    Biography

    Dr. Safaei has been practicing medicine for more than 13 years, however, her choice to pursue this career was solidified many years earlier. As a child, she was very close to her grandmother and watched her suffer through many illnesses. This was a defining moment for Dr. Safaei as she promised her grandmother that she would become a physician and help others to maximize their quality of life and provide the best care possible.

    As an internist, she takes a comprehensive approach with each patient and makes sure she treats the whole body, not just the symptom. She is thrilled to be a part of Hoag Medical Group which allows her the creativity and individuality to provide her patients with superior health care services.

    Always focusing on the patient, Dr. Safaei believes that practicing medicine is only successful when it is a collaboration between a patient and their physician. “I educate my patients and provide them with resources, support, and invite them to become active participants in their own health goals. I am passionate about what I do and work from the heart.”

    Fluent in Farsi and able to communicate in medical Spanish, Dr. Safaei earned her medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine. She then continued on to complete her Internal Medicine Internship at the New York Medical College and Residency at Kaiser Permanente in Northern California, an affiliate program of Stanford University. Additionally, she completed training in Clinical Homeopathy.

    Outside of work, she enjoys practicing yoga, traveling, learning about new cultures, reading, and spending time outdoors with her family.
