Dr Mazen Fakeeh
President & Chairman of the Board, Dr Soliman Fakeeh Hospital Company (fakeeh.care)
I have known Dr. Adeel Riaz since he joined our KAUST operation as Consultant Family physician in 2013. He was later on offered the role of the Chief of Staff at KAUST Health in 2014 and he has led the operation since then. His dedication and passion toward the success of KAUST Health is undeniable. Since we took over the operations in KAUST, he has helped shape KAUST Health in to a modern and stable ambulatory health center offering world class services to the KAUST community. He has also led the KH team to their first Joint Commission International Accreditation.
He shares the same Fakeeh vision of being the best healthcare provider in the Kingdom. Dr. Adeel’s management style is contemporary; a combination of different attributes and flexibility. He always welcomes new concepts from his team to let their own creativity flourish, but remains in control of the situation. I have full trust in his decision making and his approach in keeping the organization as where it is now. Everyone in this company has nothing but respect and admiration for Dr. Adeel. He is loved by many including his patients; who are constantly giving positive feedbacks to him as their Family Medicine doctor, and commended by many of his staff and his colleagues.
Dr. Adeel is an exemplary Chief of Staff. This young leader has a lot of things to offer. I always wish him success; as the Chief of Staff of KAUST and for his future undertakings.

Dr. Adeel proved himself to be a capable clinician and manager. He is clearly able to transmit his passion and talent for work to his colleagues. Similarly, his clinical work was met with rave reviews. Dr. Adeel is one of my few colleagues to whom I will entrust my patients when I travel. Dr. Adeel was also a terrific citizen and a leader in the KAUST Clinic. He handled responsibility well, was resourceful, and took initiative to maintain and ensure that safety and quality standards were met. He took on many of the responsibilities of a clinic chief of staff and excelled in everything he did. In short, I give Adeel my highest recommendation. He is one of my finest colleagues—an outstanding manager and talented physician. He has demonstrated an uncanny ability to unmask challenges that play parallel roles not only in patient- physician relationships but also among physicians of different background in such a culturally sensitive environment. He would be a good catch for any department
