Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you a bit about my practice, my interests, and my experiences. I am a graduate of Beirut Arab University in Lebanon. I moved to the U.S. in 2008 with my family and completed my residency at the Ghent Family Medicine Residency Program at Eastern Virginia Medical School, and worked for a short period of time at Kaiser Permanente on the East Coast. I recently joined Kaiser Permanente in Southern California and I feel fortunate to be part of an organization that strives always to provide the best-possible care to its members.
I was born in and spent most of my life in Iraq; I come from a simple but hard-working family background. I always was passionate to understand and care for others when I was younger, so I chose medicine as my career . I truly enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds here in Los Angeles.
About my practice
I am passionate about being part of the Kaiser Permanente family, because I enjoy working together with my patients to take care of their health. Team work between physician and patient is a key element in my practice,
How I thrive
I encourage myself, my family, and my patients to practice any kind of exercise: simple walking daily for 20 to 30 minutes, dancing, or playing with your kids in the backyard, or cycling, for example. Relaxation also is important to promote health in body, mind, and spirit. It’s important to take care of ourselves and stay healthy so that we can be there for those we care about.
