Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC), UAE


I completed pediatric residency followed by pediatric cardiology fellowship in USA in 2009. During fellowship, I acquired additional skills for fetal echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography. I was an assistant professor at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Wayne State University from 2009 to 2011. I joined the faculty of the Penn State College of Medicine/Penn State Hershey Medical Center in 2011 as an assistant professor of Pediatrics and Radiology in the division of pediatric cardiology.   Before joining Penn State Hershey Medical Center, I acquired further training in cardiac MRI at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Additionally, I have completed multi-slice cardiac CT angiography training in 2014.

In 2016, I moved from USA to Abu Dhabi and joined Sheikh Khalifa Medical City as a pediatric cardiology consultant. Here at SKMC, I worked to develop and expand fetal echocardiography, cardiac MRI and cardiac CTA program. Currently, I am the only one pediatric cardiologist with expertise in advanced cardiac imaging in children in all SEHA facilities. At SKMC, I perform more than 200 advanced cardiac imaging and it is growing every year.

I have established myself as an expert noninvasive imaging specialist. My current area of expertise includes transthoracic echocardiography, 3D echocardiography, fetal echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, cardiac MRI and cardiac CT angiography in addition to general pediatric cardiology. I am board certified in American Board of Pediatrics, American Board of Pediatric Cardiology and National Board of Echocardiography- USA. As a clinician-educator, my primary focus is on the delivery of optimal patient care as well as the teaching of fellows, residents and medical students in addition to continuing my scholarly activities and community services.
