May Awkal MD, Specializing in Geriatric Assisted Living Care
I am primary care physician who started practicing geriatric medicine in Los Angeles CA in 2011. I am proud to say that I am a Western Massachusetts native. I was raised in West Springfield, Massachusetts graduated high school in 1999. I received my bachelors in Biochemistry from Simmons College, Boston MA and doctorate of Medicine from University of Connecticut School of Medicine. My first year of residency in Internal Medicine was at Baystate Hospital, Springfield MA and last two years were completed at Harbor UCLA, St Mary Hospital Long Beach CA.
After completing residency I began my career providing care to Geriatric seniors at the Los Angeles Jewish Home. In addition, I started building my own full service primary care geriatric practice in Assisted Living Communities. The growing desire for geriatric seniors to have care brought to the home began to expand rapidly. My practice grew by 120 percent in year one and tripled in size by year 3 and services multiple assisted livings. I am well known as the House call doctor and would like to bring my expertise to Western Massachusetts providing care to my local community.
My vision is to be the house call doctor offering the best care at Medicare rates to local Assisted Livings in the Western Massachusetts area and surrounding communities. I view myself as a geriatric care team leader who understands the support, expertise, communication and daily changing need of the senior.
Thank you for welcoming me to your home and I look forward to meeting all of you. Continue to age gracefully! Keep moving.
