Healing Philosophy:

Dr. Majd views patient care as a multidisciplinary approach including lifestyle, nutrition, and complementary and alternative therapies. He believes medicine is science, art, observation and communication. Sometimes patients express their conditions verbally; holistic medicine entrains one to also listen to the “body’s communication.” Based on what he observes and what the patient shares, Dr. Majd strives to bring together a holistic plan to return the patient to their optimal health.

Beyond simply delivering care, he also believes we need to empower patients through education and encouragement to take charge of their journey to well-being.
