New Beginnings
Dr. Uzma Kewan brings her smile and years of knowledge and expertise to serve patients in our local community.

Uzma Kewan, M.D., came of age in the educational hub of Pakistan, the historical city of Lahore. As she began to think about the life she wanted to lead and the kind of career she hoped to pursue, she found the perfect role model in her grandfather.

“He was a doctor in our village, and who he was and what he did inspired me,” Dr. Kewan recalls. “He was respected throughout our village, and I loved the fact that he got to help people and heal them through his work, regardless of what time of the day.”
She went on to earn her medical degree from Fatima Jinnah Medical University in Lahore, focusing on internal medicine.
“I like internal medicine because it deals with multiple aspects of the human body, multiple  systems,” she says. “You get to treat patients as a whole, not just treat one part of the body. You also have the opportunity to make a lasting bond with patients, which is why I wanted to go into medicine in the first place.”
Dr. Kewan got married and moved to the United States. She and her husband, Raheem, had three children. The family settled in New Jersey, where she volunteered, built on her education in medicine, and performed research across the river at the University of Pennsylvania. She then had an opportunity to complete her residency training at Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville, Florida, north of Tampa. The family picked up and moved again.
After a year of completing the residency, and managing an outpatient physician practice, Dr. Kewan and her family decided to move back to the Northeast, this time settling in Pennsylvania. While she appreciated her time in Florida, she says the Northeast “feels more like home.” She currently works as an internist and hospitalist for a private practice in Bucks County, as well as medical director for a hospice care service.
She enjoys the work, but her ambition has long been to one day have her own practice.
Dr. Kewan describes herself as compassionate, hardworking, polite, and approachable. Licensed to practice medicine in Florida, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, she also received board certification through the American Board of Internal Medicine. She intends to build her knowledge base and gather interest from prospective patients.
“It has been a long journey since I started as a young girl in Pakistan,” she says. “I have been very fortunate to work with a lot of great people and develop my skills in different areas of practice. Throughout my career, I have always tried to establish close bonds with the patients I have treated, and that will remain the case for as long as I practice medicine.”
