Go Cats ! Go Irish!  

 

Medical Training: At Wayne State University School of Medicine, Dr. Atallah excelled in his academic and clinical work receiving numerous commendations.  He published several articles in peer reviewed journals including, Internal Carotid Artery Aneurysm Discovered by Palpation of Asymmetric Pulses, published in the American Journal of Medicine and Vieussens' Ring with Congenitally Hypoplastic Left Coronary Arterial System published in the International Journal of Cardiology.  

 

Dr. Atallah continued his research efforts throughout his Internal Medicine training and was the sole author of, Significance of First-Degree Atrioventricular Block in Acute Endocarditis, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association- Internal Medicine and presented at the American College of Physicians Michigan Chapter Scientific Meeting.
