Dr. Imtiaz Alam, MD

I’ve been practicing medicine for over 30 years, but my love for science and taking care of others started far before I graduated medical school. My father was also a physician, and seeing the impact he made on his patients’ lives was what made me passionate about pursuing medicine.

Perspective on Frontdoor Health

I love using the Frontdoor Health platform because it is a brand new way for me to care for patients. My own patients constantly ask me for opinions on home health products they see on social media, and I’ve realized that it can be quite dangerous when they purchase and use these solutions without consulting a medical provider, given the risk of adverse side effects. For that reason, I’m excited to help all interested patients navigate their health journeys safely and effectively from home through Frontdoor Health.
