I was born in Iran and due to my father’s diplomatic career, and we moved every four years. I have lived in many countries, including Iran, Lebanon, Spain, Mexico, and Italy. Since 1979, I have resided in the United States.

I have been practicing adult primary care medicine since 1992.

I joined the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group at the end of July 2009.  I believe it is a smarter way to practice medicine and am most comfortable in a not-for-profit setting.  I worked on Capitol Hill for 14 years and saw many of my colleagues go into boutique practices or stop taking insurance altogether.

What My Patients Say

Dr. Panahy is always very approachable. She responds to emails within 24 hours. I would rate her as a provider of excellent care in a timely and caring way. - EM

Dr. Panahy is the best. She is always there to answer my questions. I can tell she really cares about her job. - TB

Dr. Panahy always offers me good care and sound, practical advice; she takes enough time to explain and makes me feel comfortable. When I need a specialist, she evaluates the situation and acts accordingly. - DR

I consider myself very fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Panahy's. She is VERY responsive to emails, caring, concerned during office visits, and follows up on Rx's, referrals, etc. Also, she has a very pleasant 'bedside' manner which is just as important as her thorough medical knowledge. - JAS
