Born in Kuwait, Dr.Joel's family immigrated to the United States of America during the Gulf War. As a first generation immigrant, he learned resilience and determination from a very young age. He dreamt of becoming a Physician and leaving his mark on this world through improving the health and well being of others.

He is a Board Certified Internist who firmly believes in making health every individual's primary concern. Even though we live in the most developed country in the world, recent data shows our population as a whole suffers from uncontrolled chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol with worse health outcomes than many third world countries. He wants to change that outlook and work as a Primary Physician to help patients obtain their best health today.
