Umair Sohail, MD, is a board-certified gastroenterologist who practices at UT Health East Texas Physicians Tyler. He earned his medical degree from Rawalpindi Medical College, in his homeland of Pakistan. “Coming from a family of engineers, with no one in the medical profession, I diverted from the prescribed route.”

After internal medicine training in Missouri, he did a transplant hepatology fellowship at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, followed by another fellowship in gastroenterology-hepatology at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he was chief gastroenterology fellow. “The discipline of gastroenterology combines the skills of surgery with the critical thinking of internal medicine.”

So far, so good. He seemed very professional, and we liked his bedside manner. He is being very thorough with what is going on, and we are happy so far.

I found Dr.Sohail to be very good! He took time to explain what was done in surgery and showed concern with understanding! We travel for work so miss being able to continue going to him. Thanks Dr. Sohail!

He was very kind and listened to me. He was not impatient and took his time, which is rare these days. It's hard getting an appointment or get through to his office, but he is a good doctor and I am glad he is treating me. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.
