Medical Interests

Medical Philosophy

Since high school, Dr. Adib has been passionate about medicine because he believed – as he still believes today – that it is the most honorable profession in the world.

Dr. Adib forms relationships with his patients based on mutual trust and respect. He partners with them so they are fully involved with their health. Dr. Adib works in every aspect of his patients’ specialty care, and makes sure the continuity of care is seamless as they are transferred back to their referring physician.

Personal Interests
