Dr. Hassan Hassan joins us from Illinois and practices at our St. Augustine location. He is board certified in hematology, medical oncology, and internal medicine. He decided he wanted to be an oncologist in middle school to follow his mother’s footsteps, who is also an oncologist. Dr. Hassan hopes to bring comfort and hope to patients who are scared of the unknown.
“My philosophy is that God put us here to care for each other, and helping each other to the best of our ability is the best way to please him. I just want to do everything I can to be there for my patients, and to help in whatever way I can,” he says. Cancer affected his life personally when his father-in-law passed away of cancer. He was a relatively young physician in good health. Despite access to the best care, he died. “I learned from him that life and death is not in our hands, but living and dying with dignity and integrity is,” he says.
Dr. Hassan moved to Florida to get away for a few years. He fell in love with the people and the land and is trying to get the rest of his family to follow him here. Dr. Hassan was excited to join CSNF because of our patient-centered care. “It’s a local community-based practice, and I hope to develop deep roots within this community,” he says.
Dr. Hassan played high school basketball, scuba dives, and has set his sights on learning to surf. When not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his daughter, son, and loving wife. “I like to do whatever they tell me to do,” he says.
