Dr. Ali Torab Parhiz

Dr. Parhiz is a board certified Vitreo-retinal surgeon with extensive training and experience in diagnosing and treating retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions, trauma, macular holes and retinal detachments.

Dr. Parhiz finished his medical school training at St. Louis University School of Medicine and then went on to do his residency at State University of New York at Stony Brook where he also served as chief resident during his final year. Intrigued by the beauty and intricate nature of the most vital structure in the human eye, he pursued a fellowship in vitreo-retinal disease and surgery at one of the most coveted training programs in the country, the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where he trained with some of the most prominent and innovative figures in the world of retina. Dr. Parhiz has been involved in extensive research and publication and plan to bring that innovation to the Treasure Valley. Dr. Parhiz is an active member of American Academy of Ophthalmology and American Society of Retina Specialist. 

After working for years in Indiana and Wyoming, Dr. Parhiz founded Idaho Retina Center with the vision of bringing state of art retina care in a truly compassionate setting to the Treasure Valley. He spends much of his time off exploring all that Boise has to offer. Along with spending time with his family, he enjoys trail running, traveling and cooking.
