As a family medicine physician, Dr. Allam enjoys treating patients of all ages and helping them through the many stages of life. As Dr Allam has stated, “I enjoy working with my patients and making a difference. It is rewarding to help my patients reach their health goals and serve as a resource for them.”

    Dr. Allam has completed extensive training which includes receiving his medical degree from Azhar University School of Medicine and completing two residency programs, one in internal medicine and one in family practice. In addition to being awarded Doctor of the Year by the Orange County Medical Association for four years, he has also held numerous leadership roles with the health care industry.
