Emad Soliman, M.D., Ms.C.
Chief of Neurology
While in 3rd grade elementary school, Doctor Soliman wrote a school project describing what he wanted to be when he grew up, a doctor, and when he was asked why, he replied to the entire class “it is a job of mercy”.
This was the basis for Doctor Soliman seeking a career in medicine. When he finished high school, Doctor Soliman graduated with Cum De Laude and was immediately accepted into the prestigious 7-year medical program at Alexandria University School of Medicine. He remembered running to his parents to give them the great news of acceptance to medical school and remembers his father looking at him and said “son it does not matter; be a doctor, be a plumber, be a carpenter but be the best at what you do”.
With these words, Doctor Soliman started medical school and graduated in the top 3% of his class. He was always passionate about the immune system and neuroscience. He decided to finish with a graduate study.
Doctor Soliman joined and successfully completed a Master of Science program at Long Island University in Immunology and molecular biology graduating top of his class. He immediately started an internship and a residency program at Albert Einstein School of Medicine. He went further to study the nerve and muscle disease, completing a fellowship training at prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
