AMIRA AL-BASHA, PA-C
Amira received a business degree from UIUC followed by her Physician Assistant Masters at Dominican University near Chicago. She has worked at Edgebrook Dermatology for the last 3 years as a PA, but for several years before that as a medical assistant and laser technician in our office. Not only does she perform medical and cosmetic treatments and care, but she has tried many of them herself. She has received regular Botox since the age of 24, lip filler, hair reduction, and the occasional IPL. She states, “While all our treatments are amazing, I like Botox and Liquid Nitrogen treatments the best. The former makes people feel so confident and look relaxed while the latter fixes a whole host of medical and cosmetic issues before they become bigger problems.”
Amira has 2 children currently and one on the way in July! Her family lives on a farm, so they have many animals including horses, donkeys, sheep, peacocks, chickens, dogs & cats. Being outdoorsy by nature, her family likes to spend time on the farm hosting barbecues almost every weekend in the summer and going on many hikes with the kids and dogs.
“I think we genuinely make a stark difference in the entire northern Illinois/southern Wisconsin area,” Amira says. “We bring a hometown/family doctor feel in a time when medicine sometimes feels cold and corporate. I have always loved the idea of building a family legacy and enjoy working with my mother daily. We are here for you--when I say it is like family, it truly is. We will come in early, stay late, work through lunch, or whatever else you need to make sure you get the care you need.”
We are so proud and thankful to have Amira Al-Basha, PA-C, on our team!
