Dr. Payam Hakimi

D.O., A.B.F.P.

A Board Certified Family Physician, Dr. Payam Hakimi has had diverse medical training and has combined his knowledge of medicine with specialized alternative medical modalities to create an integrative and comprehensive medical practice. He is currently the medical director of Body of Harmony in Beverly Hills, CA.

Coming from a lineage of physicians, pharmacists, and natural therapists, and fascinated by the complexity of the human physiology Dr. Hakimi chose to attend medical school. His favorite hobby during this time was to read about other philosophies regarding the existence of human being. By the time he received his Doctor of Osteopathy degree he had also gained knowledge in Psychology, Nutrition, Supplements, Martial Arts, and Energy Medicine. He has applied his knowledge towards self improvement group meetings for many years, which led him to have his own television programs at 3 different stations.

While finishing his residency at USC with the Department of Family Medicine, he was elected Chief Resident and Assistant Clinical Professor at the USC Keck School of Medicine. “To learn something thoroughly you need to be able to teach it perfectly” Dr. Hakimi says. He is a key instructor for teaching medical students, residents, physicians, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and the public, the art and science of integrative medicine.

Dr. Hakimi is one of the few DOs who practice & teach Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy. He is known as “The Best Osteopath in Town”. The age range that Osteopathy treats expands from a new born to a 100 year old patient. For certain patients he combines Bone Marrow Aspirate and Stem Cell Therapy, which may help with rebuilding some of the lost supporting structures.
