About her Practice
Dr. Motamedi holds a Certificate with the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CCFP) and is a member of the College of Family Physicians and Surgeons of BC and Alberta. She is passionate about medicine and regularly attends educational opportunities to keep herself up-to-date with the latest research and best practices. She believes in an evidence based, yet holistic approach in medicine. She serves as a clinical instructor teaching medical students at UBC, whenever available.
Dr. Motamedi has an interest in mental health problems, and ADHD in particular. Other areas of interest include dermatology, complex care; e.g Diabetes, High blood pressure, COPD, and heart diseases. Since the start of the global COVID pandemic, most of her virtual patients are people with mental health problems. As a result of this, she has gained even a deeper understanding and interest in this area of medicine.
Mental health problems are increasing worldwide, and this is proving to be an area where more resources are needed. Dr. Motamedi’s medical experience and interest has evolved to include patients with ADHD. Currently there is a significant shortage in the number of practitioners who feel confident enough to treat mental health problems. Dr. Motamedi believes helping every patient with mental health problems and/or ADHD, benefits the patient’s whole family and the community at large. She is currently an active member of the Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance (CADDRA) advocacy committee and continues to work tirelessly to improve mental health and ADHD care in the province of BC.
