Our story

Our company was born when a little girl split her chin open...

Brave Care was born when Dr. Corey Fish helped take care of a little girl who got a nasty gash on her chin and needed stitches.

The father of that girl was a serial entrepreneur Darius Monsef who wanted all kids to have that same quality of care. His friend, Asa Miller was another father who had an urgent care need Dr. Fish was able to handle comfortably and immediately. Along with Maryam Taheri, the four founders set out to build the best urgent care clinics for kids.

The founders still regularly bring their own kids into Brave Care and are proud to see the clinic leadership continuing to provide incredible care for kids that are sick or injured.

Our Leadership

We bring our own kids to Brave Care, so we know first hand how important thoughtful, high quality and compassionate care is for little kids. We also know what it’s like to be a parent that is worried and confused about what’s going on with the little people we care most about. It is from this place of deep empathy that we build the future of pediatric care we know our, and all kids deserve.
