Biography
As a general pediatrician, Dr. Alavian cares for children from newborn to 22 years of age. She thoroughly enjoys well visits of all ages, especially discussing with families what they can do to assist in their child's development at particular ages and stages and how they can help their child reach their potential and identify their interests and talents. When seeing children for sick visits, Dr. Alavian values educating families about their child’s illness and empowering them to administer home care.

She speaks Spanish and enjoys working with Spanish-speaking families. She is also committed to serving minority populations and those living in rural settings. Dr. Alavian values listening to parental concerns because she believes parents know their child best. She also involves and empowers children to advocate for their own care as they grow.

When not at work, Dr. Alavian loves spending time outside with her husband, riding her horse, or playing with her cat. She also does volunteer work in Raleigh and other parts of eastern North Carolina supporting youth spiritual empowerment and community-building efforts.
