Dr Avizeh Faraji made her first appearance on 15 September 2016. She is portrayed by Shanaya Rafaat.


Avizeh who is covering for Dr Rhys Thomas as he is on holiday, is a hepatologist who Phil Mitchell and his son Ben Mitchell visit in hospital. Ben asks her about the possibility of donating part of his liver to Phil and how he can find out if he is a match.

She explains that Phil still needs to be accepted onto the cadaveric list and have been sober for six months, and that they need to consider the risks to Ben due to the high mortality rate in liver transplants. After Phil leaves, Ben tells Dr Faraji that he is young and healthy and is adamant he wants to go through with the operation, but she tells him that there are still no guarantees and gives Ben some literature to read before he leaves.

Two months later, Phil visits her again along with his wife Sharon Mitchell and daughter Louise Mitchell She commends Phil for staying sober for six months and says that she will refer him for assessment to the transplant list. After running some tests, she tells Phil that his liver is showing no signs of recovery and that on average, most people with livers in similar condition to Phil's do not survive for more than a year. Dr Faraji then explains that she will refer Phil to a specialist liver transplant unit.
