“The rewards of the patient-doctor relationship are based on open communication. I am a very good listener and explainer. I work to understand the context of my patients’ experiences so the advice I provide is personal and clear. My goal is through working together my patients will have a better understanding of their health and healthy behaviors which include the treatment options I recommend.”

Biography

Dr. Jasmine Moghissi is a board-certified Family Physician in Fairfax, Virginia and practices family and aesthetic medicine and also has been a Visiting Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Virginia School of Medicine since 2009. She treats people of all ages and deals with medical conditions, weight management, skin conditions, and state of the art disease prevention. Her goal is to provide high quality, medically proven care. Whether you are a diabetic, need a routine physical, information on how to prevent heart disease, or just want smoother, wrinkle-free skin, she will take your concerns seriously and give you an honest assessment of what can and should be done.

Dr. Moghissi’s philosophy is to treat the whole person and the whole family. As a family physician, she is trained to meet the healthcare needs of the entire family regardless of age, sex, or the nature of the illness. She is comfortable treating children, adults and the elderly. She performs routine physicals (including GYN exams), along with treating acute and chronic illnesses.

For the past decade, she has been interested in and practicing aesthetic medicine. She realizes there are many options available locally, and has tried to distinguish herself by approaching the cosmetic field as she approaches general medicine. She works to provide high quality, medically sound means to improve appearance and reverse aging in the skin.

Another passion of Dr. Moghissi’s is health and wellness. She offers weight loss counseling and specialized metabolic testing and counseling using Advanced Lipid testing for heart disease prevention. Recognizing that traditional medicine does not solve everyone’s ills, she has now also added some functional and integrative medicine to her practice.

If you are looking for a partner in your family’s quest for a healthy life, Dr. Moghissi would love to be your family doctor.
