Walid Alami, MD
University of Oklahoma. Trained at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
Years in practice:
My days I volunteered in the ER during the war in Lebanon and my parents’ influence (both physicians)
inspired me to be a doctor
I love my specialty because:
it keeps me in touch with
people from all walks of life and because my work makes a difference.
My best day on the job so far was when:
a patient was being taken to hospice. I insisted to allow me to work on
her heart… now she is golfing today! The second best day is when a wheelchair-bound patient was about to have his right arm amputated. My intervention saved his arm – and his livelihood.
My worst day on the job so far was when:
my expectations and those of my patient were not met!
If I weren’t a doctor, I would be:
a helicopter ski guide.
When I’m not working, I love to:
mountain bike, play soccer, heli ski and spend quality time with my family and friends.
I should know better as a doctor, but I just can’t help indulging in:
If I could change anything about health care, I would:
that everyone receives health care coverage.
Yay or nay? Why not dude?!
If my patients could describe me in three words, they’d say I am:
friendly, caring and attentive to their needs.
