It is with great sadness that the family of Dr. Manochehr Sobhany announces his passing, at 79 years of age, on Thursday, May 4, 2017.

A beloved doctor, Dr. Sobhany devoted his life to the practice of medicine, caring for thousands of patients throughout his 50 year career. A dedicated student of medicine, Dr. Sobhany completed his medical degree at Tabriz Medical School in his native Iran before moving to the United States in 1964 to complete his internship and residency in New Haven, Connecticut and Washington, DC. His pulmonary fellowship took place at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Washington, DC until 1970, where he became the Public Health Officer at the Department of Human Resources in Washington, DC. He completed his Masters of Public Health at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland in 1974.



Establishing his private practice in Virginia in 1975, Dr. Sobhany was known for his compassionate and kind style of care. His patients spanned generations, and Dr. Sobhany greeted each one, regardless if it was their first visit or their 100th, with the same affable spirit and signature smile and laugh.

Dr. Sobhany will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him, including his four children Sholeh, Nunu, Rana and Ramin. Dr. Sobhany will also be fondly remembered by four grandchildren, Alexandra, Ethan, Ian and Travis, as well as by his siblings Mahin, Hooshang and Fereshteh.

A funeral ceremony in memory of Dr. Sobhany will be held on Monday, May 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m., at Dignity Memorial Park, 7482 Lee Highway, Falls Church, VA 22042
