Dr. Mohamed comes to Medical City North Hills from Terrell State Hospital and has been a faculty member at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Tyler, as well as a clinical instructor and attending psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Health Alliance’s Whidden Hospital in Everett, MA.

“This appointment as medical director for our GBU is a great compliment to the quality services the unit has been providing since it’s opening in 2015,” said Xavier Villarreal, Medical City North Hills CEO. “Dr. Mohamed’s experience, especially in the area of interfacing psychiatry with internal medicine, is a benefit for our patients and the community.”
