The following year he completed his second fellowship in Cytopathology at LAC+USC Medical Center, Keck Hospital and Norris Cancer Center.

His philosophy of care:

Teamwork is a cornerstone in providing excellence in patient care. A pathologists’ role is not only crucial but integral in assisting other clinical colleagues in achieving this noble goal. This assistance is most effective when clear communication and continuous knowledge from recent advanced literature and updated information is shared often.

Dr. Ibrahim will continue the highest standards for delivering patient care while at ARMC.
