He is located in Eatontown, New Jersey and is affiliated with the Jersey Shore University Medical Center, the Monmouth Medical Center, and the Clara Maass Medical Center. He currently holds a 4 out of 5-star patient rating. In 2014, he received the Patients’ Choice Award. He also won the honor of the Compassionate Doctor Recognition in 2014.

Dr. Saad is a role model for anyone who has goals that they want to meet. He is a living example of how you can achieve success no matter who you are. Dr. Saad spent most of his childhood in Kuwait. His family relocated there because they were displaced during the Jewish Diaspora. Two valuable lessons that Dr. Saad teaches is to never settle for less than your goals. He admits that he started off as a poor Palestinian refugee who later became successful in more ways than one. His other lesson is not to put off tasks that you can complete today for tomorrow. There is no doubt that looking at Dr. Saad and his accomplishments prove that both of these lessons are true. He graduated from Cairo University Medical School with honors in 1971. He achieved the recognition of being salutatorian of his class. He later went on to become the only pediatric surgeon to be board certified by the United States. Due to the fact that he was the only pediatric surgeon that fluently spoke English and Arabic, he received an invitation to serve the Royal family in Saudi Arabia. It was an opportunity of a lifetime. Dr. Saad got to meet a lot of new people and learn a lot about the Saudi way of life. His family also enjoyed the chance to meet new people. The opportunity lasted for close to 5 years. Upon returning to the states, he wanted to find a way to minimize the pain and time it takes to recover for his patients. So, he created a new procedure that diminished the need for multiple incisions. Multiple incisions increase the chances for infection and other complications. Using one incision lowered the amount of time it takes for the child to recover and it reduces the pain. Not to mention, it gives the patient the same positive result. The new procedure was a great success as it has been used over 2000 times throughout his career. Dr. Saad proves to all of us that what our minds believe, we can achieve. He is by far a role model for people of all ages and backgrounds. He is not only an innovator, and an achiever, but a man that has made positive changes in the health industry.
