    Covenant Health is pleased to welcome Dr. Fawwaz Shoukfeh to the Covenant Medical Group family.

    A Lubbock resident for 41 years, Dr. Fawwaz Shoukfeh graduated from Damascus University Faculty of Medicine. He came to the United States in 1971 and completed his internal medicine residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago.

    Dr. Shoukfeh had his cardiology fellowship training from 1974 to 1977 at Cleveland Clinic, which is consistently ranked as the top cardiology program in the world. While at Cleveland Clinic, he was trained by Dr. Mason Sones, the founder of coronary angiography. He has also had formal training in pacemaker implantation at Cleveland Clinic and was the first cardiologist to implant a permanent pacemaker in West Texas.

    After his fellowship training, Dr. Shoukfeh and his wife Raida moved to Lubbock, TX where he established his own interventional cardiology practice. Dr. Shoukfeh has more than 30 years of experience with cardiovascular research. His extensive participation in clinical trials allows him to offer his patients devices and medication before FDA approval.

    Dr. Shoukfeh cares for all of his patients as if they were his own family. He spends time with each of his patients to ensure that they receive the quality of care needed to keep them healthy.

    In his free time, Dr. Shoukfeh enjoys spending time with his children, grandchildren and he also enjoys traveling.
