I pro­vide indi­vid­u­al­ized, evi­dence based and com­pas­sion­ate care to my patients. I believe it’s best to work in part­ner­ship with my patients and their fam­i­ly to devel­op an opti­mal and informed treat­ment plan to main­tain and improve upon their car­diac health.

Dr. Nijmeh is cur­rent­ly a physi­cian over­see­ing mul­ti­ple clin­i­cal stud­ies for Heart Health research includ­ing pre­ven­ta­tive care tri­als. Learn more about clin­i­cal research and join­ing a study with Accel­lacare, today!
