Philosophy of care:
“I was inspired to become a physician to help people and serve my community. My approach to patient care is three-fold: first, I ensure that I thoroughly listen to my patients. Second, I practice evidence-based medicine – meaning I stay abreast of the best available current and emerging scientific research in the field. Third, I explore integrative GI concepts and holistic care when appropriate. My treatment plans may involve dietary changes as well as exercise and mind-body therapies like yoga and mindfulness.”
In her spare time, Dr. Razeghi enjoys traveling and exploring new places, discovering new and exciting podcasts, reading, and staying fit with strength training, yoga, and hiking.
