Dr. Glareh Imani
Dr. Imani is a board-certified emergency medicine physician. She received her undergraduate degree in neuroscience from the University of Texas at Dallas, where she graduated magna cum laude. She received her medical degree from Midwestern Osteopathic School right here in Glendale, Arizona, where she again graduated with honors.
After medical school, she completed the residency program at the University of Florida College of Medicine, where she received her training in Emergency Medicine, and was awarded the "best resident teacher".
Besides her work at Nameen Infusion & Wellness, Dr. Imani continues practicing emergency medicine in hospitals around the valley. She has served the community in many emergency departments across the valley, including St. Joseph’s Medical Center, Westgate, Scottsdale Abrazo where she served as the associate director of Emergency, and Abrazo West, where she served as the assistant director of the Emergency medicine residency program.
Dr. Imani’s education in Neuroscience sparked her interest in neuron synapses and how, with the use of ketamine, these synapses can be accessed to help patients suffering from depression, chronic pain, addiction, or physical pain. After seeing and treating patients in the emergency department in this way, Dr. Imani became interested in understanding and furthering the use of ketamine as an effective treatment. As an emergency physician using ketamine as a treatment for pain and as an anesthetic, and emotional ailments, she is particularly qualified in providing carefully-controlled infusion treatments.
Being a doctor of osteopathic medicine, Dr. Imani considers a holistic approach to care. Each patient presents a unique combination of mind, body, and spirit; requiring an in-depth understanding of the specific circumstances that lead him or her to seek specific treatments. She will additionally work with a patient’s current primary care and/or mental health providers to help her in mapping the most ideal treatment plans.
Among her other professional interests includes teaching, which she has done since early-on in her career. She remains involved with training hundreds of medical professionals in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), as well as taking on roles in teaching residents and medical students in the emergency department.
Besides teaching, she is also passionate about disaster medicine, tactical medicine, wilderness medicine, and community outreach. She has been a member of multiple mission trips to South America to provide necessary medical services to those who wouldn’t otherwise have access to basic wellbeing care and primary care treatments. When she is not working, she loves working out, staying fit, traveling, learning new things, and spending time with her husband and two children.
