Saba S. Sheikh, MD, FACP
Dr. Saba Sheikh graduated from the Fatima Jinnah Medical College
for Women, University of Punjab located in Pakistan in 1984. She
then completed her residency at the Sisters of Charity Hospital,
State University of New York at Buffalo, New York in 1993. She was
Board Certified in Internal Medicine in 1996, recertified in 2006
as well as becoming a Fellow of ACP.
Dr. Sheikh began her career as part of a multispecialty practice
until 1999. It was at this time that she established her own
private practice which she managed on her own with a very small
staff. She established an EHR system that was used in her office
for over 10 years, contracted on her own with insurers in the area,
developed her own financial system to manage her practice, and was
even able to participate in the Medicare pay for performance
program while establishing office systems, policies and procedures
including HIPPAA compliance.
While working in a solo practice, Dr. Sheikh also became very
much involved with the local ACP Maryland Chapter, serving as a
member of the chapter's Women in Medicine Committee, Health &
Public Policy Committee, the Chapter Council, and as our
representative to the Medicare Carrier Advisory Council for a
number of years. She has also been very active as a member of the
MedChi State Medical Society serving as one of our advisors to
their Legislative Committee, where along with Dr. Mary Newman she
represents the voice of internal medicine for the Maryland
Dr. Sheikh has been an inspiration for both women and men in
that she has taken care of her patients through her dedication to
and love of medicine. She has been able to ensure that her
patients' needs and concerns are addressed and met, and has been an
important member of the Columbia area where she practices and
In this day when most physicians seek the support of a large
multispecialty practice, Dr. Sheikh was able to efficiently run and
manage her own office for over ten years. This certainly follows in
the footsteps of Dr. Samuel Asper who practiced and worked in an
era when most physicians were solo entities using their own
initiatives and skills to manage their offices.
Dr. Sheikh is certainly more than deserving of the Samuel Asper
Award, and we congratulate her for this award and her dedication to
her patients and her community.
