We asked Dr. Al-Husari some questions

Can you tell us more about your medical background and education?

I did my medical schooling at Baghdad University and my family medicine residency training at the University of Toronto. From there I began working as an emergency room and family physician. I have a special interest in ear, nose, and throat medicine, as well as taking care of patients who require urgent care.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

My uncle inspired me. He was an exceptional family doctor in Baghdad, and we were very close when I was young. As a youth I volunteered at his clinic in the summertime. Seeing the facial expressions of patients when they entered the clinic versus when they left was very inspiring. I learned to love helping people heal.

What do you love the most about practising medicine?

I enjoy teaching my patients about preventative care. It’s all about motivating and enabling my patients to take care of their own health. I also love how medicine is an art. As a doctor, I combine knowledge and practical experience to deliver a judgement. This must incorporate the patient’s emotional and physiological wellness.

What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?

Maple has made me accessible to patients when they need me most. I love a challenge, so adapting my years of experience to a virtual setting is exciting.

What’s the most challenging aspect of working in the medical field?

It’s important to be sensitive about communication in a multicultural environment. There is a wide spectrum of cultural norms. Of course, there’s also the challenge of making life saving decisions in a fraction of a second. I’ve encountered many of these situations working in the emergency room setting.

If you could choose any other career, what would it be?

I like gardening, so maybe I would become a farmer or gardener. Since I am handy, I would probably enjoy engineering as well.

Is there an individual in the medical community that you find most inspiring?

That would be Dr. Kim Scher. He is an amazing family doctor in Fort Erie. His passion and dedication are really inspiring. Thank you Kim.

Can you share a health-hack that has made your life better?

Focus on living an active lifestyle, consuming a healthy diet, and paying attention to your emotional well-being. Coping skills and relaxation techniques are extremely helpful in difficult times.

What do you do in your spare time?

I do my best to spend quality time with my wife and three kids. I love to travel, and I stay active through daily speed walking.

A fantastic way to get medical advice when you are unable to see someone in person. The app is so simple to use. Highly recommend. I am not a tech savvy person but the doctor was kind enough to patiently walk me through every step of the process. Thank you.

This app is amazing! The doctor was so professional. I just waited 1-2 mins to get served! I highly recommend this app.

The most efficient and professional service ever. In less than an hour I was paired with a dermatologist who prescribed the medication required. A thorough consult and knowledgeable MD who made everything easy. My pharmacy had the prescription faxed in no time. I definitely see myself using the service in the future.

— Sheila R.

This was the best thing i've ever come across. I downloaded the app and one hour later had completed an appointment with a dermatologist who then faxed over 2 prescriptions to my pharmacy. I have been dealing with a terrible rash on my face since March with no hope in sight of getting into a dermatologist. When I found this app I was skeptical, but can honestly say it has saved my face, I am already seeing an improvement after 1 week.

Possibly the easiest way to meet a Dermatologist!
