Abe Farhat, MD
Coming in August 2023!
As an Omaha native, Dr. Abe Farhat is very pleased to be a Family Medicine and Addiction Medicine physician at think. He was drawn to Think Whole Person Healthcare due to its physician-centered approach and its emphasis on delivering high-quality, high-efficiency healthcare.
Dr. Farhat completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and then went into the Peace Corps in Madagascar. He had planned on majoring in chemistry in graduate school following his time with the Peace Corps, but saw the meaningful impact being made by doctors while abroad and felt called to medicine. Upon returning to the United States, he worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant while completing prerequisites and applying to medical school.
He enjoyed every rotation in medical school but chose family medicine which allowed for flexibility in shaping his career. While encountering many patients with substance use disorders in the primary care setting during residency, Dr. Farhat desired a higher level of competence in their treatment; he took one additional year of training to complete an addiction medicine fellowship.
When Dr. Farhat is not working, he loves spending time with his wife and children. He also enjoys many outdoor activities, including cycling, hiking, camping, swimming, and flying drones.
