Growing up Dr. Megahed always loved children and had an abundance of empathy for everyone around her. Ever since she was a little girl, she would gather young kids around her and mentor them. Although born and raised in Texas, she takes pride in her Egyptian heritage. Dr. Megahed, or “Dr. Mona” as her patients call her, graduated Summa Cum Laude from Houston Baptist University with a B.S. in Physics and Biology. In 2004 she received her Medical Doctorate from Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Medicine. After graduating medical school, Dr. Mona practiced medicine in several states including Georgia, New Jersey and Texas. Before moving to New Jersey, she worked at East Cobb Pediatrics for a year and absolutely loved it. She is excited to be back!
Dr. Mona loves working with children in every capacity. She has a special interest in preventive medicine, obesity management and helping those with developmental delay. She has three children; twin girls and a son who keep her on her toes. Dr. Mona loves keeping busy and has quite a bit on her plate. She is an active member of the school PTO and is a strong believer in education. She has given professional development classes to school teachers and presentations to students. Some of the topics she has covered include Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Learning Disabilities, Food Allergies, Hygiene, Puberty and Healthy Eating. She has also been working with refugees recently resettled to the United States since 2015 and is intimately involved with Ethaar, an organization that helps families have a seamless transition to life in the US.
She is well-cultured and enjoys traveling. She also enjoys volunteering with her children, reading a good book, taking brisk walks outside and playing the piano. She is bilingual and speaks both English and Arabic fluently.
She feels blessed to be part of an amazing team and looks forward to meeting, working with and really getting to know all of the East Cobb patients.
