About

Bio

I am a board certified primary care physician with special interest in nutrition and healthy lifestyle. I have been in practice for almost 10 years and I love what I do. In addition to seeing patients, I teach at medical school which adds to my enthusiasm for learning more each day. In my free time, I make educational (for students) and healthy lifestyle (for public) videos, some of which are uploaded on my youtube channel. Feel free to check it out on youtube under my name. Thanks and hope to see you soon. Dr Dar

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
