HSHS Medical Group’s newest Health Today episode features Muhammad Islam, MD, family medicine physician at HSHS Medical Group Family Health - Effingham. According to Dr. Islam, “We definitely look at health as a partnership between the patient and the physician. Me, my nurse and receptionist work closely with the patient to find the best resources. We definitely put the needs of the patient first.”
