Hamid Razavi, PH.D

Hamid Razavi is an Iranian-American who moved to the United States in 1979 to pursue his education, earning a PhD in political science. He is highly involved in the local community and is a major advocate for human rights and socio-economic justice.

Razavi has worked and volunteered in numerous organizations. After graduation, his first job was at a center serving the mentally challenged as he believed strongly in their goals and mission. He also worked for the City of Houston’s Affirmative Action Division in the Mayor’s office and the city’s Department of Housing and Community Development.

Since 1994, Razavi has been the president of Paragon Medical Management, providing administrative and consulting services to healthcare facilities as well as his philanthropic work locally and nationally.

Life Mission

Hamid Razavi’s interest in minority and underprivileged health care equity has become a life mission. In 1994 after studying different communities in Houston, he came up with developing a “medical home” concept in the Gulfton area of Houston. His dream was to create a medical facility that felt like a second home to immigrants and the medically underserved in the area.

Hamid Razavi presented the idea to other health care entities and, with the support and backing of those visionaries, developed a medical center at 6400 Hillcroft with the hopes of making it the medical home for the multi-cultural and multi-lingual people in the Gulfton area. Gulfton is also known as the “Ellis Island of Houston,” one of Houston’s most densely populated areas with medically underserved patients. He is now one of the pioneers of a medical home called Hillcroft Physicians P.A. clinic, a one-stop medical facility providing comprehensive primary care for children and adults.

“This is a neighborhood of hard-working people who have come here for a better life,” says Razavi. “It’s a thriving population that has a tremendous appreciation for what they have and what our country offers. But they sometimes don’t have the means to care for health problems, and it’s not just a financial issue. It’s culture, language… a range of obstacles. Our patients speak many different languages and come from different cultures. That’s where we can help. We provide the services they need all in one place, from pediatricians to elder care, X-rays, and a pharmacy. It’s easy to access and convenient.”

Hamid Razavi has managed the business aspects of the Hillcroft Physicians Clinic. The medical center he has envisioned and helped develop is a comprehensive primary care facility that caters to a diverse population of Houston. He has established and works as the CEO of Paragon Medical Management since 1994 and continues his philanthropic and community activities.

Over two decades, the Hillcroft clinic staff have provided care for hundreds of thousands of patients with excellent results and received the accolades and acknowledgment of other healthcare management operations. Paragon Medical Management, founded by Hamid Razavi, continues to provide services to the medical home that is Hillcroft Physicians P.A. clinic.
