Anas Kawawey M.D.

I graduated from the University of Aleppo, Faculty of Medicine in Syria. Afterwards, I completed Internal Medicine residency followed by a combined Chief Medical residency/Academic General Internal Medicine at Loma Linda University Medical Center. That was followed by fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the same institution.


During my fellowship training, I developed a great passion for advanced gastrointestinal endoscopy including Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) with Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA), Endoscopic Retrograde CholangioPancreaticography (ERCP), HALO ablation for Barrett’s esophagus and Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) of large and flat polyps. This motivated me to pursue further training at the Harvard affiliated - Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

In April 2014, I joined Southland GI Medical Group. Soon after that, we established an EUS program at Menifee Valley Medical Center which allowed me to offer EUS and other advanced procedures locally.

I am glad to bring these much-needed skills to the community to help our patients and be part of their cure and healing.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children in addition to playing basketball, table-tennis and tennis, and following-up on the latest technology trends.
