Nezar Dahdal, MD | Sage Hospice | Scottsdale, Arizona Hospice

Nezar “Nas” Dahdal, MD

Dr. Dahdal  is the Associate Medical Director for Sage Hospice

Dr. Dahdal has cared for patients with life limiting illness throughout his career.  But in the early 2000’s, while working with patients requiring intensive care, Dr. Nas experienced a life-changing event that taught him to pay extra close attention to the wants and needs of critically ill patients and their families.  He discovered what palliative and hospice care really meant and how much MORE could be done for patients when traditional medicine says, “I’m sorry, but there is nothing more we can do.”  This led Dr. Nas to his deep focus on patients with life limiting illness and eventually board certification in hospice and palliative care medicine.

Dr Nas. continually spreads the message of palliative and hospice care.  He shares how palliative and hospice care gives patients and families the ultimate in care and compassion, at a time where they are needed most.

Dr. Nas was trained in Queens NY.  He has worked in Nyack NY, Oahu HI, and Phoenix AZ. Dr. Nas is happily married, and they have 3 energetic and rambunctious, growing boys.  He and his family enjoy hiking, sports, martial arts and the great outdoors.
