Dr. Nika Ferdowsi is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician with several years of experience practicing in South Florida and has recently moved to Nashville to be closer to family. She grew up in Nashville and had moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida for her undergraduate and medical school training. She graduated medical school from Nova Southeastern University with honors at the top of her class and completed her residency in Family Medicine at Westchester General Hospital in Miami, Florida. Her passion to help others achieve optimal health led her to seek additional training in Integrative Medicine.
After residency Dr. Ferdowsi completed a two year academic fellowship in Integrative Medicine at University of Arizona. There she learned about evidence based approaches to achieving optimal health with her patients through positive lifestyle changes including diet, exercise, stress reduction, spirituality and the connection of healthy choices to what is meaningful in people's lives.

Dr. Ferdowsi is passionate about health, and is a lifelong student of fitness and nutrition and enjoys working with patients to help them feel their best and achieve their health goals.
