Dr. Alar comes from a humble background and is the youngest of eight siblings. He dreamt of being a doctor as a young boy and left his home in Kenya at just 17 to pursue his dreams at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. He was able to overcome homesickness due to his ambition and deep desire to practice medicine. Inbetween working hard to earn his degree in surgery, he often enjoyed watching the Dallas TV series during leisure time. Eventually the sunny skies of Texas inspired him to move to the United States. There he completed a fellowship in gastroenterology at the prestigious Henry Ford University Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
Dr. Alar is Board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in both gastroenterology and internal medicine. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract such as acid reflux, stomach ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease, liver, pancreas and gallbladder problems, colon and rectal polyps or tumors, hemorrhoids, etc. All endoscopic procedures are performed at Sand Lake Surgery Center, a state of the art facility located near Dr. Phillips Hospital.

As busy as his professional life is, Dr. Alar loves to spend time with his family and friends. He also enjoys meeting people outside of his professional realm. One of his greatest passions is to travel the world and meet people of other cultures, a passion that came about while he was in medical school in Scotland and began backpacking and traveling through Europe. Dr. Alar now resides in Florida where he enjoys walking the beaches of the West Coast, watching the sunsets and soaking up “the Kenyan weather.”
“My life has been truly blessed with a profession that I enjoy, and the opportunity to serve and make people feel better. To me, the most important things in life are your faith in God, good health, your family and a happy home”
