This content was provided by Dr. Afshari "Glenview Woman of Today Scholarship in high school; female most likely to succeed. Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and Immunology and Bachelor of Arts in Near Eastern Studies from University of Michigan. Medical School at the University of Illinois at Chicago with a General Assembly Scholarship. Preliminary Internal Medicine and Neurology residency at University of Michigan.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Afshari "You need to dedicate time and commitment to figuring out a patient complaint. That's why patients get a full hour for all visits. I am available to them at all times. Overall, my patients do much better that those who have gone to system Neurologists as they have my complete dedicated time and attention and follow-through."
