About Dr. David I Deyhimy MD

Dr. David Deyhimy is an Orange County physician board-certified in both anesthesiology and addiction medicine. With over 20 years of combined practice experience, he splits his time actively practicing in both medical specialties. Dr. Deyhimy graduated from the University of Nevada School of Medicine in 2001. The following year, he began his residency in anesthesiology at the University of California Davis Medical Center, becoming chief resident in 2004 followed by a Cardiovascular and Thoracic anesthesiology fellowship in 2005-2006. During this period, he was the recipient of UC Davis Medical Center House Staff Professionalism Award 2005, California Society of Anesthesiology Resident Research Competition winner 2005 and Outstanding Resident Teaching Award in 2006. Since 2007 he has practiced anesthesiology at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center. His commitment to addiction medicine was a direct outgrowth of his work in anesthesiology where the complex interactions of disease, surgery and drugs are often literally the difference between life and death. Dr. Deyhimy founded South County Addiction Treatment Services in 2013 and has been providing medically-assisted withdrawal (detox) and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for drug and alcohol treatment program patients and for patients in the community. A firm believer in harm reduction and evidence-based medicine, Dr. Deyhimy actively promotes MAT as the single most effective pharmacological means for treating addiction and preventing death. He is the medical director of Solace Foundation of Orange County, which provides education and training in opioid overdose reversal and distributes Naloxone reversal kits throughout Orange County. To date over 8000 kits have been distributed with nearly 2000 documented overdose reversals. Addiction medicine affords a physician the opportunity to save lives every day, and is truly one of the most rewarding and gratifying specialties of medicine to be practicing in.

Dr. Deyhimy is the best! He was my anesthesiologist for two recent surgeries. I couldn't have been in better hands. I am a difficult patient to install the breathing tube in and he is masterful. His extra patience and skill left me with no pain after the surgery, not even a sore throat. I had no nausea whatsoever. He called me on the phone the night before each of my surgeries, came early before the surgeries to address all my concerns and problems, and visited me the evening of my surgery in the hospital. He is the best of the best!
