Learn about the local boutique medical practice that’s taking a personalized approach and empowering women to feel their best from the inside out.
Dr. Somi Javaid loves empowering women. That’s why she opened the doors to her own practice, Dr. Somi Javaid and Associates: to provide the highest quality patient care and empower women to make them feel and look their best through every stage of life.
“We treat any condition that is preventing our patients from feeling like her complete self,” says Donna Abdelnour, Certified Nurse Practitioner at Dr. Somi Javaid and Associates.
Prior to opening the practice, Abdelnour and Javaid worked in standard medical practices that were vulnerable to the increasingly large and often-strained medical system. They were acutely aware of the frustration their patients were feeling under this strain. Both practitioners wanted to provide a more personalized experience and take a holistic approach to their patients’ medical needs. “I wanted women to get the attention they deserve,” she recalls. “I wanted a one stop shop for patients where they would feel safe, healthy, pampered, and empowered. I wanted them to personally know myself and my staff.”
According to Abdelnour, this unique practice does just that by providing medial treatments in the comfort of a spa setting. Walking in, you’re greeted by a warm front desk team, there is low level lighting, stone walls, and beautiful chandeliers. “Patients always comment on the environment here and how much they love it, as they can tell we are all happy,” Abdelnour says. “I believe empowering each other starts from within.”
Abdelnour knows first-hand the importance of empowerment when it comes to women’s health, as she was inspired to become a medical practitioner after her mother’s near-death experience. “[My mother] was misdiagnosed over and over again because her practitioners would not listen to her,” Abdelnour says. “She ended up needing emergency Quadruple Bypass surgery [at the age of 45].”
Today, listening is the pinnacle of personalized care for Abdelnour and Javaid. “All of our patents know they are cared for and leave feeling they have been heard and empowered,” Abdelnour says.
To accomplish that, Abdelnour says women can receive both the medical treatments they need and spa services they desire all under one roof. The unique benefit of their medical practice and medi-spa is that there is always a physician present. “We treat any condition that is preventing the patient from feeling like her complete self, whether that barrier is gynecological, aesthetic or sexual,” Abdelnour says.
Beyond annual gynecological care, Javaid provides a holistic approach to the sexual health concerns that present themselves throughout a woman’s life. For patients facing menopause, there is a host of hormone treatments including Bioidentical Hormones which are structurally identical to the natural hormones your body creates and is an alternative to conventional hormone therapy. Javaid also provides non-hormonal treatment options that assist in alleviating menopause symptoms for those patients that are not candidates for estrogen therapy.
With hormonal changes also come fluctuations in the body, this is all part of a natural progression. Abdelnour says Javaid is sensitive to the fact that women’s concerns extend beyond just physical health and span into aesthetic procedures that require a doctors medical training. Which is exactly why her practice provides safe, non-invasive alternatives to plastic surgery. Javaid is the only area physician that performs UltraShape. This procedure targets and breaks down fat cells. VelvaShape is a complimentary and also non invasive procedure that treats loose skin and cellulite that shrinks trouble spots exercising does not seem to be reaching. “Patients have lost anywhere from one to five inches from their thighs, abdomen or flanks. The beauty of UltraShape is that it is quick and painless,” Abdelnour says.
In addition to the medical portion of Javaid’s practice there is a medi-spa in house, which provides an array of aesthetic services in order to enhance beauty and ease the signs of aging. This all begins with a customized consultation which may include the Reveal Skin Analysis system. This analysis delves below the skin surface to determines future problems which allows for a customized and effective approach to treating the skin.
