Beth Israel Doctor Earns Special Professional Distinction
BETH ISRAEL MEDICAL CENTER
Even among the likes of New York City’s professional high achievers, Samir A. Farhat, MD, FCCP, a physician in Beth Israel Brooklyn, has attained a rare distinction in medicine. Having been board-certified previously in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, critical care and sleep medicine, Dr. Farhat recently passed his fifth specialty board exam in neurocritical care.
