Ardalan Enkeshafi, M.D., and Bashar I. Farjo, M.D., recently joined the medical staff at the Western Maryland Health System as physicians with the Hospital Medicine program.
Physicians specializing in hospital medicine are medical doctors who care for inpatients from the time of their hospital admission until their discharge. The WMHS Hospital Medicine team admits patients who come to the Emergency Department and do not have a primary care physician (PCP). They also direct the inpatient care of local medical patients whose PCP has made prior arrangements for the Hospital Medicine program to admit all of his/her patients.
Dr. Enkeshafi recently completed his residency in internal medicine at Good Samaritan Hospital of Maryland and Maryland General Hospital, both in Baltimore. He also did training at Harbor Hospital and the University of Maryland Medical Center through the Maryland General Hospital Residency Program, in affiliation with the University of Maryland Medical System. Dr. Enkeshafi received his medical degree at Beheshti University School of Medicine in Tehran, Iran. Before coming to the United States, he worked as a hospitalist and general practice physician at several hospitals in the United Arab Emirates and his native Iran. Dr. Enkeshafi is a member of the American College of Physicians.
Dr. Farjo recently completed his residency in internal medicine at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. He did his internship and training in general surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center through the University of Miami. A native of Iraq, Dr. Farjo received his medical degree from the University Of Baghdad College Of Medicine. He is a member of the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians.
WMHS is pleased to welcome these two new physicians to our community to provide quality care to tri-state area residents.
