Program Speaker

Paris Kharbat, DO, ABFM, ABOIM, IFMCP

Dr. Kharbat attended the University of North Texas Health Sciences - Texas College of Osteopathic medicine and completed her Family Medicine residency through Mercy Methodist - UC Davis. After residency she joined Indian Health Services (IHS) where she worked in the clinic, hospital, nursing home and assumed the medical director role serving a large Native American population. While working with IHS she quickly realized her patient base had many medical needs that were not adequately met through traditional family medicine. She completed the UCLA/Stanford Helms Medical Institute acupuncture training and provided medical acupuncture to patients in subsequent years.

After 3 years at IHS, Dr. Kharbat started her solo practice bridging the gap between Eastern and Western medicine as the only Integrative physician in the region. During the 11 years of private practice in Washington state, Dr. Kharbat took on extensive additional training in functional medicine, osteopathic manipulation - fascial distortion model and frequency specific microcurrent

In 2016 she joined Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine which enabled her to see chronic complex conditions from around the world, contribute to the first functional medicine randomized clinical trials for diabetes and asthma, lead the creation of shared medical appointments and provide functional medicine training for advanced practice providers, residents and medical students.

Currently, Dr. Kharbat is the founder of Simply Functional Medicine, Inc. offering virtual personalized Functional medicine in all 50 states. She has also partnered with 98point6 providing affordable, accessible telemedicine/text based care. To round out her telemedicine care she still picks up local urgent care shifts and is medical director of a local plasma center.
