Azadeh "Azzie" Farin, MD

“I have always been inspired to improve the quality of life of those around me, and medicine gives me that opportunity. I am incredibly committed to my patients’ well-being and working with them to optimize every aspect of their care, so their experience is a positive one. My promise to my patients is I will make sure their condition is treated the right way and the best way for them. I feel great satisfaction when a patient reports that their life has been improved because of the care and treatment my team and I provided.”

"I became a neurosurgeon because I want to remedy the significant problems our patients face, most of which are serious enough to threaten their quality of life and sometimes their lives. Our patients often face disorders that dramatically impact their daily lives; to the extent that I can help alleviate the strain their disorders have imposed on them, I am satisfied. I aim to restore and improve my patients’ quality of life. Having gone through illness and surgery myself, I know firsthand what it is like to be a patient, and I strive to make my patients’ experiences with illness as positive as possible. I treat each of my patients and their concerns as seriously as I would those of my own family members. I don’t offer surgery unless it is the best and only option. When surgery is being considered, I like to do only what is needed for the best outcome and no more. My best reward is my patients’ satisfaction. If they are better, then I feel fulfilled."
