Dr. Bishara Baddour to serve OB/GYN patients at his father’s office in Moultrie
(Jan. 5, 2017, Moultrie, Ga.) - Obstetrician/gynecologist Bishara D. Baddour, M.D. will be providing women's health services at the office of his late father, urologist David Baddour, M.D.
The former Baddour Urology Center in Moultrie will serve as the Colquitt County practice for Dr. Bishara D. Baddour and Affinity Physicians for Women, a Tift Regional Health System obstetrics and gynecology clinic. Services offered by Dr. Baddour will include maternity care, gynecologic surgery, wellness checks, health education and more.
"I feel privileged to be back in my hometown of Moultrie providing obstetrical and gynecological services for area residents," said Dr. Baddour. "Though in a different specialty, my father provided quality, compassionate care for many years in Moultrie and that is a tradition I wish to uphold."
Dr. Baddour earned his medical degree from St. George's University School of Medicine in the West Indies. He completed obstetrical and gynecological residency training in Chicago at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. He then joined an OB/GYN group in Rockford, Illinois, where he remained for four years. While in practice, Dr. Baddour also served as a clinical instructor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. He and his wife, Dr. Rana Khalek, joined Affinity Physicians for Women in Tifton in September 2016. Dr. Khalek is also an obstetrician/gynecologist and sees patients at the Tifton office of Affinity Physician for Women along with Dr. Shannon Price.
In addition to routine patient care, Dr. Baddour conducts newborn deliveries and gynecologic surgery at Tift Regional Medical Center and will perform minor outpatient procedures at the Moultrie office location.
"My goal is to meet the special health needs of women of all ages with warm, personalized care," said Dr. Baddour. "There are many conditions and diseases with greater prevalence in women than in men or that affect women differently. Understanding the unique healthcare needs of females - at every stage of life - is central to my approach and key to advancing the health and vitality of women."
Affinity Physicians for Women, a part of Tift Regional Physician Group, is located in Moultrie at 2 Hospital Park. Dr. Baddour is accepting new patients. Call 229-217-0353 to make an appointment. Visit www.affinitywomen.com for more information.
