Meet Dr. Gelareh Naenifard

Dr. Gela headshotFairmount Heights Chiropractor Dr. Gelareh Naenifard is the clinical director of Pain and Rehab Center, which she founded in 2017. She has successfully helped thousands of patients find solutions for symptoms arising from car accident injuries like whiplash, other physical trauma, neck pain, back pain, headaches, and work-related injuries.

Dr. Gela did her undergraduate work at Charleston Southern University, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Biology. While in a Master’s program, a cardiologist friend suggested she look into chiropractic as a career.

At the time, she had never heard of chiropractic, so she decided to learn more about it. In 2004, she shadowed a few doctors and decided to change direction. She was accepted to Life University College of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia and received her Doctor of Chiropractic in December 2008.

After trying other specialties, she realized that she really enjoys treating personal injury cases. She made that her specialty and continues to provide her patients with exceptional care.
