Recently, Dr. Saad held an interview with Blogwebpedia and discussed many things, among them his motivation to become a physician and most important life lessons. With a focused mindset, the good doctor believes anyone can achieve whatever they set out to accomplish. He encourages any individual looking to achieve success to avoid targeting anything less. Using his own example, DrSaad said he set out to become a pediatric surgeon during his high school years. While visiting his brother in Kuwait, the heat wave brought emanating from the hot summer took its toll causing him to fall sick and faint. DrSaad eventually decided that outdoor labor or activity wasn’t something he wanted to do.

DrSaad came to the US as a Palestinian refugee and followed through his dream to become a surgeon, and not only that but one who is innovative, successful and experienced. He also appreciates his father for the guidance and the discipline he instilled in him. Dr. Saad’s second life lesson is a resolution that says, do not postpone an accomplishment or task to a later date if you can complete it today. Having lived by this rule, DrSaad decided to make the most out of each day while observing strong work ethics. When he immigrated to the US, DrSaad’sfirst set his sights on becoming a US Board Certified pediatric surgeon. He knew this was not going to be easy, but was fully committed.
