Daliah Wachs is an American radio personality, host of the "Doctor Daliah" show. Wachs is a board certified family physician who started a radio show to allow callers to receive free medical advice on the air during the recession in early 2009 on KLAV in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show was picked up by KDWN in Las Vegas later that month and by KFNX in Phoenix, Arizona by late 2009. In April 2010 The Dr. Daliah Show began airing on WZFG in Fargo, North Dakota. Within two years of her premiere on air, her show expanded to several cities, and XM Satellite began airing her show nationally in January 2011 on America's Talk Channel 158, and soon thereafter Channel 166.

Wachs was named by Talkers Magazine as one of America's 250 Most Influential Hosts.[1]

In September 2011, Genesis Communications Network chose to nationally syndicate her show.

By 2013 her show was broadcast by iHeart Radio.

Wachs has made numerous television and radio interviews and gives lectures throughout the country. She is involved with several charities,[2][3][4][5] particularly FAST4Kids (Finding Autistic Solutions for Tomorrow)[6] due to her having two family members with autism.

In 2015 Dr. Daliah helped create, in response to blood bank shortages, Nevada Blood Donation Day.[7][8][2][9]

In 2016, she took the campaign nationally, helping create Blood Donation Days in multiple states, National Blood Donation Day and National Blood Donation Week, working with Vitalant (formerly) United Blood Services, American Red Cross and blood banks throughout the United States.[10][11][12][8][13][14][15]

In 2017, Talkers Magazine awarded her "Humanitarian of the Year."[16]

In 2020, efforts to put an end to biannual time changes stalled in multiple state legislatures, she and Dr. Paul Kalekas, Internist, began a petition to Congress for the #SickofSpringForward and #FinishedWithFallBack campaign, due to studies citing health risks caused by the disruption in one's circadian rhythm.
