About Dr. Yekalo Beyene: 

Dr. Beyene first trained as an electrical engineer before pursuing medicine. His interest in healthcare was piqued through studying alongside his pre-med friends, and soon he was on a path to delivering care in rural areas. He earned his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine. 


“I have been working in FQHC clinics for the last 10 years, as I have found it very rewarding to work in underserved areas,” Dr. Beyene shares. "I chose medicine to help people, and I appreciate the mission of FQHCs—anyone can get the healthcare services they need, regardless of their income, origin, race, or sex, including patients who do not have the means to be seen at private practices. What I enjoy about family medicine is getting to know my patients. To successfully treat the whole patient—all of their needs—we need to know them and what matters to them. Family medicine gives us that opportunity to connect. The time you spend with patients and showing them that you care really matters.”
