Dr. Pedram Behzadi, MD


Growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, I had no option but to embrace my unique situation. My Iranian immigrant parents emphasized the importance of integration but not losing sight of my heritage either. Being a practicing Iranian Muslim in Oklahoma that grew up no different outside of the home than other children my age, I realized that for many I was the one who would be leaving a lasting impression both as a Muslim and as an Iranian-American.

As a young child in Tulsa, I always dreamt of seeing the world and to confirm that we are more similar than dissimilar. Going to Iran every other summer as a child enabled me to not only appreciate my culture and heritage, it gave me appreciation for the sacrifices my parents made, as well as for the fortunes we have in the USA. From learning every capital in the world, to spinning the globe and letting my finger randomly determine "where I would live or go to next in life." My passion for the world led me to Emory University in Atlanta, where I majored in International Studies with specialization in Sub-Saharan Africa. My dream as a child was to practice medicine, which led me to the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, where I met my now wife, and best friend, Christen. Our love for cultures and the world lead us to medical work in Kenya and France during our time at OU. 

Islam, Iran and the Middle East does not have the best image in today's western media and society. My hopes with IIC Firm are to show western professionals that we are more connected, and that through cultural understandings, prosperous partnerships and lasting relationships are possible
