Dr. Razi received his graduate training at the Ross University Medical School, with his graduate-level residency in anesthesiology at the famous Beth Israel-Deaconess hospitals affiliated with Harvard. He is double board-eligible in both Anesthesia and Pain Management.
Dr. Razi explains that it was about halfway through his anesthesia residency that he became interested in working with “awake people” as opposed to anesthetized patients undergoing surgery, and especially with patients experiencing chronic pain difficulties. Within his understanding of the biopsychosocial functional restoration paradigm for treating such people.
Dr. Razi has additional training and certification in opioid detoxification. He expects to be working closely with Dr. Jasmine Silva and the Footsteps program in the Walnut Creek site to increase referrals that would benefit patients who need to decrease or discontinue the use of narcotic medications for chronic pain. Dr. Razi has two locations. One in Fairfield and another conveniently located in San Leandro, two blocks from the freeway and near the local Kaiser-Permanente medical facility.
