Dr. Irv Danesh was born in Brooklyn, New York. Before he started college, he and his family had schlepped to five new homes because of his fathers jobs. This was to be the recurrent theme throughout his life. Like the main character of his first novel Doctor Taco, Irv just didnt concentrate well in college. Women, and the lack of them, had a lot to do with that. After the rejections for admission to medical schools in the States arrived, Irv journeyed south of the border.
Two years of cultural and academic re-education enabled Irv to trek back to the promised land of Brooklyn. More specifically, Irv was nurtured at the worlds largest community hospital, Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center. This mega-hospital provided him with enough stab wounds, gunshot wounds, blunt trauma, and general patient stupidity to regale his friends with stories for years to come. After two years of surgical training, he decided he didnt want to spend the rest of his life removing gallbladders or doing bariatric surgery. Being somewhat of an adrenaline junkie, he was in the right place at the right time to snag a residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in the new field of Emergency Medicine. He has practiced in inner-city Emergency Departments for forty years.
Dr. Irvs job statistically has a high rate of burnout. He fought through two of these periods, the first by moving to Boston and serving as Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Tufts School of Medicine. He continued his career as Associate Director of Emergency Medicine at the Lawrence General Hospital in Lawrence, Massachusetts. It was here that he had his second period of burnout. He again was in the right place at the right time, helping birth USA Networks hit TV show Royal Pains.
Doctor Danesh can now be found happily retired in South Beach where he spends his time with his grammatically correct wife, Fanny and enjoying the sun rising over the ocean in the morning.
