Clinical Expertise

(Appointments require an internal referral)
I diagnose and treat memory disorders, including:
Early onset Alzheimer's
Frontotemporal dementia
Primary progressive aphasia
Cortico-basal degeneration
Parkinson's dementia
Lewy-body dementia
Progressive supranuclear palsy
Multiple system atrophy
Any other symptoms of disturbance in memory and/or thinking which may be progressive in nature
I use various brain imaging techniques including MRI, PET, DaT.
I also may order lumbar punctures for testing of the CSF or order genetic testing, although these are not commonly needed.
My practice includes a team to help with neuropsychological testing, social work interventions, medications for mood, memory, behavior and sleep.

Philosophy of Care

I enjoy working with patients concerned or suffering with memory or cognitive issues because once empowered with an understanding of what may be happening, you can move forward with your life and live more vibrantly.
Perhaps the hardest part of the evaluation process is the uncertainty and sometimes the long path to receiving information. I partner with you to sit with you and understand your unique situation and provide not only a medical explanation but a human one so you can make your own decisions regarding your future fully informed of your options.
I engage the entire family where appropriate and work hard to seek a common understanding across all caregivers and loved ones. I will walk you through how I come to my understanding so that it first makes sense to you. This means I will show you what I see on your brain imaging or other testing, empowering you with the knowledge of your own body.

Personal Information

I chose medicine as a career after first building my skills in engineering and science. I experienced Hodgkin's Disease myself as an adult and it was my experience with the healthcare system and my appreciation for the second chance it gave me which ignited my interest in medicine.
After many more years of training I combine engineering and medicine to provide my clinical expertise directly to patients and work on technology which will serve the very same patients I see in clinic.
I am very dedicated to my community and enjoy hosting weekly dinners, participating in forestry work in my neighborhood frequently, maintaining a large a flower and vegetable garden, and avidly pursuing running, biking, hiking, rock climbing and tennis. I have volunteered consistently since childhood and feel strongly in building community through service.

Community Involvement

I recently completed a two year term on the King County Behavioral Health Board, which worked to guide the priorities and budget for the county pertaining to mental health and substance use treatment.
I currently am very active with Seattle City Parks and volunteer daily or weekly to restore native plant habitat in city parks.

Dr. Ghomi scared the patient by saying "you need to change your attitude or you might get locked up." (Patient is still terrified.)
