Farhana Asim, MD
We have a new pediatrician - Dr. Farhana Asim!
Dr. Asim joined our practice in October, 2013 after completing her pediatric residency at Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children in Falls Church Virginia. She is working at the Health Center full-time and is a member of the medical staff of Samaritan Medical Center. She is in the process of being certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
Dr. Asim joins Dr. Hal Phillips, Nurse Practitioner Kit Veley, and Dr. Dan Mitchell in our pediatric practice in Watertown. Dr. Farhana Basit will be starting maternity leave in the next few weeks, but she will return to us after she delivers and spends some time with her new baby.
Dr. Asim and her husband have two young children, a son and daughter.
