Sherif Hassan MD internist functional medicine DC

Area of Specialty: Functional and Precision Medicine Physician

Practice Philosophy: “Wellness is the cornerstone of my practice. Physicians are good in the management of acute ailments while chronic ailments and wellness remain to be neglected. Early prevention, surveillance and modifications of health are easier and more affordable than treatment of disease. My patients have access to me via Telemedicine wherever they are, which enables them to be more in charge of their health.”

Areas of Focus: Functional and Precision Medicine, Sleep Study for Sleep Apnea and Sleep Disorders, Cardiovascular Risks and Metabolic Cardiology, Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS), Medical Tourism and Personal Wellness Programs



Dr. Hassan’s wide and comprehensive experience in medical practice in different international settings coupled with his personal experience as a patient suffering from Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) changed his path to a more interesting and spurned area, and that is Undiagnosed Chronic Medical Disorders.
