I always thought of medicine as a lifestyle. I chose internal medicine because of how complex and interesting it is; but most importantly, because of how the patient shapes the heart of the practice. I believe that good communication with patients to make them feel safe, heard and understood is as important as the medical treatment guidelines.
I also believe that internal medicine, as a science, is tailored to each patient's needs and situation. During your visit, I will do my best to make you feel safe and to explain to the best of my abilities the current clinical condition. With good communication, you and I will draw up a treatment plan that satisfies standards of care and your valued opinion.
I grew up in Beirut, Lebanon. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, playing racquetball and hiking.
