About the Physician
Dr. Hossein Hayat became a physician because, for him, it is an extreme pleasure to care for the sick. He chose pulmonary medicine because he believes that, “when you can’t breathe easily, nothing else matters.” Dr. Hayat has been a member of PMA since 1982 where his favorite thing is just listening to people’s stories and trying to help them breathe easier.
Dr. Hayat and his wife have two sons and three grandchildren. One of his sons graduated in the same specialty and has also joined PMA – a great source of pride! The Hayats enjoy living in this area because the city is just the right size and close enough to allow them to enjoy the activities available in both the mountains at at the ocean.
In his spare time, Dr. Hayat enjoys playing with his grandchildren, hunting, gardening, and playing poker.
