About Dr. Yaseen Dr. Zuhair H. Yaseen believes that being a physician is the finest and most rewarding profession. “For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a doctor,” he says. “I was raised and nurtured to achieve that within a caring family.” Now, Dr. Yaseen practices that care with his gastroenterology patients. “Taking care of patients is the only job I know. Gastroenterology is about disease prevention and maintaining the health of people as much as it is about treating medical conditions.” Dr. Yaseen earned his medical degree at Tishreen University Medical School in Latakia, Syria. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency and Gastroenterology Fellowship at Michigan State University. He also worked at Mayo Clinic for seven years. “I chose this specialty to combine intellectual skills of being a physician with technical skills of procedures. I make a difference applying knowledge and technical skills at the same time, while also dealing with health and disease.” While the gastroenterology field – and medicine as a whole – is evolving, Dr. Yaseen remains focused on what the patient needs are. “The health care profession still needs a personal touch, which the digital age has struggled to maintain,” he says. “COVID taught us how we are all vulnerable, and we have to reinvent health as a prevention method first.” This mindset shapes Dr. Yaseen’s practice philosophy. “I want to find the balance we are all looking for: technology, innovation, personalized and compassionate care in a timely manner. One patient at a time, one message at a time.” In his own words Who is your biggest role model? I have been influenced by several people throughout my life. Doctors Patrick Alguire and Michael Zaroukian influenced my professional career as my residency directors. They coached me throughout my training and gave me a strong foundation of what I need in critical decision model analysis, medical informatics and a patient-centered approach to medicine. Steve Jobs, as an innovator, inspired me to adopt simplicity in presenting complex tasks we encounter. “Make it simple.” Outside of medicine, what are your interests? Hobbies? I enjoy playing classical guitar, nature walks and photography. I spend time with my wife and three kids, who keep us busy.
