Accepting new patients
Hello, I am Board Certified, through American Board Medical of Internal Medicine, in both Oncology and Hematology and have been in practice since 2002. I finished medical school at the University of Damascus and graduated with high honors. Then I completed my Internal Medicine residency at St Luke's Hospital, an affiliate of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. After residency, I practiced Internal Medicine in rural Tennessee to help the undeserved. Throughout training and private practice, I developed a keen interest and passion for Oncology because the field of cancer medicine was rapidly advancing. This led me to the University of Pittsburgh where I completed a Fellowship in Medical Oncology and Hematology. I am a proud member of several professional societies, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Society of Hematology, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, and the European Society of Medical Oncology. I am married and have two sons. In my free time, I enjoy singing in my church's choir, playing guitar, and golfing.
A diagnosis of cancer can be one of the scariest events in your life. I want you to know that you are in good hands, and I will do whatever I can to take care of your cancer treatment. Your input is very crucial and I will work with you and your family on the best course of treatment. I am passionate about improving and advancing the field of oncology through research, and I encourage my patients to seek treatment in clinical trials when appropriate. I work with a talented team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgical specialists who meet weekly for a multidisciplinary review of cancer patients to ensure all options are being considered.
