Conemaugh Welcomes New OB/GYN Physician


Conemaugh Physician Group recently welcomed Dr. Jihad Azar to the practice of Conemaugh OB/GYN. Dr. Azar is a graduate of Lebanese University-Faculty of Medical Sciences, Lebanon. He completed a four-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York Medical College at Saint Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, Paterson, New Jersey.

“I lived in Johnstown for three years and really loved the people and the community,” says Dr. Azar. “I am glad to have this opportunity to come back to Conemaugh to practice obstetrics and gynecology.”

Dr. Azar has a special interest and training in minimally invasive gynecology surgery. He chose obstetrics and gynecology because it is a broad field and includes both medicine and surgery. “I love helping to bring new life into the world, it is a blessing to share this special moment with my patients,” says Dr. Azar. “I also like being in the operating room and helping people in the office setting. The variety is amazing and I enjoy all aspects of this field.”

When he is not working, Dr. Azar loves to be outdoors, biking, hiking, swimming, listening to music and working out. “This region is very beautiful and a perfect fit for my personality. I enjoy the quality of life and the variety of four seasons. This is also a very friendly region and I have always felt welcome and at home here.”
