About Dr. F. Khan Pohlel

I am married and have one daughter. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love being outdoors and have fun running, hiking, fishing and hunting.


I believe every patient deserves the time and attention when discussing their most complex heart conditions. I feel a physician should spend the time to educate patients so they can make an informed decision to undergo invasive procedures. I strive to provide this to all my patients.
