About

Bio

I am Dr. Najeeb Al Hallak. I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine at University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Science and an Internal Medicine Hospital doctor. I like to treat sick patients in the hospital and enjoy seeing them progressing to recovery then getting discharge home. I deal with wide variety of Internal Medicine problems, from heart attacks to pneumonia to stomach and colon bleed.
