Meet The Doctors


Dr. Hussein

Dr Hussein – I qualified for my Bachelor of Medicine and general surgery in 2002 from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt. I have worked as a general practitioner in a clinic setting and also in the emergency department and outpatient clinics in different areas in the Middle East; Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, before moving to Canada. I started working in Yarmouth November 2011 at the Ocean View Clinic.


Dr. Safakish

Dr. Safakish – I am an Iranian medical doctor. To be very brief, I served in many underprivileged populations as a full-time general practitioner in urban clinics and remote rural settings for over 5 years. I gained valuable experience in managing infectious disease, acute medical and trauma cases. I did observership and volunteering in a multicultural setting at the University Health Network (UHN) in Toronto that has introduced me to new styles of cross cultural communication, ethical treatment and uncommon diseases.  At UHN’s Centre for Innovation in Complex Care, I learned innovative approaches to care. I was studying how to improve the entire process of care for patients with multiple problems.


Dr Al-Khalidi – Has joined us as of August 2014.

I have worked as a family doctor since 1976 in Yarmouth and am the founding doctor of the Ocean View Clinic. Currently my interests are Women’s Health and Post Graduate education.  Dr Leahey is seeing patients at the Women’s Clinic on Cumberland Street 902-742-0085 while the Clinic is under construction.
