Dr. Pirastehfar graduated from Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (A former affiliate of the University of Pennsylvania) and finished my residency at Hahnemann University hospital (Drexel University) in Philadelphia. After finishing his residency he chose a career as a hospitalist, which is one of the most recent fields in practicing medicine.

As a hospitalist his job is to take care of hospitalized patients. To diagnose, treat and address their acute medical issues. To request consultation when necessary and coordinating patient’s care among all physicians on a case and finally making a smooth transition when discharging a patient from the hospital. Dr. Pirastehfar practices at St. John's medical center and will be happy to take care of you or your loved ones if happens to be admitted to the hospital.
