“For as long as I can remember, my mentor was my uncle Joe Shamseldin and he had a great influence on me. He was a revered family physician in the community and instilled the desire to lead life with compassion, tolerance, and hard work. I wanted to be just like my ‘Uncle Joe’."
Dr. Shamseldin cares for patients of all ages, from birth through adulthood. His clinical interests include pediatrics, adult medicine, sports medicine, dermatology procedures, and gynecology.
Dr. Shamseldin loves sports, guitar, skiing, boating, off-road motorcycling, hiking, history, and learning.
“Every illness affects each of us differently. I believe in an approach to healing that draws upon our personal strengths and acknowledges our individual weaknesses. This can only be achieved by taking the time to get to know each other and requires compassion, intense listening, knowledge, and tolerance.”
