Oswego Health doctor earns recognition, two new titles

Mohammad Ali

Physician Mohammad Fahad Ali has recently been recognized by Becker’s Healthcare as one of the “Top 5 Gastroenterologists to Know.” Ali joined Oswego Health in March.

Ali, who is currently the director of endoscopy, was recently appointed as chief of gastroenterology and hepatology and director of the Center for Gastroenterology & Metabolic Diseases. In this new role, he will assist and oversee the establishment of protocols and patient pathways related to the provision of gastroenterology services to increase efficiency. He will also serve as a mentor to providers and staff to ensure safe, quality and efficient care.

“Dr. Ali has demonstrated wholeheartedly our ‘we care’ mantra here at Oswego Health and we are confident in his leadership of the program that we will continue to increase the capacity of gastroenterology services in the community and positive patient outcomes,” said Oswego Health’s President and CEO, Michael C. Backus.

Ali is board-certified in gastroenterology and internal medicine. He is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology and was the president of the Cortland County Medical Society. He is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology’s research committee as well as its diversity, equity and inclusion committee, and in 2021 he was recognized by the ACG as a Young Physician Leadership Scholar. In addition, earlier this year, Doximity, the largest community of healthcare providers in the country, ranked Ali in the top 10% for H-index, which measures both the productivity and citation impact of his research publications among peers.

Since 2013 he has published several research and scholarly articles, including on the Medium and maintains his own medical blog, “Musings on Medicine.”
