“I founded HERmd to empower women, to advocate for them, to close the gender gap in healthcare.”

 

 

SOMI JAVAID, MD

BOARD CERTIFIED OBGYN
SEXUAL HEALTH SPECIALIST

Dr. Javaid’s patients – women from all walks of life, seeking her expertise in sexual health – inspired her to open her first HERmd location five years ago.  Her vision was to create a place where all women would have access to experts in the field of women’s healthcare within an insurance-based model. 

After operating her first HERmd location for four years and being recognized as one of Candela’s National Centers of Gynecologic Excellence, founder Dr. Somi Javaid saw the opportunity to grow HERmd into a preeminent, female-forward wellness brand.

“Women’s sexual health has long been ignored, and there has been a real lack of information and treatment options – until now. I started HERmd to empower women to take control of their sexual health.”

Dr. Javaid is a pioneer in menopause and sexual medicine. She travels across the country training other physicians on the newest innovations and treatments, serving as a Key Opinion Leader for multiple healthcare companies and speaking on the importance of women’s sexual health. Dr. Javaid is currently leading multiple clinical research trials for women’s sexual health. In addition to her groundbreaking research, she has developed algorithms of care based on her years of experience.
