Param Dedhia, MD is a passionate internist, integrative medicine doctor, and director of sleep medicine at Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Dedhia (who prefers to be called his first name, Param) seeks to translate medical literature into everyday practices of optimal health.
Born and raised in Michigan, Param received his medical degree from Michigan State University where he cultivated his passion for Internal Medicine and lobbied for nutrition to be taught at all medical schools across the US. Moreover, with his family background from India, Param developed a special connection between western and eastern perspectives, and thus an appreciation to bridge modern and traditional approaches.
At Johns Hopkins, his training and faculty work spanned the fields of Internal Medicine, Gerontology and Public Health.
