Dr. Freidoon Azizi, MD, FACOG, FACS

May. 21

To Dr. Freidoon Azizi, the health and wellness of others has always been a passion. Though he practiced medicine in Illinois for over 40 years, his journey began in his home country of Iran in the 1960s. He received his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) from the University of Tabriz. He then moved to the United States to perform his residency at Mount Sinai Hospital and his fellowship at the esteemed Pritzker School of Medicine, at the University of Chicago.

With his formidable education, Dr. Azizi was finally able to move on to what he does best: helping others. Certified in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Azizi has supported thousands of women through a difficult time in their lives, allowing them to come out on the other side healthier than ever. Patients rave about his brilliant work and bedside behavior.

But Dr. Freidoon Azizi’s impact on the world of medicine doesn’t end there. From 1982 to 2010, Dr. Azizi served as an associate professor of clinical obstetrics and gynecology at the prestigious Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. There, he helped shaped the minds of students into prospective medical professionals who help promote the reproductive health of women across the country.

After decades of helping others live the healthiest lives possible, Dr. Freidoon Azizi has retired. The Assyrian Cultural Foundation congratulates Dr. Azizi for his prolific career. His dedication to his work helped thousands of women live healthier, happier lives, and we couldn’t be more thankful for his impact not only on the Assyrian community, but the greater Chicago area. We were honored to be visited by this respected doctor, and we hope retirement shows him a life of relaxation and happiness.
