Tameem Shoukih, MD
I am a pediatric emergency physician, a clinical assistant professor of emergency medicine, and a clinical assistant adjunct professor of pediatrics at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. I am also board-certified in pediatrics and pediatric emergency medicine. I received my M.D. at the University of Damascus Medical School in Damascus, Syria. My daily job is to relieve suffering in traumatized, injured, and seriously ill children. Having worked in several countries, I have had the great opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and skills on how to approach and manage the most important segment of our society—children. I have been providing this service to a wide spectrum of children and families around the world for the last twenty years. My goal is to deliver the best and most efficient care to every pediatric patient in every given circumstance, keeping in mind that my duty is to maintain the health and wellbeing of the society as a whole. Seeing a child leave my office feeling better is the ultimate satisfaction of my job. I am committed to keep this attitude and goal if I am on the front line where children seek care around the clock. This will not be accomplished without teamwork, and that is why my slogan is “Working Together to Safeguard Children.”

“A person’s a person no matter how small.”—Dr. Seuss
I am originally from the small town of Erie, Illinois. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Trinity College of Nursing in Rock Island. After obtaining this degree, I worked for seven years as an emergency room nurse with a focus in pediatrics. I graduated with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from the University of Illinois Chicago. Throughout my years as an emergency room nurse, I had the amazing opportunity to work with kids and their families. It was during these years that I developed a desire to further my education so I could treat families during their times of need. Being a source of comfort and reassurance is my favorite part of this role. I enjoy traveling with my family. I have a husband, Max, a son, James, and two border collies, Carter and Otto.
Janessa Montgomery, DNP
I became a nurse practitioner to cultivate my love of science and to encourage health and wellness throughout life. I was drawn to pediatrics because of my desire to work with children and their families. I believe that pediatric care should always be family-centered, and I enjoy working with the whole family. Working with children motivates me as a healthcare provider, and I feel honored to care for not only the child but the entire family. As a provider, I strive to deliver high quality care and develop trusting relationships with every patient and family. I completed my education at the University of Iowa and earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice. I completed my clinical practicum at various pediatric clinics in eastern Iowa and am certified in pediatrics.
