Dr. Daniel Neghassi

neghassiBorn and raised in New York City, I am a board-certified family physician working at Heritage Health and Housing, a federally qualified health center in West Harlem. I am a graduate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and completed my residency training at Columbia University/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. My goal is to provide comprehensive, compassionate healthcare to patients of all ages and backgrounds. I enjoy carefully listening to my patients stories and working with them to develop personalized plans. Everyday, I feel privileged to be my patients primary care doctor.

I am an Instructor in Clinical Medicine for the Center for Family and Community Medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and I am a supervising physician at Columbia-Harlem Homeless Medical Partnership, a free student-run medical clinic in West Harlem. 

Particular interests of mine include:

  • Healthful lifestyles: eating right and staying active.
  • Counseling people with depression, anxiety, and stress.
  • Managing chronic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease.
  • Women’s health, such as pap smears, family planning and birth control, and abnormal bleeding.
  • Musculoskeletal concerns, including evaluating and treating joint pain, and starting exercise.
