Meet Dr. Sameh Moawad

— Dr. Moawad could be called doctor, twice. Following his allopathic or M.D. degree from the University of Alexandria Medical School, Egypt, Moawad completed his osteopathic physician education to also attain a D.O. degree at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. He is Board Certified as an osteopathic physician.

“The D.O. path added not only medical knowledge but philosophy and culture,” explains Moawad. “It is an American version of medicine that reaches out to the human spirit, soul and body.”

Medicine, says Moawad, who is also a proponent for the advantages of the primary care physician in coordinating patient care, is both science and art.

His practice encompasses a full spectrum of age groups, from neonates and children to adult and geriatric medicine.

“A primary care physician should be part of the family,” he maintains. “The family physician should know the patients, their families, their occupations. They should spend time with them. That is what is unique about family medicine.”

For more information about Dr. Moawad’s practice, located at 1902 Harper Road, contact his office at 304-250-0417.
