Dr. Hanid Audish
DIRECTOR, PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Dr. Hanid Audish is board certified in family medicine. He has been in private practice since 2007 and joined Encompass Medical Group at that time. While in clinical practice Dr. Audish noted that many patients were in need of better treatment options to help manage their chronic medical conditions. His desire to deliver and offer better treatment options to these patients led Dr. Audish into clinical research. His passion for clinical research grew while he was in private practice and he soon joined Encompass Clinical Research. He has a passion for helping patients take control of their health by educating them about their medical conditions.
