Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, Pharmacist
Neema has been exposed to medicine from a very young age after his older sister was diagnosed with Stage III Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma during his childhood. Through the course of her therapy, he grew close to the pharmacists in her care and put full faith in the medications that could potentially save her life and ease her pain. After an up-hill battle, his sister finally began to shows signs of improvement and eventually, was completely healed. Neema has been captivated by the power of medicine ever since. Inspired by the caring pharmacists he met and always having a passion for science, Neema decided to devote his life to healing others as a pharmacist.
After earning a B.S. in Biology from the University of California Riverside, Neema earned his Doctorate of Pharmacy from Midwestern University – Chicago College of Pharmacy. Although having worked in many different pharmacy settings, he has the most passion and experience in pharmaceutical compounding. He believes that “sometimes, a one-size-fits-all approach may not work for many patients. In these cases, customized compounded preparations could be highly beneficial.”
Neema now has over six years of compounding experience and his passion for it continues to grow. From creating medications from scratch to counseling patients and educating doctors, he takes pride in his work and abilities. He has been noted for his high level of expertise in a variety of compounding specialties such as Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy, Pain Management, Dermatology, Podiatry, and Veterinary , to name a few. He is an active member of the American Pharmacists Association, International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists and California Pharmacists Association. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, playing basketball and soccer, biking near the beach and cooking healthy meals. Combining his past experiences, pharmacy education and great level of patient care, Neema has high hopes to help all his patients at American Integrative Pharmacy live in their optimal health.
