Nada Mohamed, MD, has joined Samaritan Health Services. Dr. Mohamed is a pulmonologist at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, and also sees patients with respiratory conditions at Samaritan Medical Group Pulmonology – Corvallis.
Dr. Mohamed earned a bachelor’s degree at Oregon State University and a medical degree at Trinity School of Medicine. She completed residency training at United Health Services Wilson Memorial Regional Medical Center and a fellowship in pulmonary medicine and critical care at West Virginia University.
Dr. Mohamed specializes in minimally invasive bronchoscopy techniques that are used to diagnose diseases of the lungs and reduce recovery times for patients.
She comes from a medical family, having grown up watching her father practice medicine. When she was in college, she worked in a medical practice.
“That gave me exposure to patient care and helped me to find my own path into the medical field,” she said.
During her training, Dr. Mohamed was drawn to working in intensive care where she found her specialty.
“Pulmonology is both interesting and complicated, challenging and rewarding,” she said.
Her approach to patient care begins with listening to her patients.
“Hearing what their symptoms are and following their lead helps me to diagnose and treat their ailments,” she said.
Dr. Mohamed grew up in Corvallis and was eager to return to the area to be near her family. She chose Samaritan for the opportunity to serve the community and to teach in the residency program.
Away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her children and exploring new hobbies.
