This is my Story

During my medical school in Egypt, I joined a handicapped care provider team, as a volunteer, which was affiliated to the Coptic church and served ill poor patients in underserved areas. I then realized that an optimal patient care is beyond medical knowledge and that emotional and spiritual wellbeing is as important.
Being in Memphis for couple of years during my training at UT, I was fascinated by the friendly staff at Church Health and the care they provide for the working uninsured population. I am honored to be part of the Church Health family
