From Dr. Babak Moini:
While I originally went to medical school with a plan to become a cardiologist, I soon found my calling in primary care and changed course. I truly cherish my long-term relationships with my patients, forming a trusting bond while also being intellectually challenged by seeing all sorts of medical conditions.
I have practiced as an internist since 2013 and I love what I do. I personally follow a whole food, plant-based diet and exercise as a recreational triathlete, and I enjoy helping my patients improve their health through healthy lifestyle changes. While I practice evidence-based western medicine, my goal is to help patients reverse and prevent chronic diseases naturally as much as possible.
