Dr, Saad was raised in one of the toughest environments one can experience to become such an accomplished Physician. Someone once mentioned that necessity is the mother of invention. Dr. Saad comes from a family of fighters. Having been born in Palestine and raised in Kuwait, hardship, and strife was the second name to everyone in his locality.

Dr. Saad is born of a family of eight siblings. Three of his elder brothers are surgeons. Another set of three are engineers and one of them is a teacher. That is not a small feat to achieve in one family. Dr, Saad himself never really thought he would be a physician in the first place. In one of the interviews, he points out that one of the reasons he ended up in the operating rooms is that he didn’t cherish the prospect of working in the hot Kuwait sun that he saw his brothers endure. His mind changed to yearn for a career that would allow him to have an air-con blowing some cool air in his face while working indoors. It then occurred to him that medicine was a good option.
