EXPERIENCE

She has a way with words and a way of looking at the symptoms first and then relating them to the bodily system involved.

Academically, Dr. Sajedah was an Assistant Professor of Family Medicine in Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar. She was also a lecturer for the Mental Health Foundation course directed for primary health care doctors, an instructor in the course of Pediatrics given by Sick Kids Hospital in Canada, and a lecturer in Dubai Medical College for students during their clinical rotations.
