At Lam Vascular & Associates, patient experience is important to us. As a team, we sincerely desire that every patient we are honored to serve feels respected, cared for and completely confident in the care they receive from our team. Because of this, we are committed to investing in and developing a group of vascular experts specializing in all areas of vascular medicine and limb salvage. And we are delighted to announce that our team is growing again. Dr. Mina Tawfik recently joined our surgical team, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to Texas!
Meet Dr. Tawfik
Before joining the team at Lam Vascular & Associates, Dr. Tawfik completed his residency in Vascular Surgery at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, after earning his Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
How Dr. Tawfik ended up selecting Vascular Surgery is an interesting story! You might even call it destiny. Normally a very punctual person, Dr. Tawfik was running late on the first day of his surgical clerkship as a medical student. His security badge to get into the parking garage of the hospital wasn’t working, causing him to arrive about 10 minutes late.
His tardiness meant the other residents had already selected their cases for the day. So, when he looked at what was left, he saw that all the coveted general surgery cases had already been snatched up. But he noticed there was a carotid endarterectomy on the table and thought it sounded interesting. Young Dr. Tawfik ended up shadowing a vascular surgeon all day and was in awe of the finesse required in the vascular procedures he observed and even assisted in.
“Of all the other rotations I completed, I never found any of them as exciting as the vascular surgeries,” said Dr. Tawfik. “That very first day greatly influenced my decision to specialize in vascular surgery.”
Welcome to the Lam Vascular Family
Dr. Tawfik is excited to join the surgical team at Lam Vascular & Associates. “I love the energy of everyone within the practice,” said Dr. Tawfik. “The entire team is excited about what they do, and it shows! I also love the way they focus on the total patient experience; those all-important finishing touches.”
He is similarly excited about the opportunity to practice with the only vascular group in the Metroplex to have a state-of-the-art Limb Salvage Center dedicated to outpatient endovascular procedures. Located adjacent to the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, the center is designed for patient comfort and convenience.
“The things people wish upon one another are health and a happy life,” said Dr. Tawfik. “Health and time are arguably the most valuable commodities we have, and it is an honor to get to help people improve their health and have more time with the people they love.”
“The creativity and innovation within the field of vascular surgery mirror no other field in medicine. It’s an exciting time to be a vascular surgeon.”
