Wellness is the cornerstone of my practice...Early prevention, surveillance and modifications of health are easier and more affordable than treatment of disease.

Dr. Sherif Hassan is an internal medicine physician with broad international experience. Trained in the United Kingdom as a Critical Care Physician, he has worked in several Universities’ Hospitals around the world and immigrated to the United States in 1995. He is currently dedicating clinical time towards functional and precision medicine, incorporating integrative medicine with genomic mapping, as well as nutritional and lifestyle management that is tailored to the needs of the individual patient.

Dr. Hassan’s wide and comprehensive experience in medical practice in different international settings coupled with his personal experience as a patient suffering from Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) changed one of his focus areas of medicine to undiagnosed chronic medical disorders. His own Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) went not only undiagnosed but caused him to undergo unnecessary surgeries. Patients with undiagnosed chronic illness may have perplexing symptoms and be frustrated by the process of getting to the cause of illness. As an internist, Dr. Hassan practices functional and precision medicine to identify and treat the underlying cause of illness, foster proper prevention and adapt treatment.

At National Integrated Health Associates, Dr. Hassan will treat medical disorders and dysfunctions with a functional medicine approach and has special areas of interest including cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic cardiology, sleep studies for sleep apnea and sleep disorders, Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS), Medical Tourism and Telemedicine.

Dr. Hassan understands the unique needs of the international patient and uses telemedicine to monitor patients closely while home or abroad and provide care or plan for Tertiary care and Inpatient care in world renowned medical centers and hospitals, or location-specified treatment facilities. He says, “Wellness is the cornerstone of my practice. Physicians are good in the management of acute ailments while chronic ailments and wellness remain to be neglected. Early prevention, surveillance and modifications of health are easier and more affordable than treatment of disease. My patients have access to me via Telemedicine wherever they are, which enables them to be more in charge of their health.”

Dr. Sherif Hassan is currently accepting new patients and treats adults and adolescents age 16 and up. He is committed to providing care for the whole person by addressing the root cause of illness and incorporating leading edge technology and innovative medical and dental services offered at NIHA to promote patient wellness.
