About me

Dr. Nasim Sobhani is a perinatologist, an obstetrician who specializes in care during high-risk pregnancies. She provides comprehensive care for women with preexisting conditions that can affect pregnancy and for women with pregnancy-specific health conditions. She also cares for developing fetuses when genetic or structural conditions have been diagnosed in utero. She sees patients in both the hospital and the clinic.

Sobhani's research seeks a better understanding of certain pregnancy complications caused by problems with the placenta. Specifically, she studies preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction and gestational diabetes, among other complications.

Sobhani earned her medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. She completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Washington, followed by a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at UCSF.
