My goal in caring patients with neurological disease is to establish a unique relationship with patients to ensure continuity of care. I'd like to work with patients’ spouses, families, and loved ones to guarantee the quality of care.
I'd love helping my patients manage their physical and emotional responses to the stressors. I believe in delivering both patient-centered and patient-driven healthcare services and brace the cultural and spiritual values while securing the privacy and confidentiality of my patients. Supporting the patients in achievement of optimal function is crucial to ensure the highest quality of life.
Dr. Rezaei is a neuromuscular neurologist trained at UC San Diego. She is offering care for adults and children with neuromuscular diseases such as Myasthenia Gravis, ALS, Neuropathy, Myopathy, Myotonia and adults with various neurological conditions such as Headache, Seizure, Dementia and more. She has special interest and expertise in Myasthenia Gravis and Autoimmune Myopathies.
Dr. Rezaei's research is focused on targeted application of stem cells for neurological disorder treatments. She also has interest in ALS pathophysiology and ways to limit this pathology.
