventive strategies. It is essential to appreciate the breakthroughs and innovations that have propelled cardiology to the forefront of cutting-edge medicine, but one must also be respectful of natural remedies that have endured through centuries of human existence. Dr. Fraij is eager to broaden his practice scope to serve patients seeking an integrated approach to their health care.
