About Dr. Lataifeh

Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) welcomes Abdel Rahman Lataifeh, MD, to the medical staff. Dr. Lataifeh specializes in critical care medicine and pulmonary medicine and sees patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

After graduating with a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery Certificate from Jordan University of Science and Technology, Dr. Lataifeh completed two residencies in internal medicine with the most recent at Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University in Huntington, W.Va.

He completed a fellowship in pulmonology and critical care medicine at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in internal medicine and pulmonary medicine.

Dr. Lataifeh decided to join PMC because he was impressed with the state-of-art medical care that the hospital provides in the region.

He said, “My patients can expect my best effort to provide them with cutting-edge and evidence-based care.”

“Being severely ill in the ICU is a difficult experience for the patient and the family,” he added. “I help patients recover physically, but I also think it is important to emotionally support patients and their families during recovery.”
