Dr. Joe was born in Alexandria, Egypt, completed medical school in Cairo, and then moved to the USA. He completed his family medicine residency in Pennsylvania before settling in Roseville, where he established his practice in 1983. Shortly after he initially started, his brother Dr Hayne worked with him for a few years. His work is to now lead the new generation, and he is thrilled to have his children, Alix and John Paul, join him in the practice. His favorite thing about practicing medicine is the friends that he has developed over the years. His hobbies include hiking, snorkeling, and traveling.
