About Sami Assad
Dr. Sami Assad earned his Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in Psychology from the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, Rhode Island. He then went on to obtain his Doctor of Allopathic Medicine from St. George’s University School of Medicine in St. Georges, Grenada in the West Indies. He completed his Family Medicine residency at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama.
His personal philosophy of care is that a little kindness goes a long way. He also tries to personify what he preaches and approaches health from an all-encompassing perspective where diet, exercise, sleep, stress, and mental care all contribute to a well-rounded picture of health. He himself is passionate about exercise and routinely participates in HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), CrossFit, and weight training classes. His passion for exercise has also inspired his planning to hike all 40 peaks over 4,000 feet in New Hampshire.
His inspiration to become a doctor came from a personal loss at a very young age. He wanted to be in the know of what was happening and why things were occurring. Those experiences and the want to make sure no one felt in the dark about their healthcare propelled him into medicine. To him being a part of Southcoast Health means having the opportunity to provide care for the community he calls home.
Sami speaks Arabic and Russian
