Dr. Daniel Osimani grew up watching his father work as a physician. He felt inspired and called to help people in the same way his father did, so he began his educational career pursuing the family physician tract. However, during his internship at the University of Illinois Medical Center, he grew interested in cardiology.
“Cardiology is one of those rare instances where you can heal people,” Dr. Osimani said. “With so many other specialties, you can only prevent or lessen the effects of illnesses. But, with cardiology, I can actually solve the problem.”
Dr. Osimani earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. From there, he completed his internship and residency at the University of Illinois Medical Center, where he was also a chief resident and where he completed his cardiology fellowship. Previously, Dr. Osimani worked as a staff cardiologist at both the Clinical Cardiology Consultants in Melrose Park, Illinois and Lewis Gale Montgomery in Blacksburg, Virginia.
“I love being able to listen to people’s problems and make them feel better. Every morning I get up with the extreme privilege of being able to help people,” Dr. Osimani explained.
Outside of the office, Dr. Osimani makes delicious pizza. He also loves to garden, fish, hike, travel, and walk. He and his wife met in high school, went to their senior prom together, and now have four children. All four are out of the nest and following careers in business, occupational therapy, and more.
