Addressing womens health concerns for 28 years
Dr. Shiraz Kassam, an OB/GYN, opened his private practice in Conyers almost three decades ago to meet the health needs of women in the local community and surrounding counties. Since then, the practice has enjoyed steady growth causing it to relocate to its new, larger offices at 1380 Milstead Ave. September 1.

In addition, the clinic recently welcomed Dr. Bruce Williams, D.O., formerly of Rockdale Hospital, in August to continue to accommodate the growth and provide patients the same level of quality care and attention. He is a graduate of Lake Erie College of Osteopathic College of Medicine.
Clients have benefited from the practice's wide range of services to provide wellness care and meet the obstetrics and gynecological concerns and enjoy a personal and friendly atmosphere whenever they visit.

Mubina Mawji, who has managed the daily life of the practice for the past 23 years, enjoys being able to contribute in the services that they offer to the clients. She explained that among the staff there is the belief that just as common values are the bond that holds families together and keeps them strong, the same principle also holds true for the staff. They rely on a set of six basic "shared values" to guide them as they do their day-to-day work.

Kassam said, "We pledge to our community to promote health by offering the highest quality, patient-centered, ambulatory care center in the area, characterized by the utmost in quality and availability in a caring and responsible partnership with our patients and staff.
"Striving for quality and the highest standards at all times and being open to new ideas and challenges that may improve quality. Taking the initiative to make changes, accepting and providing constructive feedback and being an enthusiastic participant in efforts to change the ‘status quo' are valued here."

Mawji shared an example of how they carry out their core values. "One of the things we do in reaching out to the Hispanic community is to have a translator available to not only ensure clear lines of communication between the patient and doctor, but that the client feels that her medical needs are being met," she said.

Before coming into his private practice, Kassam served in many capacities in his field and has a long list of credentials behind his name. Kassam has 11 published works and is recognized for his community service and leadership to impoverished communities overseas.

As the practice continues to serve clients from Rockdale as well as Gwinnett, DeKalb and Henry counties, plan on visiting them in their new location beginning Sept.1.
