VISALIA – Cardiologist Sarmad Said, MD, is now seeing patients at the Visalia and Tulare offices of Visalia Medical Clinic. Dr. Said earned his medical degree and Ph.D. in Germany. He was board certified in internal medicine and cardiology before moving to the United States. He completed his U.S. medical residency training in internal medicine and his fellowship in cardiovascular disease at Texas Tech University Health Science Center.
Dr. Said is one of very few international medical graduates to become a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He is also a member of the American Medical Association and the American College of Cardiology. He has had numerous papers published in elite medical journals, and he serves as a member of the board for several medical editorial journals.
“My wife and I lived in Palm Springs and we knew we wanted to be in California,” Dr. Said noted. “We have family in northern and southern California, so Visalia provided the right location. We also appreciate the quiet environment and it’s a safe place for my family. I think we made the right choice.”
