Dr. Maranian grew up in Natick, Massachusetts outside Boston. After medical school at Georgetown University, he did his internal medicine and cardiovascular training in the United State Air Force. Following training he remained on faculty at Wilford Hall in San Antonio from 2003-2007, directing the pacemaker and lipid clinics, as well as training fellows in cardiac catheterization and pacemaker implantation. He deployed twice to Iraq, in 2003, and in 2006 as a critical care air transport team physician.

Dr. Maranian separated from the Air Force to join Prince William Cardiology Associates in 2007 after ten years of active duty service service. He has served on a number of committees at both Prince William and Fauquier hospitals to try to improve quality of care for our admitted patients. He served as chairman of the Department of Medicine at Fauquier from 2010 to 2012 and is the current president of Fauquier Hospital’s medical staff. Dr. Maranian has also been chosen by his peers as one of Washingtonian Magazine’s Top Doctors in 2012 and 2014, plus one of Northern Virginia Magazine’s Top Doctors in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014!

Dr. Maranian and his wife, Robin, have four children – Elizabeth, Peter, Julia, and Matthew. He enjoys running, watching dumb comedies and rooting for his Boston sports teams

Prince William Cardiology has taken excellent care of me for twenty years. During that time I have happily attended births, baptisms, graduations, weddings and anniversaries.Thank you Prince William Cardiology!
