Mesa View welcomes new Internal Medicine physician to Mesquite!
Mesa View Regional Hospital in conjunction with Mesa View Medical Group is proud to welcome Nizar Salem, M.D. to the medical community in Mesquite!
Dr. Salem is filling dual roles both as a hospitalist physician at Mesa View Regional Hospital and as a Primary Care Physician at Mesa View Medical Group.
Dr. Salem feels that this combination works well for him. He attends to patients when they are hospitalized, and then provides their follow-up care when they are discharged. He places a high value on continuity of care for his patients.
Born, raised and educated in New York, Dr. Salem now calls Southern Nevada his home. He majored in Biology in college - then received his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, specializing in Internal Medicine. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. Salem comes to Mesquite from Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nevada, where he was a hospitalist physician.
While test results are important to diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Salem also relies on patients’ impressions and information to get a complete picture of their health condition. A firm believer in open communication between doctor and patient, he solicits feedback on how a patient feels and what they are experiencing. Coupled with test data, this knowledge enables him to pursue the best possible outcomes for his patients.
As part of the communication process, Dr. Salem explains everything in detail to patients and their family members, spending a lot of time with them until questions are answered and concerns addressed. His family played a pivotal role in his career choice. His grandmother encouraged him to go into the medical profession when she became ill. And his mother, who he describes as "the most amazing person ever," encouraged, advised and supported him through the long years of medical school and residency.
