Physician Profile

About

I am originally from Lebanon. I grew up in a small town and moved to Beirut for medical school. While there, I met my husband, who was also my classmate, and we have since shared an ongoing interest in medicine and helping sick patients.

While in medical school, we researched the best residency programs and started interviewing in different places in the U.S. We fell in love with Pittsburgh and both made it to University of Pittsburgh Medical Center training programs. We were very happy to train in an institution was placed on the Honor Roll by the U.S. News. We loved the people in Pittsburgh, bought our first house there, and then welcomed our first baby girl, Yara, in a city that we now call our hometown.

After training, we decided to join our classmates and close friends and moved to the Tri-Cities area. We found out that living here is highly rewarding. People always smile, and everybody is available to help. We had our son and daughter, Ryan and Mia, at Johnson City Medical Center. We love the people and the nature in this area. While my husband was training at East Tennessee State University, I worked at Bristol Regional Medical Center. However, after he finished his training we moved to Abingdon, where I enjoy working in the Magnolia Office and the First Assist Urgent Care. I love practicing as a primary care physician and helping people of all ages in my community. I am also very excited to participate in a new family medicine training program in Abingdon that begins in July 2015.

Away from work, my family keeps me busy. We enjoy biking on the Creeper Trail, swimming and fishing in the lake. We love the family outdoor activities that we missed in big cities in the past.
