Dr. Bangash says her interest in medicine began at a very young age. After her father experienced heart problems she developed a special interest in cardiology. She finds it gratifying to help patients by improving their health and consequently their quality of life.

Her favorite part of being a cardiologist is the daily interaction with her patients. “My patients tell me I’m very approachable and that it is easy for them to share their symptoms and concerns with me. I like to get to know each patient and customize a treatment plan that makes them fully understand the disease and its available treatment options to improve their condition and get them back to enjoying life fully,” she said.

Bangash obtained her medical degree from Khyber Medical College. She completed a fellowship in Cardiology at Aurora Sinai and Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Centers, University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her education and experience are extensive, including multiple fellowships in Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Medicine, and Advanced Heart Transplant/Heart Failure. She is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Cardiology and holds a certification in CT Angiography. She cares for all types of cardiovascular disease including arrhythmia, heart failure, coronary artery disease, electrophysiology issues, and has a keen interest in women’s cardiac health.

Allen’s interest in medicine began when he was a child and his interest in OB/Gyn was solidified with the birth of his own two children while in college and then medical school.

“The journey from the time a couple becomes pregnant until the birth of their new family member is an uncertain one. It can be very anxiety provoking and even scary. I enjoy being a part of this and helping people through it.” Allen said. “Having parents fully trust you is both a heavy responsibility and a privilege. I love being able to guide parents through difficult times and then having the opportunity to be a part of bringing their newest family member into the world. I have the very fortunate experience of being both a provider and a parent. There is nothing else in the world like it.”

Allen obtained his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, West Indies. He completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Indiana University in Indianapolis, and is a diplomat of the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
