“I have always had an interest in serving others and being involved in my community,” says Dr. Barzin. “As a physician, I have the opportunity to work with families and their loved ones to improve their well being, provide support and be an advocate for them. I approach every patient interaction with the fundamentals of my osteopathic training in mind, and look at how the mind, body, and soul impact one’s health. Outside of work, I can frequently be found running around the streets of Chapel Hill and enjoying UNC athletics. My wife and I enjoy traveling, trying new food and spending time with our two children.”
Barzin completed medical school at University of North Texas Health Science Center and then completed his residency in Family Medicine at UNC Family Medicine. After doing a Chief Resident Fellowship, he remained with the department. He has served in various leadership roles within the department including the Family Medicine Inpatient Service Line Director, Medical Director of The Family Medicine Center at Chapel Hill, and the UNC Urgent Care at The Family Medicine Center at Chapel Hill. He currently serves as the Medical Director for UNC Health Virtual Care Services and the UNC Health Clinical Contact Center.
