About Me

My passion for family medicine began during the time I spent working in an Afghan refugee camp located in Iran. That same passion lives on inside me today.

I now provide care as a board-certified family practitioner here in the United States, and I am happy to enjoy a unique bond with my patients and their families. This allows me to engage in discussions that focus not only on short-term solutions, but also on long-term health goals. I believe health is the most important factor in anyone's life and it's a privilege to help my patients achieve better health.

Preventative services including health screenings and behavioral modification are an integral part of my practice. I treat patients of all ages from a variety of cultures, and tailor treatment plans specifically to each person's unique needs while actively involving the patient in his or her own health.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University because our goal is to provide the best possible care for all patients. Having the opportunity to work in an academic environment with easy access to different specialties, pharmacists and nurses allows me to provide my patients with the most current diagnostic methods, tests and treatments.

In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading, cooking, enjoying the outdoors and playing the santoor, an Indian musical string instrument.

She's the best. She always listens carefully and discusses options. She seems to truly care about my well-being.

Dr. Behrioz was very knowledgeable and showed a lot of concern for my health issue. however, I think she could have explained things better, took more time, and involved me in her treatment recommendations (I.e provide me with options and let me make the decision)

My exchange with Dr. Behrooz was excellent. She patiently answered questions and even volunteered a couple of concerns that I had wanted to ask her about, but had forgotten to ask. She is empathic, thorough, knowledgeable, and engaged. I have already recommended her to a coworker.

I love Dr Behrooz. While there is always room for improvement, she has been my doctor for many years and I trust her and I know she cares about my wellbeing. She helped me through a difficult time a couple years ago and it made a huge difference.
