Why I Became A Medical Provider
"I chose a career in medicine because of my inner passions to reach out to people and address their issues whether they are medical, emotional, or family-related. My profession gives me the opportunity to do that."
Department of Hospital Medicine
In the Department of Hospital Medicine, Dr. Sadiq provides quality medical treatment to individuals while they are in the hospital. She manages and coordinates inpatient care for Christie patients and works closeley with patients' primary care physicians.
Dr. Sadiq loves to read and write. Her favorite pastime is writing inspriational/motivational pieces. She has one daughter who has taught her very important life lessons - the best being patience. Dr. Sadiq loves spending quality time with her.
What Sets Me Apart from Other Providers
"I tend to keep my life balanced and learn lessons from everyday experiences at work, which is humbling. Communication is very important to me. Sometimes anxiety and the fear of the unknown in a patient can be calmed by just sitting with the patient and telling him/her that we will do our best to help them."
