Why did you choose to become a doctor and how does telehealth fulfil that ambition?

Helping people has always been a passion, ever since I was very young. As I progressed through school and starting thinking about careers, medicine felt like a natural fit. Since becoming a doctor, I’ve enjoyed success in many high- pressure situations and learned to quickly adapt to the rapidly changing nature of medicine. People are only getting more and more busy, so the healthcare profession needs to find ways to make its services more accessible. Moreover, people now feel very comfortable with smartphones and online services, so I see Telehealth as a hugely exciting and useful innovation, which will make it easier for more patients to access high-quality healthcare at their own convenience.

As a care provider, what are you most passionate about?

I’m most passionate about helping people, in a way which is both meaningful and tangible. Patients have a wide range of issues and concerns, my job is about reassuring them that they’re in good hands, and making a real difference to their health and outlook.

It’s my responsibility to empower them to take control of their health and be more aware of problems when they begin, instead of ignoring important signs or symptoms. Prevention is the best form of treatment, and as medical professionals, we must promote healthy living to stop the onset of preventable diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Clinically, Paediatrics and OBGYN are specialties that I very much enjoy. Helping children when they are unwell and developing a relationship with them at a young age is very special. I feel very lucky to see them through their childhood and help reassure their parents when they are at their most anxious. OBGYN can often be quite embarrassing and unnerving for patients, so again, the opportunity to put them at ease, make them feel comfortable and ultimately, improve their condition, is very satisfying.

If you could give your patients one rule to live by, what would it be?

Eat Healthy, Live Active.

Why did you choose to become a doctor and how does telehealth fulfil that ambition?

I grew up looking up to my dad who was and still is my superhero. My dad, who is a well known and established pediatrician back home, has always strived to help people, especially his own. He instilled those values in me and my siblings. I grew up seeing the value that he added to his community and how he was appreciated for it. I strive to be half the man that he is and with his support I took on Telemedicine early on in my career. In an age where the whole world is evolving to become more interconnected and automated it was inevitable for healthcare to evolve and follow in those footsteps. Telemedicine and Telehealth are still in their infancy phases, the huge potential that can be realized from those platforms are enormous and that’s why I joined the visionary and ambitious team of Health At Hand.

As a care provider, what are you most passionate about?

Not only treating and managing disease but also improving the quality of life of my clients. I don’t like to call them patients because our role as healthcare professionals is not only to treat sick individuals but also to promote and advocate healthy lifestyles and life choices for our clients and members of our community.

If you could give your patients one rule to live by, what would it be?

It can be summed up in the following saying by an Islamic historical figure, Salman A Farisi who said: “You have a duty to your Lord, you have a duty to your body, and you have a duty to your family so give each, that deserves, its right.”
