Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have the chance to introduce myself. As a physician, I’ve dedicated my life to treat patients and consistently learn in the field of neurology and medicine.
I was born and raised in Tehran, Iran, and did my medical school and residency in neurology there. After a few years of medical practice in the underserved areas of the country as well as a few years as an assistant professor of neurology, I came to U.S. to attend the University of Pennsylvania to study epilepsy and EEG (electroencephalography, the recording of electrical activity in the brain, which is used to diagnose epilepsy). I decided to stay in America and continue my education and career here due to the wealth of knowledge and opportunities that were available. I repeated my neurology residency in Philadelphia and later completed my fellowship training in electrophysiology /neuromuscular disorders at the University of Maryland. I then started my career in neurology at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California.
About my practice
My colleagues and I in the Neurology Department often deal with complicated cases of headache, epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
How I thrive
I enjoy being a family man and spend a lot of time with my children and wife. I exercise regularly and try to eat healthily, which I recommend to my patients, too, because I believe prevention is the best way of approaching medicine. I use my hobbies, which are exercise, traveling, and reading, for my general well-being.
