About Parnaz Partovitabar

Parnaz Partovitaba, PA-C, is a certified physician assistant on the team at Mindful Urgent Care in the New York City neighborhoods of West Hempstead, Midtown, and the Financial District.

Parnaz earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Allameh Tabataba’i University in Tehran, Iran. After relocating to the United States, she earned another bachelor’s degree in biology from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York.

In her practice, Parnaz employs a holistic approach to treating psychiatric issues, integrating modern neuroscience, humanistic perspective, and the patient’s subjective experience. She focuses on the interaction between her patients’ emotions, thoughts, physical sensations, and lived experiences to determine why they struggle.

Parnaz maximizes her patients’ strength and resilience by forming genuine, meaningful, and nonjudgmental relationships with them. She’s particularly skilled at empathizing without letting her own opinions get in the way and guiding patients on an exciting journey toward a higher quality of life. She’s most inspired by hearing the diverse stories of patients with all different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

Outside of work, Parnaz enjoys watching “Breaking Bad,” reading Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels, and spending time with her adorable cat, Bijan.

 

What’s the most inspiring part of your job?

The most inspiring part of my job is being able to listen to the stories of diverse patients, from different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, forming relationships with them which help bring them closer to their potential. I always focus on the interaction between emotions, thoughts, physical sensations, and lived experience. Within their broader context, this helps determine why they are struggling, and is the beginning of an exciting journey to a higher quality of life.

Why did you choose to specialize/work in psychiatry?

I cherish the opportunity to form genuine, meaningful, and non-judgmental helping relationships with patients, helping them maximize their strengths and resilience. It is my ability to empathize without letting my own opinions get in the way that makes psychiatry the perfect field for me. I realize the importance of a holistic model to psychiatric issues; integrating modern neuroscience, humanistic perspectives, and patient’s subjective experience. This understanding helps me bring a particular blend of insight and intuition to the field.

Cats or dogs?

I absolutely love dogs, but I’m more of a cat person. I have an adorable cat called Bijan who I couldn’t live without!

What are you currently watching?

I’m far behind the rest of the world, but I’m in the middle of Breaking Bad. There is nothing on TV with the same level of character development, careful plotting, and thematic genius.

What’s the last book you read?

The last instalment of Elena Ferrante’s four part Neapolitan Novels. It’s called The Story of the Lost Child and is sinister and thrilling. I recommend it to anyone looking for a fast-paced, insightful story.
