(Topeka, Kansas, Sept. 10, 2018) – Stormont Vail Health is proud to announce that two new physicians, Bashar Ababneh, M.D., and Mallory McIntosh, M.D., will be joining our medical team.
Dr. Ababneh will practice as an interventional cardiologist located at the Cotton O’Neil Heart Center, 929 S.W. Mulvane St., in Topeka. To schedule an appointment with him, call (785) 270-4100.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, accounting for nearly one in every four deaths. While those statistics may be alarming, that is one of the key reasons that Dr. Ababneh entered cardiology.
“Heart disease can be scary,” Ababneh said. “For me, it is rewarding to be able to help patients and see the relief on their faces after they have been struggling with heart conditions.”
Dr. Ababneh received his medical degree at the Jordan University of Science and Technology, Irbid, Jordan, in 2007. He completed his internal medicine residency at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas, in 2012, and his atherosclerosis and lipids fellowship at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, in 2013. He completed his adult cardiovascular fellowship at the Louisiana State University Health Science Center, New Orleans, Louisiana, in 2016, and his interventional cardiology fellowship at the LSU Health Science Center, in 2017.
Dr. McIntosh will practice as a pediatric physician located at Cotton O’Neil Pediatrics Urish, 2860 S.W. Mission Woods Drive, Suite B, in Topeka.To schedule an appointment with her, call (785) 270-4326.
One of the aspects of primary care that Dr. McIntosh enjoys is how as a physician, she becomes an extension of her patients’ families.
“Primary care is all about relationships, it’s very personal,” McIntosh said. “I enjoy earning the trust of my patients and families so that we can partner together toward their best health.”
Dr. McIntosh received her medical degree at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Kansas City, Kansas, in 2015. She completed her pediatric residency at the Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2018.
