About Dr. Ibrahim

Dr. Ibrahim

Safa Ibrahim, MD, is board-certified in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism, as well as Internal Medicine. She practices out of the Main Campus and Methodist West locations of The Endocrine Center in Houston, Texas. 

Dr. Ibrahim has been calling Houston home for the past 10 years since she migrated to the US from Sudan to pursue her medical training. She earned her medical degree from The National Ribat University in Sudan before completing her internal medicine residency at Trumbull Memorial Hospital in Youngstown, Ohio, where she also served as a Chief Resident in her final year of residency. 

She returned to Texas for her fellowship training in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism at Texas A&M/Baylor Scott and White in Temple. Dr. Ibrahim also holds a public health certificate from The University of Texas in Houston.

Dr. Ibrahim believes that patient education makes a big impact in their treatment journey; that’s why she spends time explaining the disease process and how it can adversely affect our bodies. She is also aware that diabetes and most hormonal imbalances are life-long conditions, so she focuses on improving a patient’s quality of life while optimizing and simplifying their treatment regimen. 

When she’s not in the office, Dr. Ibrahim likes traveling with her husband and three kids to explore different cultures and food. She also enjoys baking.
