October 3, 2018 – The father-and-son team of endocrinologist Saleh I. Khaddash, MD, and cardiologist Ibrahim S. Khaddash, MD, has joined the Englewood Health Physician Network, welcoming new patients to their Clifton location. As members of the network’s Heart and Vascular Associates of Northern Jersey practice, Drs. Khaddash and Khaddash now offer patients a more integrated care experience through greater collaboration and care coordination with other Englewood Health specialists.
“We are committed to providing care for patients with metabolic and cardiovascular conditions in a warm and caring environment,” says Dr. Saleh Khaddash. “Patients with chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes often have co-existing conditions and need multiple specialists. We are pleased to be part of the Englewood Health Physician Network, which will enable us to communicate more fluidly with other specialists throughout Englewood Health on behalf of our patients.”
“Patients with diabetes, for example,” says Dr. Ibrahim Khaddash, “are at risk for cardiovascular disease, especially if they have hypertension or high cholesterol. Our team works closely to ensure that patients with endocrine disorders or cardiovascular disease are carefully monitored and treated appropriately. As part of the Englewood Health Physician Network, we can better coordinate care on behalf of our patients. This is particularly vital when a patient is hospitalized.”
