Meet Farzad Kamyar, MD, MBA, ABPN, ABPM
Director of Collaborative Care | MOTHER Program
Our nation has been deeply impacted by the opioid epidemic for more than 20 years. Yet, mental health and substance use disorders continue to be some of the most undertreated medical conditions. That’s why Dr. Brian Iriye and I developed the Maternal Opioid Treatment Health Education and Recovery (MOTHER) program at High Risk Pregnancy Center. We wanted to help fill this dangerous gap in treatment for pregnant women who may be struggling with mental health or substance use disorders. I’m proud to say it’s been life-changing for so many mothers and their children who are often overlooked.
As the collaborative-care psychiatrist, I oversee all aspects of the MOTHER Program to ensure every patient receives compassionate, exemplary psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and psychotherapy throughout any stage of pregnancy (prenatal, pregnancy, and postpartum).
Since joining High Risk Pregnancy Center in 2018, Dr. Kamyar has helped thousands of women improve their health and well-being by providing them with years of specialized medical information, knowledge, expertise, and a keen listening ear. Not only does this approach help build strong doctor-patient relationships, it also helps his patients make informed decisions about their health.
In his free time, Dr. Kamyar enjoys spending time with family and friends in the great outdoors.
