Dr Wail E. Asfour

Growing up in war-torn Jordan, Dr. Wail E. Asfour always knew that his calling was to serve others. He spent his youth studying science, and recognized at an early age that he wanted to be a physician. After finishing medical school in Greece, he came to the United States to pursue a career in cardiology.

Dr. Asfour, in his 13 years with the group, has helped thousands of patients recover from – and to overcome –critical cardiovascular diseases. His philosophy is simple: He is here to help his patients. Whether through treatment or education and prevention, Dr. Asfour has dedicated his life to making sure that his patients feel comfortable and involved in the care that they receive.
