Dr. Dariush Saghafi, MD
I've been a Cleveland, Ohioan since 1968. My father's a practicing surgeon while my mother's a retired CCRN nurse. My pre-med degrees are in Mathematics & Secondary Education from John Carroll University which led me into my medical studies at The Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. Not only did I receive EXCELLENT medical school training in GUADALAJARA but I became part of a physician's group which built & currently runs a 200 bed Hospital in a rural and mountainous region just north of Guadalajara in the State of Aguascalientes. I completed my Internal Medicine internship & Neurology specialty training at Case Western Reserve's School of Medicine alongside world leaders in the field allowing me to proudly practice now as a NEUROLOGIST since 1999. I'm the DIRECTOR of the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center's HEADACHE CLINIC & air monthly radio programs of the Ohio Physicians Educational Network on WHK 1420 AM. These live broadcasts have been heard continuously by a loyal listening audience of 40,000 since 2003. In addition, I'm the Assistant Wrestling Coach for John Carroll University's Varsity Wrestling Team where along with my wife, Patricia support the activities of our 4 wonderful children who do everything from compose and play music on violins and piano to competing in Crossfit and Rugby competitions as they regularly remind us why we are such proud and lucky parents.

in Akron, OH |
It's rare to find a doctor with such insight & pure perspective. How much it means to be treated with the care and kindness that he gives, so freely, with no preconceptions weighing him down. His positive spirit and open ears/mind generates a concerted synergy with his patients, casts light on the direction to take, and propels all forward. I’ll always be grateful for the help that he’s given to our family, and for making such a difference in so many lives/ways.
