Dr. Fayik Abdi is one of seven surgeons on the staff of Aramco's $7.5 million Dhahran Health Center. The Surgical Unit in the 230-bed main company health center completes an average of about 3,400 operations a year. Since one member of the surgical staff is usually on vacation on a rotational basis, it works out that each of the other six performs nearly 50 operations every month. They also meet a full schedule of clinic appointments, see their postoperative patients in the wards at least once a day, and are on 24-hour call for emergencies about twice a week. Whatever time remains is for families and the hobbies that the doctors require for relaxation from their tension-filled working hours. Middle East and European-trained Doctor Abdi, however, shares with the medical profession everywhere a dedication to his calling that helps see him through his often arduous daily rounds.
