About

Bio

A health professional with several years of experience in general pediatric and adolescent medicine with international/ global health perspective. I am passionate about issues of public health esp in regions where infant and child mortality due to vaccine preventable diseases and sanitation still remains a major public health concern. I believe that the new generation of doctors should be exposed to get first hand experiences in global health to not only familiarize themselves in recognizing diseases which have become rarer in the West, but threaten to make a comeback due to more frequent international travel, unrestricted borders and rising trends in vaccine refusal. Each physician should strive to share their valuable experience in teaching the newer gen of doctors for a safer tomorrow.

HealthTap member
This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank you Dr. Zuberi. I now can see why orthopedic surgeons do not do the additional surgery. I guessing they don't have the additional training
HealthTap member
This made me feel good. Thanks! I'm still concerned though in what to do about it because it's been close to 12 hours. I'm happy it may just be an allergic reaction.
