Dr Foad Kiamanesh was born in Chicago but has lived most of his adult life in the DFW area. He received his medical degree at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland Ohio before returning to Texas to complete his Internal Medicine Residency at Baylor College of Medicine. After spending the first five and a half years as an attending hospitalist at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, he decided to join the UT Southwestern to continue his career. The opportunity to join a prestigious institution like UTSW on a joint venture with Texas Health at their new campus in Frisco close to his home was too much to pass up. He was especially inspired by the opportunity to establish a culture of compassionate, evidence-based medicine at this new facility. He loves to spend time with his wife and 2 children and is an avid runner. He has a special love for basketball and the Dallas Mavericks in particular.
