“My goal is to have my patients feel confident and assured knowing that they are in the care of a professional who will advocate, provide the highest level of support and quality patient care. I aim to develop a strong patient-provider relationship through trust, confidence, and treating patients like I would treat my family. I take pride in exceeding expectations of others through my performance. Most of all, I aspire to help others look and feel confident about themselves while delivering quality and compassionate care that every patient deserves.”

About Me

Naz Binavi, MSN, NP-C

Practicing medicine allows the potential to impact the human life in a way that is truly unique and the job satisfaction you get is unparalleled. It is a field in which you are tasked with putting others needs first. Medicine is truly a service and not just a profession.

I was attracted to medicine because it is a field that allows you to be a life-long learner. It is a career where your field of expertise continually expands. Therefore, it is important to be up to date on all the latest research and technological advancements. It is a profession that requires critical thinking and precise decision-making. 

A career in medicine carries the unique opportunity to help others through trust, communication and commitment. It is the chance to develop relationships with patients and engage in problem solving that requires you to tailor an individualized treatment plan specific to each patient’s needs. These challenges allow you to become a student of your profession, continually striving to broaden your knowledge and become the best provider to the patients you are committed to serving. 

Dermatology is one of the most diverse specialties treating patients from all age groups with inflammatory, genetic, environmental, occupational and malignant skin diseases. It is a highly varied and rewarding specialty. There's nothing more rewarding than treating a patient for acne, psoriasis, vitiligo or skin cancers and seeing the look on their face after making a positive impact on their health and well being. Making a difference in patients’ lives’ is truly fulfilling. I love what I do. I love my patients.
