Dr. Chalhoub's Philosophy of Care
My emphasis first and foremost is the quality of care. I treat a patient as a whole. Patients in general are all going through stressful and hard times physically, mentally, and emotionally. We are here to make sure their medical journey feels understood, supported, and treated with the utmost expertise, clarity, dignity, and respect.
