Raja Abusharr, MD FAAFP
Dr. Abusharr is not your traditional doctor. In college he was a dual major in English literature and art history, and he pursued a master degree in art history before receiving his M.D. from Oregon Health Sciences University in 2000 with a scholarship from the National Health Servies Corp.
Dedicated to becoming a "physician for all people" Dr. Abusharr completed his residency in Family Medicine at Lancaster General Hospital, one of the oldest and most prestigious programs in the country. He began his medical career as the medical director of a community health center in south-eastern Missouri where he and his family remained until early 2006 when the family moved to Texas.
During those two and half years in Missouri he established one of the most reputable medical clinics in the community. Dr. Abusharr proudly completed his NHSC scholarship obligation in Splendora Texas in winter 2006 while preparing to open his own practice.
Family Medicine at Sterling Ridge opened in the last week of August 2007 and has seen had over 25,000 patient visits in those 5 years. We receive several hundred new patient requests monthly and now prioritize our availability for our existing patients, many of whom have been with us since our first year. Our practice is successful and well regarded: In 2012 we were voted second place in the annual Best of The Woodlands competition, and this year we were voted first place under the category of Best Family Doctor 2013. Our motivation continues to be to provide the very best level of primary care to our patients and to the community. As a small business in an every changing healthcare environment, we are unwilling to lose our reputation as an "old fashioned family doctor's office."
Involved from the very beginning in every aspect of his practice, Dr. Abusharr is also on the medical staff of three area hospitals: Memorial Hermann, St. Lukes, and Nexus Specialty. Deeply committed to the tradition of mentorship, he is also on the teaching staff of Baylor College of Medicine as an assistant clinical professor and he teaches all levels of medical students in his practice. In 2009 he was one of twelve physicians nationwide to receive a prestigious teaching award from the Foundation of the American Academy of Family Medicine. In 2012 he was awarded the Degree of Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
He is the father of two beautiful daughters ages 9 and 10 and when he is not practicing medicine, he loves taking photographs, gardening outside and listening to jazz music.
