I am an Assistant Professor/Clinical with Department of Family and Community Medicine and Associate Medical Director of MARC Primary Care Center at UT Health San Antonio.
I attended prestigious Allama Iqbal Medical College in Lahore, Pakistan before completing my residency in Family Medicine in San Antonio. I enjoy providing care to patients of all ages and teaching in office and hospital settings. My clinical interests include wellness exams for adults and children, preventive health and minor office procedures.
I am Board Certified in Obesity Medicine and established a Medical Weight Loss Clinic at MARC and started serving patients.
I am of the view that a patient in the room does not mean A Disease or A person But an Opportunity to teach and change the family and community by empowering the person in front of you. I spent as much time possible with my patients trying to help them through their disease condition or health problem.
I strongly believe in returning back to community who we belong; I had been a founding member of a Charity Clinic-ElBari Community Health Center which provides health services to patients who do not have insurance or primary care providers. Every staff member in this clinic is a volunteer taking their time to serve on every Friday and Sunday.
As part of developing interest in research I am one of the Physician Champions for UT Medicine involvement in Millions Heart Project. As Associate Medical Director I was part of the Leading Team involved in the Transformation of Patient Centered Medical Home at MARC recognized by NCQA.
I am Certified in Medical Quality by American Board of Medical Quality and member of American College of Medical Quality and had been leading process improvement projects at clinic level.
The School of Health Professions, in collaboration with UT Health and the Primary Care Center, has established the new UT Health Saturday Clinic and I am serving as Medical Director and involved in the process of establishing this clinic.
