Dr. Motamedi is originally from Iran. She obtained her medical degree in Turkey in 1990 and returned to Iran to work as a rural general practitioner for five years.Those early years as a physician made a big impact in how she views her role as a doctor by being able to provide care to families and individuals who lack access to proper health care and treatment facilities. Dr. Motamedi obtained a board certificate in Infectious Diseases in 1999 from Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Iran.This qualification allowed her to broaden her experience including working with the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as management of national HIV/AIDS control program in Center for Disease Control (CDC) Iran for six years. Dr. Motamedi immigrated to Canada in 2010. She worked as a Clinical Research Coordinator at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and volunteered at the Vancouver Native Health Society. Since completing the UBC Family Medicine Residency program in 2017, she has been working as an independent family physician. She is currently advocating for improvement of mental health and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) care in BC.

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.

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 continues to work tirelessly to improve mental health and ADHD care in the province of BC.
