Physician Profile

About

I grew up in the Middle East – in Jordon – in a family of physicians. My dad is a physician and I have three brothers who are physicians. So it didn’t take much for me to realize this was the path I would choose as well.
After training in internal medicine, cardiology, interventional cardiology and peripheral intervention in New Jersey, I moved to Johnson City in 2005. The plan was just to stay here for a year or two and move on… I have now lived here for 10 years! While living here, we found that Johnson City is a great place for a family and to raise our children. To me it is home now. We love the outdoors, the changes of the seasons and the very nice people.
With all the good things Johnson City has to offer it also is located in a region where there is a lot of heart disease. Because of this, the area is in need of expertise from highly trained and skilled people to take care of all our patients seeking cardiovascular care.
I live by the Hippocratic Oath – to do my best and do no harm. I remember when I was in medical school one of my professors would tell us, “the patient is your textbook.” Actually the patient is even better than a textbook for a physician. The patient has the story and the doctor must listen to the patient…this is a rule I stand by.
My interests away from work include spending time with my wife and three children and playing tennis with my kids. We also play a mean game of ping-pong. My children are professional swimmers so, even though I like swimming, I cannot keep up with them. My older son I also enjoy range shooting… definitely a hobby I picked up in East Tennessee.
