TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 29, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Maryam Nazemzadeh, MD, has been recognized as a 2023 Castle Connolly Top Doctor — the first time she has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor. Only about 7 percent of the nation’s licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.

Known as “Dr. Naz,” Dr. Nazemzadeh is a highly regarded oculofacial plastic surgeon and ophthalmologist. She has extensive training and special expertise in performing facial cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgeries of the eyelid, eyebrow, orbit, and lacrimal system.

She is also a skilled cosmetic injector who offers a wide range of injectable products and services.

Board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and certified by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS)/Oculofacial Society, Dr. Nazemzadeh sees patients at The Naz Experience, the well-appointed D.C.-area practice that she founded and owns.

Unique in that she is one of a few surgeons worldwide who is trained in both pediatric and adult oculofacial plastic surgery and who can handle complex trauma cases, reconstructive cases, and cosmetic cases, Dr. Nazemzadeh cares for patients of all ages.

She evaluates and treats a wide range of oculofacial conditions, injuries, and concerns — from sagging eyelids, brow ptosis, under-eye bags, and cosmetic issues to oculofacial trauma, cancer, congenital defects, and lacrimal gland problems such as blocked tear ducts.

“I don’t offer my patients gimmicks or trends,” she says. “What I do offer is years of rigorous training, precision, genuine care, an artistic eye, and natural results.”

She speaks Spanish, Farsi, and English.

Dr. Nazemzadeh earned her medical degree at George Washington University School of Medicine. She completed an ophthalmology residency at George Washington University School of Medicine Affiliated Hospitals.

She completed a two-year ASOPRS/Oculofacial Society fellowship in orbital and oculofacial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery at The University of Pennsylvania and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.

“I’m so thrilled to be selected for this prestigious award, especially because the most elite doctors in America recognized me for my craftsmanship and results,” Dr. Nazemzadeh says.
