Mouhamed Iyad Fakhri

Mouhamed Iyad Fakhri grew up in Syria. He was accepted into Damascus University where he studied medicine. He got his degree in 1996, along the way publishing a book on kidney diseases and participating in two different research studies.

The first study was done to determine the best preventive measures in children of elementary school age. The second was a study on patients presenting with chest pain to determine criteria for admitting them to rule out coronary artery disease. 

After graduation, he went to work as a primary care doctor for the Ministry of Health at the M. Barazi Medical Center. He would not stay long, however, moving to Dallas, Texas a couple years later. At Richland College he took computer skills courses before he was finally able to validate his Syrian medical degree for the United States.

He went into residency at East Carolina University and worked at the Pitt County Memorial Hospital. During this time, he was invited to give two different talks on medical topics. The first was on lymphoproliferative disease in patients with Primary Sjogren’s Syndrome at the Rheumatology Conference in Greenville, NC. The second was at the ACP Meeting in Durham, where he spoke on a pituitary apoplexy in a patient with a negative CT study.

His residency complete, he went to work as a primary care physician. A solo practitioner, he was granted admitting privileges at Lenoir Hospital in Kinston, NC and Sampson County Memorial Hospital in Clinton, NC. He soon developed a reputation as a caring, trustworthy physician who listens carefully to his patients.

Mouhamed has recently had the opportunity to give two more talks on medical topics, anemia approach in September of 2018 and headaches in November of 2018. Both were at Drexel University.

Outside of his work, Mouhamed is a stamp collector, a pastime he has come to enjoy in the United States. He has also developed a passion for American football and follows the New England Patriots. He reads the news every day, enjoys music and movies and takes time when he can to go hiking. 

Ultimately, his main goal is to be at peace with God. He views his services as a doctor to the community as a way to accomplish this.
