Dr. Mohamad Hassan completed his medical education in 2000 at Tishreen University in the city of Latakia, located in western Syria on the Mediterranean Sea. From there he moved to Canada where he earned his license to practice in that country. In 2003 he moved to El Paso where he completed a three-year residency in pediatrics at Thomason Hospital through Texas Tech University. Dr. Hassan obtained his board certification in Pediatrics from the American Board of Pediatrics in 2008.
Dr. Hassan has been working in Beeville at the Community Action Center creating a state-of-the-art pediatric clinic. He has launched a number of programs there to help children and their families take control of managing their health. One of the most successful programs is the “Biggest Loser Program” for youngsters who are overweight, who have diabetes or who are at risk for developing diabetes. He employs regular well-child visits to monitor for problems such as language or developmental delays.
Dr. Hassan chose to practice pediatric medicine because he feels very strongly that health problems can be prevented by giving children the tools they need early in life to make the right choices throughout their lifetime.
Dr. Hassan resides in Corpus Christi with his new wife.
