Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards 2021

50 GHP / Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Awards 2021 , Jul21504 Following 20 years of studying and working in Germany, Dr Leila Soudahmoved to Dubai and founded her own clinic, Dr Leila Soudah Clinic, in 1999. It started as a small clinic facility in Deira then expanded into a two-story villa in Jumeirah, where it is still located today. Best Obstetrics, Gynaecology & Infertility Clinic - UAE The Dr Leila Soudah Clinic focuses primarily on obstetrics, gynaecology and infertility, undertaking all modern and highly competitive technology, such as ultrasound 3D/4D Live High Definition, in order to best treat its patients. Running with the most modern IT systems and having advanced knowledge in the latest guidelines and regulations, the team at Dr Leila Soudah Clinic is committed to providing services of preventive and personalised medicine in all areas of women’s healthcare. In 2013, the clinic expanded into the field of anti-ageing, which deals with functional medicine and now Dr Leila Soudah’s ultimate goal is to utilise the holistic approach to treat not just the presenting symptoms but the individual as a whole. “The holistic approach is one of the powerful markers that attract the patient to come to us as they know we are going to help them individually and treat them with long term benefit,” explains Dr Soudah. “Our clinic is well known to change patients’ lives positively.” Dr Leila Soudah Clinic strives to empower women across the Emirates with its mission to serve patients with the finest and most comprehensive women’s reproductive healthcare and prenatal care, set with a high standard that encompasses a woman’s total reproductive health at all stages of her life and with the kind of compassionate care that everyone deserves, as well as the latest technology medical science offers. The Covid-19 pandemic affected business enormously for the Clinic, and Dr Soudah is still feeling the impact today. “We are dealing with a lot of scared pregnant women that we needed to stay working with to be able to keep the connection with our patients, as I saw our duty became now more important and delicate,” she elaborates. “We even delivered a few of our pregnant patients in the most difficult times. We were lucky that our patients followed all the rules in protecting themselves as well. I also made sure that all staff are completely vaccinated.” Dr Soudah, like many physicians, employed new techniques and technologies in order to be able to continue to connect with her patients and continue to assist them. “I was more active on social media to spread positive mood and hope for our patients. I spoke more about the role of food and healthy living especially in this time by sharing live cooking on my Instagram; through this I have been keeping connected with my patients. “The Covid time opened our eyes on a lot of things. We started Zoom consultations and we are planning to expand this service overseas so that we can still help patients who can’t travel to come and see us.” In order to stay ahead of the curve regarding medical advancements, Dr Leila Soudah installs and utilises some of the latest technology available on the market at her clinic. For example, the Tru PRP, a machine used for gynaecological- related concerns such as urge incontinence and vaginal rejuvenation, offers a safe and rapid preparation of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). It is a closed system, reduces operator error and minimises contamination. In addition, the clinic uses advanced and comprehensive clinic management software which enables the clinic to have electronic medical records and prescriptions with high level of security encryption for all data. Having recently been awarded the prestigious title of Best Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Infertility Clinic – UAE in the Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Awards 2021, Dr Soudah is now looking to the future and is determined to continue to empower women everywhere when it comes to female health. “Being a doctor is for me not a job - it is a passion that I share with my patient,” she enthuses. “Our patients feel the love that we are treating them with, that is why they keep coming even if their finances are limited because they know that they will get results for sure. “When the patient enters my clinic that means she puts her life in my hand - not only her life but the life of her entire family. I respect that and take it as my mission to change patients’ lives for the better.” Contact: Dr. Leila Soudah Company: Dr. Leila Soudah Clinic Web Address:
