Dr. Bsher Touleimat
Independent Pulmonologist at UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial
Dr. Bsher Touleimat has been an independent pulmonologist at UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial for 17 years. Despite working long shifts treating COVID-19 patients, he remains positive and driven to help. Touleimat credits the support from colleagues – doctors, nurses, pharmacists, technicians – for keeping him motivated. Everyone has shown their best attitudes and stepped up to handle the challenges of the pandemic as a team.
Touleimat misses seeing his family but hopes to continue treating patients for as long as he can. “I don’t consider myself a hero,” he said. “I just want to continue to be a good doctor to my patients.”
