Hospital Description

Clinique Assalam is a private clinic of the highest standards in Tangier. It was founded in 2007 by 6 doctors of Moroccan origin who had all studied in Belgium and whose vision it was to establish a clinic of European standard in Tangier: Dr. Takkal and Dr. Shergi who are general surgeons, Dr. Mansur and Dr. Akalay who are traumatologists, Dr. Zaidi who is a cardiologist, and Dr. Ktari who is an anaesthetist. Most of the doctors can speak English; all of them speak French, some speak Spanish. Most of the nurses can speak French, but not English, some speak Spanish. Language skills of the patients are like in Moroccan society (native language Darija/Arabic, people of better education speak French and in Tangiers many speak Spanish). French language skills are an advantage, but not a requirement.
