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.

    Dr. Behrooz is the best. She is thorough in his examination & does not think twice about referring you to specialists, x-rays & blood tests if needed. She spotted my fracture after an x-ray & immediately set up an appt. for me to see an orthopedic surgeon (Dr. Pfeffer) who told me Dr. Behrooz was really on the ball. Scheduled me for surgery the very next day.
