Cardiologist Brings Her Expertise to the West Branch Community
Board Certified Cardiologist
Aliya Browne, D.O.
Board Certified Cardiologist Aliya Browne, D.O., recently joined MidMichigan Health as the newest member of MidMichigan’s comprehensive heart and vascular team. This team includes cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, as well as vascular, thoracic and cardiovascular surgeons. Dr. Browne currently welcomes new patients to her office located adjacent to MidMichigan Medical Center – West Branch.
As a cardiologist, she works with patients who have a variety of cardiac-related conditions such as coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, peripheral vascular disease, valvular and structural heart disease, congenital heart defects and other complex cardiac conditions. Dr. Browne holds a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease in women.
She completed her medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, Institute of Technology, in Old Westbury, New York. She went on to complete fellowships in non-invasive cardiology at Deborah Heart and Lung Center in Browns Mills, New Jersey and integrative medicine at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
According to Dr. Browne, she has always loved helping others, as well as tinkering and taking things apart. When she first began considering a career in medicine, she thought she was interested in becoming a surgeon based on her fascination with how the human body works and how the systems work together. She also considered the field of obstetrics and gynecology, but her grandmother ultimately influenced her decision to become a cardiologist. “My grandmother died suddenly of a massive heart attack when I was 13,” she said. “I had already known that I wanted to go into medicine, but this solidified my desire to choose cardiology.”
Dr. Browne’s basic philosophy of care stands on the osteopathic tenets that the body has a capacity to naturally heal itself. “As an integrative physician, my philosophy is really based on holistic care,” she said. “This means that I believe that the mind, body and spirit are each essential elements to not only prevent disease from occurring, but also to treat it. This holistic focus allows patients to do the things that they need to do to live longer, stronger, healthier lives.”
Dr. Browne welcomes new patients to her office located on the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center – West Branch at the Seton Cancer Institute, 2431 S. M-30, Suite 200. Appointments may be made by calling her office at (989) 343-1130. Those who would like more information about Dr. Browne may visit www.midmichigan.org/browne.
