Conemaugh Cancer Center Welcomes New Physician

October 8, 2015

Conemaugh Physician Group - Medical Oncology is pleased to welcome Zeina El Amil, MD, to the team at the Conemaugh Cancer Care Center.

Dr. El Amil is board certified in Medical Oncology and Hematology and comes to Conemaugh from Sky Lakes Medical Center in Klamath Falls, Oregon.  A graduate of Lebanese University, School of Medicine in Beirut, Lebanon, Dr. El Amil completed an Internal Medicine residency at Roger Williams Medical Center in Providence, Rhode Island, where she also completed a fellowship in Hematology and Oncology. 

Dr. El Amil says she enjoys the field of Oncology and Hematology because it is challenging but rewarding. She chose the specialty after experiencing a family member’s journey with cancer. “I felt strongly that this is what I wanted to do and where I thought I could have an impact.”

When not treating patients, Dr. El Amil keeps busy traveling and enjoying time with her husband and three daughters. She is happy to relocate to the region to be closer to her family in Ohio.
