Soraya Sharfaei, MD, MS, FACP

Philosophy of Care

Preventive medicine starts by partnering with patients to keep them active and engaged in their healthcare planning and decision-making process. This partnership is achieved through spending time with patients and listening to them in order to better understand their individual healthcare needs and goals. I thrive to keep my patients healthy by utilizing up-to-date medical screening strategies and active chronic disease management.
