About Yasir Al-Abboodi, MD

  • Dr. Al-Abboodi grew up in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, and moved to the U.S. in 2009 as a Fulbright Scholar. He tries to keep a healthy balance between his work and personal life, trying to get to the gym when he is not working. Dr. Al-Abboodi also has a carpentry project he has been trying to finish in his small garage. His favorite area locale is the Oasis restaurant hill, where he can oversee the entire lake.

    Dr. Al-Abboodi performs screenings and procedures at: 

I chose the path of medicine as I always look for an opportunity to help people, and there is no better way to help someone than making them healthier. Gastroenterology gives me a wide scope of practice, including procedural skills and short and long-term patient/doctor relationships. I have a surgical background, and I feel that gastroenterology is strongly related to other surgical specialties. I have a simple, yet practical approach to care. I always think that the patient I am talking to today is my family member. This approach has always helped me make the right call for my patients throughout my entire medical career.
