  • Biography


    Dr. Assaad's philosphy of practice is to treat the whole patient, mind, body and soul. He believes that the disease does not define the patient. When Dr. Assaad is not visiting patients, he enjoys playing a variety of musical instruments, traveling, pen water diving and taking photographs of nature.
