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
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.
