About Me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. Thank you for stopping by. I am family physician, and I look forward to meeting you.


I was born in Syria and grew up in Montreal, Canada. I attended University of Montreal School of Medicine where I completed my residency and training, and then moved to California in 2007. I truly enjoy family practice. I am married with two energetic children. I enjoy hiking, bike rides, the beach, and church activities.

About my practice

I am fluent in Arabic and French, and I truly enjoy meeting and caring for a diverse group of patients. At the East County San Diego clincs where I practice, I am very lucky to be practicing with many talented physicians and energetic and devoted staff.

How I thrive

I take a very simple approach to living well: I feel it's important to care for body and mind. Going on long hikes with friends, gardening and stretching regularly goes a long towards staying fit. Also, I find that such activities help to clear my mind and reduce the stress we experience during our daily lives. I always say: keep it simple and get outside (without your mobile phone)!
