Philosophy

"At each stage of my education and training, I was instructed, inspired, challenged and guided by preeminent clinicians and scientists who consistently held those under their tutelage to the highest of standards and expectations. Their models established for me the examples and standards by which I now attempt to serve, teach, mentor and counsel. My commitment to an ongoing process of learning, striving for excellence and helping others advance is also motivated by the knowledge that those of my faith in my home country of Iran are forbidden from pursuing higher education.

Dr. Javid was awesome. My illness is rare and I think some questions couldn't be answered. I wish she would have explained the pathology report a little more to me so I understand what it all means. Dr. Javid's assistant, Tracy was fabulous. She took care of any questions and concerns before and after my surgery. She's a gem.
