Dr. Samiya Hashmi, MD is a Internal Medicine Specialist in Elmhurst, IL. She is affiliated with Elmhurst Hospital - Main Campus.
My name is Samiya Hashmi. I was born and raised in the United States. Both of my parents are from Pakistan.
I have three incredible sisters, for which I am the oldest. I have been married for over 10 years, and I have two amazing handsome boys who are my world.
I love fashion and music. I love to travel, and yes I am very blond. I am a typical Pisces. Therefore I am a dreamer and highly in tune with my, and other’s emotions. I love life, and I am not afraid to go after what I want.
I am a medical doctor board-certified in Internal Medicine. I have been practicing as a Hospitalist for over ten years. I recently started to take an interest in a new medical field called Lifestyle Medicine (LM). I am in the process of getting certified in this upcoming field.
LM is about reversing chronic diseases such as DM Type 2, heart disease, lung disease, and certain autoimmune diseases through diet and exercise, mindfulness, and proper nutrition. Throughout my career, I have seen these diseases do their destruction on the human body. So I started this blog to give back to my patients and my followers to take their health back.
To me, health is wealth. Time is money. We must invest in our health to have more time to do what we want in life. I am here to provide all of you with that hope. That no matter where you are in your health, you can make it better. Every little change helps. This is my reason.
I want to teach all of you what I have learned through my professional and personal experiences. I also want to make it fun through my love of fashion and glam.
I hope you decide to go on this incredible journey with me. My mantra will always be “Love, laugh, and live. Even in hardship, find something to be grateful for.”
