Basma S. Faris, MD, CCMS

OBGYN, Culinary Medicine Specialist, PCOS Expert


Specialty(ies): Culinary Medicine | Lifestyle Medicine | Obstetrics/Gynecology | Physician Profile

I am a NYC based board certified OB/GYN and Certified Culinary Medicine Specialist. I started my healthcare career as a Registered Dietitian and transitioned to Medicine, hence my handle. As a Culinary Medicine Specialist one goal is to use my 20 years of experience to help other physicians incorporate Nutrition into their medical practice in a way that is efficient and evidence based.

In late 2022 I started PollyPrep which is a company focused on caring for people with PCOS using nutrition, medicine and education. PCOS is a chronic medical condition that goes beyond irregular periods and infertility and people with PCOS deserve comprehensive care. I provide medical services via telemedicine and education via free and paid materials.
