About Me

Maryam Yazdanshenas, MD, earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of South Alabama, in Mobile, where she donated her time to tutoring students in the athletic department in the subjects of English, Mathematics, and Chemistry and assisted students with Special Disabilities. After completing her medical training in Bakersfield, California, Dr. Yazdanshenas is excited to be living and working in San Clemente.

I chose family medicine because of its versatility and the opportunity to care for the entire family through all the stages of their lives.  I realize that patients sometimes come to their doctors not only for physical ailments but also for emotional support. I believe a good physician is not only a healer, but provides comfort, support and friendship. I strive to do those things for my patients.

When not in the office, Dr. Yazdanshenas enjoys running or biking to stay in shape. She also enjoys traveling, dancing and spending time at the beach.
