PA Zarnegar has a wide range of experience including general surgery & emergency medicine, urgent care, and family practice, both in hospital and outpatient settings – but her true passion is aesthetic medicine.

Her commitment to learn, investigate, and perform evolving treatments and techniques is the driving force behind her success. She is uniquely talented and her training expertise makes her particularly adept in using neuromodulators and dermal fillers in new and innovative ways. She is also an advanced aesthetic laser expert and is trained to use several laser applications for skin resurfacing, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and tattoos. PA Zarnegar has additionally spent years perfecting the craft of body sculpting and is a Master CoolSculpting Specialist. She is passionate about giving the best results for her patients by incorporating a healthy lifestyle with the best methods and techniques with CoolSculpting.
