Regional Medical Center Welcomes Pulmonologist and Critical Care Specialist

LAFAYETTE, La. – The team of physicians at Regional Medical Center continues to grow with the addition of Dr. Amari, board-certified Pulmonologist and Critical Care Specialist, set for November.

Dr. Mohammed Amari joins the staff at Regional Medical Center from North West Medical Center in Bentonville, AR. 

“I chose pulmonology and critical care medicine because I always enjoyed helping the very sick and saving the lives of the critically ill.  I also have few family members that were negatively affected by smoking related lung disease, so I’ve seen the effects first hand.”
