Wajih has been extensively trained in Internal Medicine and especially in the field of Neurology. He has worked in various hospitals in Australia and New Zealand. His areas of interest initially included neurological disorders caused by the dysfunction of immune system, for example, multiple sclerosis and neuromyelitis optica etcetera. He now considers himself a general neurologist who takes pride in helping the patients with complex set of problems. He gives particular importance to listening to his patients because he believes that the diagnosis, in most cases, lies in the description of the symptoms volunteered by the patients. He tries his utmost to give ample time to patients to unhurriedly describe their complicated neurological symptoms.
He strives to combine the science of Neurology with the art of healing in his clinical practice. By using simple jargon-free language and examples from everyday life, he makes sure that the diagnosis and the plan of management are understood by his patients.
He has been working in a public hospital and in private clinics. He routinely looks after patients with epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, headache, stroke and nerve diseases. He has been actively participating in teaching at the under and post graduate levels. His most prized achievements are the notes of appreciation which his patients continue to express for him.
