History of the Darvish Family in Medicine
Drs. Maurice and Raphael Darvish continue a family tradition of practicing medicine. Dr. Maurice Darvish’s late father, Dr. Nejat Darvish, was a Medical Doctor who practiced medicine from 1940 to 1982. Dr. Nejat Darvish attended medical school in Geneva, Switzerland and completed his medical residency in Paris, France. Dr. Maurice Darvish’s late brother, Gideon Darvish M.D., was a well recognized rheumatologist who attended medical school with Maurice at the Université de Bordeaux II in Bordeaux, France. Prior to opening his private practice in Santa Monica, Gideon completed his medical residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York.
The family tradition in medicine now continues at Brentview Medical with a father and son physician team. Currently, there is a small patient base at Brentview Medical who has had 3 generations of the Darvish family treat them as their physician.
