Soheila Adelipour

Soheila Adelipour and her family, being Jewish, escaped the volatile situation in Iran in 1979 after the Islamic revolution and settled in New York. She received her bachelor's degree in Business and her master's degree in Art Gallery Management while her first two kids were in diapers. Life was normal with her 4 kids until tragedy plagued her family.  She lost her second son in Boston in a tragic fire accident, then, a few years later, both her sister and brother passed away after enduring long and horrific illnesses. Soheila was there every step of the way during those tough and difficult times, (she was 100% match with her young brother, she gave him her bone marrow and then 60% of her liver hoping to save him). Soheila has established, Stefan Adelipour For Life Foundation in memory of her young son. She organizes fundraising every year and helps people in need, regardless of race, color or religion.  At the moment Soheila's main purpose is to give courage and strength to people with her words and experiences.

SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS                                     

Board Certified Licensed Pediatrician with more than five years of outpatient experience at a federally qualified community health center where I see 20-28 primarily Medicaid patients per day, ranging from well visits (newborns to 18 years) to acute visits including respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms, ADHD, injuries, rashes, etc. I fully enjoy pediatrics and have currently been serving as senior pediatrician in my clinic since December 2016. In addition to visits, I respond to telephone encounters, review labs and review paperwork for prior authorizations, referrals and consult notes. Though I continue to further my proficiency, I am able to conduct most well and acute visits in Spanish. I’ve worked with eClinical Works, Epic, Cerner and Allscripts.

I also enjoy speaking to and educating the community. I am scheduled to speak on financial literacy to pediatric residents in October 2019. My passion is to empower working moms by addressing guilt from being away from their child. By acknowledging this pain, I increase the morale of working moms and consequently their productivity increases.
