Answering the call from Williamsburg Community Hospital in their search for a neurologist, Dr. Shawke Soueidan came to Williamsburg in 1992 looking forward to becoming a community doctor who would see and greet his many patients and their families whenever he would see them in the grocery store or about town. Whether walking for MS and Alzheimer’s, getting arrested for Dream Catcher’s, or giving community lectures about Parkinson’s Disease or Best Practice in Stroke Management, Dr. Soueidan has enjoyed realizing his dream of being part of our vibrant and generous community.
Though he has not yet claimed any fame for dancing, he is known for his love of music, and he’s embracing the 50s by learning something new for a cause. He’ll be cheered on by his wife and four daughters and, of course, his first grandson. Of special note, he’s a polio survivor and wants to show his own patients his willingness to try something challenging and new despite any limitations (physically or rhythmically). He’s looking forward to making his friends at Lowe’s, HomeGoods, and all his grocery store haunts proud!
