Meet Hamed Afshari of Dripology in LA County and OC

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hamed Afshari, CEO of Dripology.

In 2013, a nurse, Hamed Afshari, was working in the ICU at MD Anderson, the #1 oncology hospital in the world, hanging an infusion of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) for a severely immunocompromised patient when he started to wonder: why wait until things have gotten to this point to use these immune boosting modalities.

A few years later, he would move to Los Angeles, California with his wife, celebrity makeup artist Ash Holm (iG@ Ash_kHolm). After working in the ICU at Cedar Sinai for a few years Hamed would partner up with his friend Dr. Paryavi to form Dripology.

A luxury in-home “biohacking” experience: Dripology sends their nurses to client’s private residence, hotel or office to give them a boost of hydration and key vitamins.

In 2019, they expanded to service New York City with plans to open operations in San Diego and San Francisco in 2020.

Dripology’s Instagram is flooded with celebrity testimonials and reposts from satisfied clients. The brand has done an amazing job of seamlessly bringing together social media marketing and medical professionalism.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Things started off hot for the brand when Kristin Cavallari posted using the service as part of her 2019 Oscars prep. This would be followed up with many more celebrity endorsements including Paris Hilton, Becky G, Massari, Erika Jayne, Bebe Rexha, Chiquis Rivera and a slate of other singers, models, athletes and influencers.

What’s significant is that to date, Dripology has never spent a dollar on influencer marketing. All their testimonials and reposts are organic and the result of truly providing a superior service.

The biggest challenge has been educating the general public on the benefits of IV hydration, helping people understand this isn’t meant to replace nutritional guidelines and more of a “biohacking” experience.

Having operations in LA and NYC, when COVID-19 hit, Dripology quickly decided to repurpose their company to help provide PPE to healthcare workers and was able to open lines of distribution for many hospitals and even the NYPD.

The brand also partnered up with celebrity makeup artist Ash_kholm to send over fifty care packages to nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists and other essential workers as part of their “Recognizing Healthcare Heroes” program.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Ever since I was a child my father told me he doesn’t care what I do so long as I do it with passion and do it the BEST I possibly can…”if you’re going to be a janitor then be the BEST janitor the world has ever seen”…I’ve had a bunch of different jobs and responsibilities and recreated myself many times until I found nursing.

I feel that as a nurse, we do the hardest job on earth…having experienced that at the bedside for years allows me to have a unique perspective as CEO of Dripology and provides me a special connection to the nurses on our team.
