“As a woman and a physician, I wanted to empower and help women throughout the various stages of life.”
Dr. Hala Ubaid was born and raised in Long Island. She attended Hofstra University for the first part of her undergraduate career, and she subsequently attended the New York Institute of Technology for the remainder of her undergraduate education. Dr. Ubaid then went on to complete her medical education at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, which included a holistic approach to patient care. She graduated with honors in both her undergraduate and graduate studies. Throughout her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Nassau University Medical Center, she continued to perform at the top of her class. Being a top resident at NUMC helped her gain extensive experience serving a diverse population. She then went on to work in a private Obstetrics and Gynecology practice in Flushing before joining the Woman’s Health Pavilion.
An Interview With Dr. Hala Fatima Ubaid
What led you to the field of obstetrics/gynecology?
As a woman and a physician, I wanted to empower and help women throughout the various stages of life- from those first steps into womanhood during adolescence, through the childbearing years, pregnancies and deliveries, and then through the transition into menopause and beyond. An OBGYN is often the only physician a patient seeks care from, which puts me on the “front line” of medical care. It is an important and humbling responsibility. For me, being an Obstetrician-Gynecologist is a calling.
How many years have you been practicing in the field?
I completed four years of residency training after graduating from medical school and have been in practice for over two years before joining the Woman’s Health Pavilion in 2018.
What makes your job rewarding? What do you enjoy about your work?
I love helping my patients and being by their side through the joys and struggles over the years. I like to listen to my patients, discuss all their options and engage in shared decision-making. I want to be able to offer both medical treatment as well as surgical options if needed and provide the best, holistic medical care.
What brought you to the area and to this practice?
I was born and raised on Long Island and completed my education and training here as well. This community is my community, and I want to serve it the best I can.
