I am passionate about the specialty of Family Medicine. I specifically enjoy focusing on preventative medicine, obstetrics, musculoskeletal care, including osteopathic manipulative medicine, as well as general and pediatric medicine. I am committed to being a well-rounded general family physician who cares about the overall health and well-being of individuals of all ages.
I was born in Egypt but was raised in North Carolina and Virginia. I received my medical degree from the Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine and went on to complete my residency in San Bernardino County here in California. I have now been living in California for the past 8 years and love it here with no plans of ever leaving. I truly enjoy my job, providing services to women and educating them about their healthcare needs. I believe that one of our most important roles as healthcare providers is to educate our patients so that they may participate actively in their own treatment plan and care.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, cooking, and going to the beach.
I have been a licensed Chiropractor since 2009 and have been freeing people from pain since 2008 in the Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. I use a "whole person approach" when taking care of my patients. By combining the very best hands-on techniques, state of the art physiotherapy procedures, I am able to help you accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health. I have treated various conditions from back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, sciatica, ankle/foot pain, muscular tightness and tension. I have had great results and success in treating these various conditions.
I strongly feel that keeping the body free from subluxations through chiropractic care and living a prudent, well-oriented lifestyle, can significantly boost the bodys natural restorative powers.
I am a culturally competent therapist. My specialties are Pediatric, Adolescent and Family therapy and my theoretical approach is Cognitive Behavioral, Psychodynamic and Family Systems. I focus on client empowerment and coping with mental health issues. I am a proud recipient of the Fulbright and International Peace Scholarship.
My passion is to make a positive impact on a patient's life and assist them with preventative measures so as to live the healthiest life possible. I am dedicated to working with the underserved population and am proud to work in the community I grew up in.
I am a highly skilled and experienced clinician with strong ethics. My patients receive high quality, comprehensive dental care. Along with being compassionate and caring, I have a strong believe in giving back to the underserved population in the community. My dental career encompasses different aspects of dentistry like teaching at a dental school and managing a private clinic, while overseeing and training staff. Patient education is also a very important aspect. My main mission has always been patient care first. Treatment of patients is performed according to the latest evidence based, updated skills. This ensures that the patient's long term oral health is maintained. To make all this possible, the entire dental team, including Dental Assistants play a vital role. The team is what allows us to best serve the patient.
