As a daughter of two physicians, Dr. Awad’s inspiration to become a physician was seeing the difference her parents made in their small town in Egypt. It was their compassionate care and commitment to the community that led Dr. Awad to choose a career in Internal Medicine.
With more than 10 years of experience as a board certified Internist, Dr. Awad is passionate about what she does. She especially likes the fact that she serves as the “first line” for her patients and is involved in every step of their care. “I believe in developing personal relationships and serving as an advocate for my patients.” says Dr. Awad. “It is important to me to deliver excellence to my patients and I appreciate the trust they have in me to make a positive impact in their life.”
Dr. Awad graduated with honors from Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt and completed her residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Patterson, NJ.
The focus on innovation and state-of-the-art medicine were two of the primary reasons Dr. Awad chose to join Hoag Medical Group. She views her new role as an opportunity to provide a different way of caring for patients – one where there is more time spent on communication, education and prevention.
During her free time, Dr. Awad enjoys traveling, reading and spending time at the beach with her husband and two children.
