Dr. Hassan Bencheqroun fondly referred to as Dr. B, is a board-certified pulmonologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases of the lungs.
“Shortly before defending my thesis and graduating from medical school, I was involved in a car accident which nearly claimed my life,” says Dr. Bencheqroun. “Through the days that followed, I was introduced to what it means to wear the patient’s hat, feel the pain, experience the pity in people’s eyes, ask for help, and wait every day for my doctors’ visits to tell me what’s next. That experience would forever affect the way I would treat my patients and their families.”
After recovering from his injuries, Dr. B continued his education in the United States in the study of internal medicine at Wilson Memorial Regional Medical Center at SUNY upstate New York.
