Dr. Baharloo's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Baharloo "Dr. Baharloo achievements as a foot and ankle surgeon stem from her hard work and dedication to strive for excellence in everything she does. This was evident by her completion of her undergraduate degree with summa cum laude, majoring in Chemistry, in Houston Texas. She then went on to graduate with honors and receive her Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, where she was named amongst the "Who's Who, Among Students in American Universities. She continued to show off her natural abilities and drive to achieve when she completed a rigorous top-tier, three-year, surgical residency program at West Houston Medical Center where she obtained extensive training in forefoot and rearfoot reconstructive surgery, wound care, and limb salvage with a particular interest in new techniques in reconstructive surgery. She excelled during her residency, having more than tripled the required surgical cases needed for completion of her program. Her intense surgical training included total ankle replacements, major foot and ankle reconstructions, Achilles Tendon repairs, Arthroscopic techniques, trauma, and countless other surgeries. Dr. Baharloo is also currently board qualified in Foot Surgery and in Reconstructive Rear Foot & Ankle Surgery with the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. She is also a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association, Texas Podiatric Medical Association, and American Academy of Podiatric Practice Management. She is truly a rising star in the podiatric foot and ankle field. Dr Baharloo's excellent surgical skills are only surpassed by her compassion and love of taking care of patients. This shines through in her kind personality and her infectious positive outlook and can-do attitude. As patients get to know her, they quickly come to fall for her charms, and are always impressed by her vast knowledge regarding their foot and ankle conditions. Her cultural sensitivity and empathetic nature stem from her early upbringing inShiraz, Iran, where kind hospitality is a way of life. Her Persian background also accounts for her fluency in Farsi. Dr. Baharloo enjoys painting, sculpture, cycling and gardening in her free time. Dr. Baharloo is married and lives in Sugar Land with her husband Dr. Steinhauser."

I was skeptical about a new Dr., But Dr. Baharloo put that all away immediately. I took my 11 year old son in for some badly ingrown toenails and he was scared. She put him at ease from the get go and in turn did the same for me. She was very friendly and made us all feel at home. Thank you Dr....more
