MAYWOOD, IL – Primary care physician Mohanad Joudeh, MD has joined the Loyola Center for Health at Orland Park. Dr. Joudeh said medicine is a partnership between the primary care physician and the patient.
"Establishing relationships with patients and seeing patient satisfaction is very rewarding as a doctor. I help my patients understand the logic of why I am doing something or prescribing a certain medication," Dr. Joudeh said.
Dr. Joudeh, an internal medicine physician, specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting adult men and women. He helps adult patients manage medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease and thyroid disorders.
Dr. Joudeh is an assistant professor in the department of medicine of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. He is board certified in internal medicine and obesity medicine.
In addition to complex adult medical problems, Dr. Joudeh also specializes in the medical treatment of obesity, often an underlying cause of many chronic medical problems including, acid reflux, sleep apnea and arthritis.
