Phinney Primary Care and Wellness was formed in 2003 because I was looking to provide high quality patient centered primary care in a supportive environment. This meant spending time with patients in an unhurried atmosphere and harnessing technology to deliver care while maintaining the humanity of the doctor patient experience. Originally formed as Fremont Family Practice we moved to our brand new office in the Phinney neighborhood in 2020 and changed our name to Phinney Primary Care and Wellness. I feel fortunate to work with amazing colleagues and staff. I’m also happy to have my wife (Dr Mahvash Khajavi-Harvey) and her dental practice that recently moved next door (Urban Dental Group) again as a neighbor and partner. In addition to the practice of medicine, I love to spend time outdoors especially on or near the water. I find my peace working with wood, spending time with my wife and 3 children (Zack, Parisa & Sheyda), traveling, playing guitar, and throwing the disc.
