Personally, I think one of the hardest things about moving to a new country is finding reliable healthcare professionals. I’ve tried just Googling doctors, but I always feel more comfortable if the doctor comes with a personal recommendation. The following doctor was highly recommended by a friend of mine and also by the American Embassy in Amman for the specialty of Endocrinology.

I visited Dr. Zaqqa to review my blood test results for hypothyroidism. I found her extremely knowledgeable and professional. I also appreciated that she had squeezed my appointment in last minute and responded via SMS to my messages promptly. I definitely recommend Dr. Zaqqa.
