Our new PA, an Open House, and flu shots!

News and Information for Healthier Families  

September 2011   

I hope you have all had a healthy and restful summer and are ready for the fall. My summer has been crazy and I'm hoping for a nice restful fall. In addition to our billing issues (which thankfully are finally running much smoother!) and continued issues with our new electronic health records software (also running much smoother), I sent my first born off to college (is there such thing as half an empty nest?) and we've had quite a change in personnel.

Most important – Hanh Tran, PA, who has been with me for the past 2 ½ years, is leaving this month. I hired her as a full-time employee, but her practice never grew enough to keep her busy. At this time, she is working part-time at a temporary job at another practice, and is still looking for that elusive perfect full-time position. We hope you all join us in wishing her the best of luck in her future endeavors, we will miss her!

Since we have too many patients for me to see by myself, I have hired a part-time PA, Kristin Vidwans. She will be working Monday evenings and Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday during the day. (Misty Tax, NP will be moving her evening to Tuesday nights). I am very excited about having Kristin start; she is an experienced PA, very capable, and a generally nice person. I hope you all like her as much as I do. She has been, and will continue to, work part-time for another physician on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please welcome her warmly!

Other news: Flu Shots are in! We have both adult and pediatric flu shots in limited numbers. Please call if you'd like one.

Please see below for our information on our open house! Janet will be visiting (and working) here that week and we wanted to take advantage of her being here. Although technically the specials are for the day of the open house only, we will honor the sale prices for injectables (Botox and Juvederm) earlier that week also, as long as you come in to be injected while Janet is here. Please come - we'd like to see as many of you as possible!


To your good health!
Dr. Jasmine Moghissi

About Dr. Jasmine Moghissi

Welcome to my family medical practice! We are delighted to be here in the Vienna/Fairfax area, which is where I live with my own family.

I treat people of all ages, and all conditions. My philosophy is to treat the whole person, and the whole family. As a family physician, I am trained to meet the health care needs of the entire family regardless of age, sex, or the nature of the illness. I am comfortable treating newborns, children, adults and the elderly. I perform routine physicals (including GYN exams), along with treating acute and chronic illnesses; however, I do not deliver babies.

In our practice, we treat all illnesses, but I do have some special interests and areas of expertise. I am an advocate of breastfeeding, and have assisted many moms and babies in becoming successful at it. I enjoy pediatrics and use my own experience as a mom to help my patients. I have extensive experience in women's health issues, and special interests in the prevention, treatment, and early diagnosis of diabetes and heart disease. I am honored that many specialists in the area routinely refer their patients to me for treatment of their medical and psychiatric problems. If you are looking for a partner in your family's quest for a healthy life, I would love to be your family doctor.
