Mina Baratifar, PA-C


Mina Baratifar’s interest in neurology began through the field of speech pathology.

Mina began her clinic days working with patients with a wide variety of neurogenic communication disorders including stroke, TBI, MS, Parkinson’s etc. It is through these patient experiences that she gained not only an interest in neurology, but also a deep appreciation for the impact a neurological diagnosis can have on a patient and his or her family.  After working as a speech-pathologist for four years, she decided to further my education and completed a Masters in Physician Assistant Studies in 2019.

Mina’s goal in healthcare is to be a true patient advocate. She hopes to equip each patient with an understanding of their diagnosis and support them throughout their course of care.

Mina enjoys spending time with family and friends, trying new recipes, and spending time outdoors, especially at the Dallas Arboretum when the weather is nice. She recently welcomed a sweet baby boy March of 2020!
