Camellia Shirazi M.D. has a unique background combining anesthesiology and psychiatry to bring greater insight to the cause and effect of mental health problems particularly in the context of physical pain. Dr. Shirazi began her medical career in anesthesiology where she focused on the physiology and biochemistry of the body. Her interests quickly evolved into the chemistry of the brain and how mood affects body function. Ultimately, she found her calling in psychiatry. She is a pioneer in this field and was one of the founders of the practice that is now Wellward.
