Q&A With Dr. Horriat

ACPS stood out very clearly to me. I interviewed all over the country at many well-known programs and none came close to the amount of operative volume and diversity as ACPS. From the moment I arrived, I was welcomed by all the surgeons and staff. I was impressed by the efficiency, attention to detail and dedication to excellent patient care.

From as early as my premedical studies I knew I wanted to be in a surgical specialty. I was exposed to plastic surgery by chance late in my third year of medical school and was so impressed by the scope and artistic nature of the practice that I abruptly switched my application to apply for plastic surgery residency’s and it was the best decision I ever made in my life!

I want to be the best. I never stop striving for excellence, no matter how much effort or how long it takes. The reason this is important to me is because I know it makes a difference in the lives of my patients; they are trusting me with their bodies. That is what I love most about being a surgeon—the opportunity to connect with people in their most vulnerable moments and give them reassurance that I will be walking alongside them through the whole process. I love educating my patients about their anatomy and the specific procedures they are seeking. That being said, each patient teaches me something in return by sharing their journey with me— and THAT is what I truly cherish.

I spend most of my free time doing some form of physical activity. I love lifting weights, circuit training, running, and power yoga. Aside from fitness and nutrition, my other interests and hobbies include painting, creative writing, singing in church, enjoying nature, traveling, exploring new cities and restaurants, and just spending quality time with family and friends.

I am Persian and speak Farsi fluently. I am first generation born in the U.S. and the first in my family to become a physician. My parents moved to the United States away from their country, their families, and their home when they were teenagers to pursue their education; so dedication to ongoing learning was of utmost importance in our family.

“Strive for excellence, not perfection.” – My Dad

He taught me this from a very young age and reminded me of it on into adulthood. Strive for excellence, because you will never be perfect, no one is. You will fail, but your failures teach you something new every time. You keep going, resiliently continuing to strive for excellence, always getting better, and ultimately becoming the best.
