Dr. Yousofi, DCLina Yousofi D.C.Chiropractor

Changing a major profession from being a Registered Nurse to a chiropractor was an immense and great decision for me. It was incredibly challenging to be working in a hospital that had a huge number of patients seen daily.

I had also worked in a surgery room where I have seen severe medical cases and this long ongoing daily scenario prompted me to be an evangelist helping patients in a natural way so in 1992, I decided to enter and study in the field of chiropractic health care. I graduated from Life Chiropractic College West in 1998, and I have been practicing since then.

At this time, I became deeply passionate about my chosen profession and at the same time was enamored of the San Francisco Bay Area, so I opened my first clinic in 2003 at Hayward. Not surprisingly, the clinic achieved instant success as well as a tremendous retinue of patients, admirers and professional interests that inspired me to open my second offices in 2004 in Tracy CA.

"Our goal is to not only alleviate pain, but more importantly, inspire and educate our patients to become active participants in their own well-being. Our approach is non-surgical, whereby we treat the entire person, not just their symptoms. Through this comprehensive and structured approach, we are better able to help our patients achieve optimal levels of health and wellness."

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

- Thomas Edison

AnnaAnna DeoMedical Assistant

I am a passionate person and love to see people around in good physical and mental health.

I moved to US Vermont from Russia in 2008 where I completed my Nurse Assistant and Medical Assistant studies in Burlington Vermont, at the University of Vermont Medical Center (AKA Fletcher Allen Health Care) and Northwest Technical Center St Albans VT respectively and found myself living in that beautiful state for next 9 years working as Nurse Aide and Medical Assistant at the University of Vermont Medical Center.

In 2017 my husband and I got married and decided to start our new life in sunny California where we moved in October of that year very next day after wedding day.

My professional interests include wellness and nutrition that promotes healthy eating and eating habits that can contribute to a healthy lifestyle. My philosophy of care is - empower patients to take control of their own health.

I am blessed to have two beautiful children and a supportive husband, so when I'm not providing support to my patients, I am spending time relaxing with my family.

Most of the hobbies I have evolve around relaxation and decompression. I do so by practicing yoga, cooking, and going on hikes with my family.

How Do Our Patients Feel About Us?
  • "I can't thank Physian Assistant Marilyn at Birch Pain & Spine Group enough! After several months of pain in my right arm, wrist, & thumb I was no longer able to use my right hand. Instead of surgery Marilyn told me about trigger point injections. She gave me trigger point injections to ease the pain & now the pain is almost nothing & I am able to use my hand again. Marilyn also treated my shoulder for pain & I am happy to say the pain is almost gone. Thank-you Marilyn!!!"
