Dr. Iraj Sabahi, M.D.
Dr. Iraj Sabahi is Board Certified in Rheumatology and Internal Medicine and has been in private practice in California since 2010.
Dr. Sabahi graduated from Tehran University of Medical Sciences in 1992. He gained experience by working in different positions in Iran (his father land), including at a national Iranian oil company and as a medical liaison officer in Tehran private hospital.
After immigration to Canada and before reclaiming his medical license, he had firsthand experience as a rheumatology patient. This strengthened his goal to provide the foremost comprehensive and up to date patient care. As a volunteer he was also involved with nicotine research in CAMH institute in Toronto, Canada.
After passing his Canadian and American exams, he was accepted into the internal medicine program of Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. His experience with a rheumatologic disease (Wegner Granulomatosis) and diagnostic challenges were the driving reasons for him to choose rheumatology as his specialty.
After finishing his residency, he completed one year of a clinical research fellowship in MedStar Health Research Institute and gained invaluable experience in clinical trials. This experience has shaped his belief that innovation is a must in any scientific field and that patients have the right to be informed about the current clinical trials and the availability of new medications and procedures. This allows patients the opportunity to make informed decisions.
Dr. Sabahi then completed two years of clinical fellowship training in the Washington Hospital Center / Georgetown University program. He has been in private practice since 2010 in the state of California, with offices in Pleasanton and Turlock. Dr. Sabahi provides in-office infusion and prolotherapy services, in addition to conducting clinical research.
Dr. Sabahi enjoys spending his free time with his young son and daughter.
