Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Greetings! Welcome to my Web page. My name is Dr. Mojgan Khalpari, and I am director of women's imaging at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center.
I was trained in radiology at USC. Before joining Kaiser Permanente, I was an assistant professor at USC. I also worked in private practice at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance. Ever since I started medical school, I have been fascinated by the diagnostic process. I believe a radiologist should be an investigator at heart, determined to uncover the true nature of each patient's health problem.
My work is focused on the early detection of breast cancer. I am committed to creating a comfortable, caring environment for our patients and I make every effort to minimize the physical discomfort of biopsies and the emotional stress of cancer screening. I read mammograms, CT scans, ultrasounds, and plain films. To further investigate suspicious findings, I perform several types of biopsies. When surgery is necessary, I often perform small procedures that identify the suspect tissue for the surgeon. I work closely with a wide variety of physicians to manage each case in the most effective and compassionate manner.
My favorite activity is playing with my beautiful sons. I also like tennis and cooking traditional Persian dishes.
