Biography

Dr. Arezo Maria Fathie

Dr. Arezo Maria Fathie has been double board certified in two specialties, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. She is currently pending a new Certification with NBPAS. Her clinic started in  Henderson, Nevada in 2001,  called Generations Medical Center,  because she provides caring and compassionate medical services to infants, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. After 10 years, her office moved to SW Las Vegas where she has been since 2010. Her youngest patients are newborn infants and the oldest patients are in their hundreds. This is why many families entrust the health care of their entire family to Dr. Fathie. All facets of quality medical care from childhood physicals to medication management for chronic health conditions is provided by Dr. Fathie herself .  She has provided over the years cosmetic options with medical spa treatments such as photo skin rejuvenation and IPL laser hair removal to complete your health and beauty inside and out.

Dr. Fathie received her undergraduate degree in Third World Health and Development from the University of California, Berkeley in 1987. This included one year of study at the Institute of Political Science in Paris, France. She completed post-baccalaureate pre-med courses at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the University of California, Northridge in 1989. She graduated from the George Washington University Medical School in 1994. She trained four more years at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, Virginia in a combined Internal Medicine and Pediatric (Med-Peds) internship and residency program. She speaks French, some Swedish and Farsi.

As a founding Member of the Department of Homeland Security and the Silver State Response Team (Nevada DMAT), Dr. Fathie could be deployed to provide medical assistance in the event of a local, state, or national tragedy. Dr. Fathie has served as a Trustee, Treasurer, and Secretary on the Board of Trustees of the Clark County Medical Society and a several time Delegate to the Nevada State Medical Association. She is an adjunct professor  and/or Clinical Preceptor of Touro University, Samuel Merritt University, Chamberlain University, US University, and several others.  Over the years, she has been a clinical teaching site for Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners completing their externships.  Her office also receives and trains medical assistants from Las Vegas College and PIMA Medical Assisting programs, to name a few.   Dr. Fathie is dedicated to teaching and passing on health care knowledge to eager students who will provide the health care for tomorrow’s generations.

Since 2002, Dr. Fathie was the Medical Director of the Salvation Army Pathways program which rehabilitates mentally ill and vocationally challenged individuals until that program closed.  She is a member of P.E.O. a women’s philanthropic organization since 1985 and a member of VASA an American-Scandinavian cultural organization since 1980. She was an active member of the Iranian-American Physician organization of Las Vegas, Nevada when it was organized.  She has founded the past five Solutions for Solo Practitioners Roundtable Forums designed to assist primary care physicians in sharing their medical practice models and to create a primary care voice for  legislatures and leaders in healthcare reform to hear.

Dr. Fathie’s practice is based primarily in the office at this time, however, for the first four years her practice was a house-call practice where she visited very ill homebound patients within their homes with her mobile office. She became proficient at coordinating care and services to serve the most difficult and complicated patients.  While she spends most of her time in her office, she has maintained current privileges at some of the local hospitals and nursing homes.  She will do a courtesy visit to the hospitals, but, prefers to manage patients so that they stay out of the hospital.  She has added Telemedicine visits to her practice as of 2020. She is an advocate for excellent geriatric care and works with families to preserve the dignity of their loved ones.

Dr. Fathie has two children to keep her busy at home. She spends most of her free time with her children and family.

Over the years, Dr. Fathie’s interest in helping the underserved has lead her to do volunteer work in parts of Africa, Mexico, India, and Iran. But, her work has yet to begin. Her greatest desire is to someday, somehow, provide health care services to the underserved people of this world on a massive scale.
