Dr. Aziz Pirani, MD

Dr. Aziz Pirani was born and raised in Indore, India and obtained his medical degree there in 1989. He was initially a practicing pediatrician, but changed his specialty to family medicine when he came to the U.S. in order to widen the age range of people he could serve.  After completing his residency at Atlanta Medical Center in 2007, Aziz was the Medical Director of Four Corners Primary Care, a federally qualified health center. That role inspired his passion to serve his community and the underprivileged. By 2012, Aziz and his wife, Dr. Safia Pirani, opened up their own practice in Lilburn, the first Lifeline Primary Care location. Two years later, they added clinics in Norcross and in Clarkston, a refugee community filled with patients from war-stricken areas of the world. In September 2015, Aziz and Safia opened the fourth location of Lifeline Primary Care, this time, in Duluth.

Dr. Safia Pirani, MD

Dr. Safia Pirani was born and raised in Pakistan and obtained her medical degree there in 1988. In 1991, while she was doing her pediatric residency, she married Dr. Aziz Pirani and joined his pediatric practice in India before working in NICU. Safia later changed her specialty to family medicine when she came to the U.S. and completed her residency at Atlanta Medical Center in 2005. For almost seven years, she was affiliated with Georgia Highland Medical Services, a federally qualified health center, and spent the last few years there as Assistant Medical Director and Medical Director. In 2015, Safia joined her husband at Lifeline Primary Care as he ventured to expand his practice from one location in 2012 to four by September 2015. She is now the Medical Director at Lifeline Primary Care and supervises all the clinical staff.
