Fasih A. Hameed, MD, ABIHM
Director of Integrative Services, Petaluma Health Center, Petaluma, CA
Assistant Clinical Professor, UCSF- Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency
Fasih was born and raised in New Jersey, but always knew he was headed West. After completing medical school in New Orleans, Fasih followed his heart to Santa Rosa, where he helped create the Integrative Medicine Fellowship program. He then stayed on as the first IM4U fellow, where he focused on acupuncture, herbal and nutritional medicine, osteopathic manipulation, and mindfulness-based stress reduction. Keeping with the mission of the Fellowship, upon graduation, Fasih was recruited to the Petaluma Health Center, a local FQHC, to create new programs in Integrative Medicine and Wellness for their underserved population. He has since established a new acupuncture clinic, group acupuncture clinic, Integrative Medicine consultation clinic, integrative chronic pain group, planted a demonstration garden and is engaged in the process of designing a new Petaluma community wellness center. True to the Integrative model, he also has a full-scope family practice, including inpatient obstetrics and medicine. Fasih still enjoys teaching at the residency, on occasion, and is active within the national movement of Integrative Medicine for the Underserved.
