Dr. Abbasi is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and is the Hospitalist Medical Director at Eisenhower Medical Center. He has been successful in recruiting a division consisting of 12 hospitalists who, working as a group, take care of more than 70+% of the admissions to the medical service at the hospital. Many of the hospitalists also serve as the Residents’ Attendings for the inpatient service. Dr. Abbasi has been outstanding in organizing the team so that it provides inpatient care on a 24/7 basis. The advantage for the teaching program is the presence of an attending physician to work with the night team in the new Night Call schedule for Residents. Many of the attendings for the Resident Services during the day will be our excellent Hospitalists. Dr. Abbasi is the recipient of many scholarship awards for academic excellence. In addition, he has been voted “Physician of the Month” at Eisenhower Medical Center twice, for his excellent and compassionate care of patients.
