About

Bio

I finished my medical school at Jordan University of Science and technology. I then did my residency at Hope Children Hospital/ University of Illinois at Chicago. I worked as a Hospitalist in chicago for two years and then moved to Midland, Texas and has been working there for the last 16 year. I am the chief of staff-Elect at Midland Memorial hospital and chairman of quality control committee. I have set many policies and procedures about many evidecne-based practices, including Hypoglycemia protocol, sepsis protocols, asthma protocols, among many. I enjoy personal communication with my patients and enjoy building rapport and taking care of them as a whole patient.
