Turlock, CA- Family practice physician Sara Hamidi, M.D., has joined the Emanuel Family Practice office at 2121 Colorado Ave. in Turlock.
Dr. Hamidi is board certified in geriatrics, an interest that began during her family practice residency training at Indiana University. She also completed a geriatric medicine fellowship at Indiana.
"During residency, some of my patients were older and I enjoyed working with them," she said. "I saw that there is an aging population in the United States and so I decided to do the specialized training. But I like caring and treating all ages."
For the past three years, Dr. Hamidi was with a private group practice located in Grants Pass, Oregon. In Oregon, Dr. Hamidi treated nursing home patients as part of her primary care practice and emphasized preventive care. "I believe preventive medicine is important for all ages, but especially for older populations," she said.
Dr. Hamidi earned her doctor of medicine at the University of Isfahan Medical School in Iran and completed a general medicine internship in 1991. She practiced general medicine for 10 years before moving to the U.S. in 2004 for residency training.
"I love working in the medical field and being part of patient care," she said.
She is fluent in English, Farsi (Persian) and Turkish.
Dr. Hamidi can be reached at Emanuel Family office at 2121 Colorado Ave or (209) 664-5175.
