Specialties:

Interventional Cardiology/Structural Cardiology
Cardiovascular Disease
Echocardiography

In 1996, my parents immigrated to Canada from Iran in hope of providing a better future for me and my sister.  I was in my last year of high school when we moved to Canada and I did not know a single word of English.

My passion for Mathematics, Physics, and Biology took me towards the Engineering field at first.  I greatly enjoyed problem solving and the complexity of the field, however once I graduated with an Engineering degree and started working in the field, I realized the lack of human interaction did not give me the personal satisfaction to continue in that career.  Therefore, I decided “to take the road less traveled by” — Robert Frost – “and that made all the difference.”

I found several similarities between Chemical Engineering and Interventional Cardiology.  I was able to find the perfect balance between a job that challenges me intellectually and one that gives me the ability to save lives.

Cardiology is a fascinating sub-specialty of medicine that has seen many fast-growing advancements in the last couple of decades.  Procedure such as coronary stenting to minimally invasive valvular surgeries to great medical therapy and screening tools, all of which offer patients the ability to have a better and longer quality of life.  I am very excited to be part of this and see further growth in ground breaking technologies.

Personal Background:

Dr. Julia Ansari was born and raised in Iran until age 16.  Her parents immigrated to Canada in 1996, and after she learned English in a short time, she was able to graduate with high honors from high school.  Thereafter, her parents moved to New Jersey where she earned her degree in Chemical Engineering from the Rutgers University with a 3.75 GPA.  After working as an Engineer for 6 months, she decided to pursue a career in medicine.  After completing medical school and finishing her residency in Hahnemann, PA, she continued her Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology fellowship at Baylor college of Medicine. She joined Ogden Regional Medical center in Utah as the Cath lab director and started the CHIP program which included Impella assisted PCI and CTO interventions.  She also started the PFO program and contributed and participated in structural cases in the sister hospital.  Her hard work earned her the Top Doctor Award in 2018 and 2019.

Dr. Ansari’s desire to advance her skills and knowledge in structural heart/peripheral intervention lead to further training in the field in California.

She has joined Advanced Cardiology group in March 2021 and desires to continue to serve her patients and their families as well as continue to make her marks in her medical field.
