About Dr. Shafai
Since her childhood, Dr. Mandana Shafai always knew she wanted to pursue a career that connected her to people. And as an internal medicine doctor at PartnerMD, that is exactly what she strives to do with all her patients.
“I want my patients to know they have someone who listens to them,” she says. “I want them to know that I am their ally on their path to lifelong health.”
Dr. Shafai combines functional medicine, holistic medicine, and traditional medicine to deliver the customized care her patients need.
With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Shafai has helped patients with a wide range of issues, including weight loss, diet, stress/anxiety, and sleep. She frequently helps women navigate perimenopause and post-menopause, and her functional medicine expertise includes things like hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, leaky gut, toxin exposure, bioidentical hormones, thyroid disorders, and chronic fatigue.
“Getting to the root cause is so important, and it takes time,” she says. “I don’t want to just treat your symptoms. I want to find the root cause and help you fix it so you can live a healthier life.”
Dr. Shafai has been recognized as one of the Top Doctors in NOVA by Northern Virginia magazine.
