He moved to Minnesota in 2012 to be near his family after spending years on the east coast for his medical training. He earned his dermatology degrees from Ohio State University, Columbus, OH.

Dr. Darabi earned his MD from Aachen University, Germany, and his doctorate in immunology from Ulm University, Germany.

Dr. Darabi grew up in Cologne, Germany, in a family of three boys, and went to medical school in Aachen, Germany. As part of his medical studies, he spent a year in the United States at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and six months in Valencia, Spain, at Universidad de Valencia. After finishing medical school in Germany, he decided to pursue medical training and a life in the United States and moved to New York City.

Dr. Darabi completed his post-graduate medical training at Montefiore Medical Center in New York and Ohio State University, Columbus. He then moved to Minnesota to be near family.

In his free time Dr. Darabi enjoys learning new things outside of medicine, exercising and traveling nationally and internationally. He was a medical volunteer in Vietnam and Costa Rica. He enjoys international food and (in moderation) a handy project at home.
