Mahsa Rezaei, MD promised herself that no matter what opportunities she might discover in her new home, she could do something that would benefit those in need. She feels a strong desire to give something back to the community, which is the reason she entered into medicine. As a family medicine physician, she speaks Azeri, Turkish and Farsi.
Primary health care became the most appealing field to me as I believe healing starts with addressing the individual as a whole. This approach is only possible through building long-term interpersonal connections with patients.
Dr. Rezaei believes that family medicine physicians have a unique opportunity to provide health care towards prevention, which is, in her opinion, the best kind of intervention. She thoroughly loves building interpersonal relationships with her patients in order to improve their health over time. She strives to treat every patient as she would treat a loved one.
In her spare time, Dr. Rezaei enjoys learning new recipes and hopes to one day have her own cookbook. She enjoys spending time with her family and traveling anywhere she can.
