FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 1990



PHILOSOPHY: One day he would like to
open a home for the elderly, not for
business, but just to help the old people
and offer love and care.

BACKGROUND: Ebrahim Fayazi was born
and raised in Tehran, Iran. His father
was killed in an automobile accident
when his mother was five months
pregnant with him. His mother worked
as a seamstress making liners for baby
Fayazi grew up in a small apartment
in the Jewish ghetto with his mother
and grandmother, who became his other
primary caregiver. He encountered
another hardship at age seven when his
grandmother died.
Fayazi attended a Jewish school for
12 years funded by the French Alliance.
His studies were in Persian, French and
Hebrew. Sometimes when he waited for
the bus to take him to school, he and
his friends were beaten by children from
neighboring towns. However, he adds
that practicing Judaism was not a
problem when he was growing up.
After finishing his secondary
education, he studied medicine at the
University of Tehran for seven years.
This completed a lifelong dream for
Fayazi who wanted to become a doctor
from the time, as a young boy, he
watched a midwife deliver his cousin's
baby. During medical school he only
slept 2-3 hours a night because he
worked and studied. Today he describes
himself as a workaholic, still requiring
only a few hours of sleep each night.
Fayazi decided to complete his medical
training in the field of obstetrics and
gynecology in the United States. He
came to Detroit because he was
accepted at St. John Hospital. He then
completed his training at Sinai, where
he joined the staff.
He has been married for 27 years. His
four children attended Akiva Hebrew
Day School. Before moving to West
Bloomfield, he was a member of Young
Israel of Southfield.
Fayazi remarks that he has worked
hard from his humble beginnings in
Tehran to achieve his professional
accomplishments in Detroit. His
philosophy: "I can do it!"
