About me

Welcome to my Web page. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful patients and skilled, knowledgeable colleagues. I look forward to working with you to care for your vision and overall health.

Biography

I was born in Shiraz, Iran, but spent most of my childhood and high school years in Santa Monica, California. Upon graduating from high school, I attended Harvard University for my undergraduate years. Prior to entering medical school, I spent a couple of years doing medical research. I then attended medical school at the University of Vermont to stay close to my wife, who was finishing up her senior year at Harvard College. We then returned to Southern California for the remainder of my training, where I did an internship in internal medicine at UCLA and an ophthalmology residency at UC Irvine. I then performed a two-year subspecialty fellowship at UC Irvine in diseases and surgery of the retina and vitreous. I feel indebted to UC Irvine for the excellent training they provided me and, as a result, I am still involved in mentoring and teaching the current ophthalmology residents and retina fellows at UC Irvine.

About my practice

Before I joined Kaiser Permanente, I participated in many important national clinical trials that have strongly influenced the way vitreoretinal specialists practice today. I use advanced medical and surgical techniques for the treatment of all vitreoretinal and macular diseases, including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachment (simple and complex), and macular conditions such as macular holes and epiretinal membranes. Besides treating a patient's specific retinal condition, I also always emphasize the importance of a patient's overall health. I remind my patients of the importance of blood pressure control, blood sugar control (in diabetics), and the need for diet, exercise, and smoking cessation. If necessary, I also collaborate with a patient's primary care physician to help the patient achieve health goals.

How I thrive

I am making every effort to practice what I preach to my patients. I exercise regularly by running, lifting weights, and practicing yoga. I also enjoy reading, both for pleasure and to stay current by reading about the latest advances in vitreoretinal surgery and medical retina. I am developing a passion for film and cinema and try to watch as many movies as I can (if there is not a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game or football game on TV!). To me, it is very important to make every effort to be healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
