Dr Maryam Zeineddin
Dr. Maryam Zeineddin was born in Tehran, Iran and lived in Athens, London and Stockholm prior to moving to Vancouver. She attended UBC and completed her B.Sc. in honours physiology. Her passion for medicine led to volunteering in Honduras with the Canadian Development Agency at a children's hospital. This experience became one of the deciding factors for Dr. Zeineddin to become a physician. During her medical school years at UBC, she took advantage of travelling, volunteering and playing intramural sports such as ice hockey.
Dr. Zeineddin completed two years of family practice residency at the St. Paul's UBC program, and started her family practice the day after the completion of her residency program. Together with her friend and classmate Dr. Nicole Barre, she built and currently manages Ambleside Medical Centre (AMC) with fantastic doctors and staff. Their mission at AMC is to provide the most comprehensive patient-centered care, with preventative health measures as the key element of healthy living. Dr. Zeineddin has a full practice with interest in all facets of family practice, including preventative health and lifestyle counseling. She is an avid teacher and clinical instructor for UBC family practice residency programs, has been faculty for the UBC Coastal program, and continues to present and teach to medical students and residents of UBC.
She is in love and married to a local West Vancouver dentist and, together with their two children, they enjoy skiing, biking, playing tennis and socializing with friends and family. Dr Zeineddin’s new obsession is road biking and improving her Gran Fondo time, and enjoying every moment of doubles tennis. Her new formula for healthy living is to exercise in the early mornings, then journal her gratitude with a nice cup of coffee before her children get up. Her goal is to become more “zen and mindful,” and savour life's moments.
