Jamaica Hospital would like to introduce you to Dr. Jebun Nahar, MD, FACP; internist in the hospital’s Department of Medicine for 11 years.
Dr. Nahar provides a comprehensive range of primary care services for her patients, but one condition that she is extremely passionate about treating is hypertension. According to Dr. Nahar, “I feel that hypertension is largely preventable and can be managed through lifestyle modifications. If not addressed, it can lead to a variety of other health issues including diabetes and heart disease.”
Dr. Nahar believes in developing a close connection with her patients that is based on trust. She also feels that her years of experience and her understanding of the community’s needs help her as a physician. One aspect of working at Jamaica Hospital that particularly appeals to Dr. Nahar is the diverse population that it serves.
One group that has especially benefitted from Dr. Nahar’s expertise is the Bengali population. “As someone who is from Bangladesh, I can relate to and help them with not only their health, but other issues they might be encountering.” She is even a member of multiple physician groups that represent that region including the South Asian IPA and the Bangladesh Medical Association of North America.
In addition to providing high-quality care to her patients, Dr. Nahar also has a love for mentoring the next generation of doctors at Jamaica Hospital and is an active part of the hospital’s teaching faculty.
Dr. Nahar sees patients at the following locations:
