Dr. Javaria Jabeen says life is short and there’s not a moment to waste. She believes, as well as lives, every word of that sentiment. Dr. Jabeen was 15 when she moved to the United States. She graduated high school in New Jersey and entered college to become a primary care family physician.
She chose to pursue certification as a DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) rather than an MD (Doctor of Allopathic Medicine).
“Becoming a DO meant approximately 200 hours of additional study,” Dr. Jabeen explained. “A DO focuses on the entire person – mind, body, and spirit – to prevent injury or illness in the first place, rather than simply treat the symptoms after the problem occurs. That’s what I wanted as my focus, and it’s also why I evaluate a patient from head-to-toe. I want to treat everything, and not rely so heavily on a prescription pad.
“Family is very important to me, which is why I wanted to be a family doctor.” Dr. Jabeen decided early on to establish her own practice rather than work for someone else.
“I want to be the one to determine how much time I devote to my patients,” she said. “I was less than 30 years old and pregnant with my twins when I opened my medical practice in Flower Mound. I almost panicked. How could I do it with a big belly and walking like a penguin? The answer, I learned, was having a great staff.”
She did it and, a few years later, the next ripple surfaced. “I began a full line of aesthetic services six years ago. Today, that part of the YZ Healthcare practice is rebranded as RIA Aesthetics. We treat and improve the physical appearance of the body, but we also address overall wellness with, for example, our IV drip therapies for immune health, energy, depression, anxiety, cognitive function, and more.”
The most successful of Dr. Jabeen’s career circles bobbed up in 2016, when she became the Medical Director for Renew Medical Weight Loss.
Dr. Jabeen’s frequent expansion into new challenges pushed her 2,000 square foot practice space beyond its limits. She’s now scheduled for a September relocation to the former Cloud 9 Salon, with 8,500 square feet.
Dr. Jabeen is only 36 years old, with a 9-year-old future marine biologist daughter and 5-year-old identical twin sons. There is also frequent family travel, with the international travel line on her phone always keeping her within her patients’ reach.
