    Dr. Khoynezhad is a life saver. My wife suffered an Aortic Dissection and was rushed to the nearest emergency facility. At the time we were with one of the largest medical provider but due to the life threatening emergency she was transported to the nearest ER location. This was truly a blessing in disguise since this is how Dr. Khoynezhad became our doctor. Since the mortality rate for someone who suffered an Aortic Dissection and the (Tevar) surgery Dr. Khoynezhad performed is in the high 80% range it's a miracle she's still with us. Fortunantely our medical provider agreeded to let Dr. Knoynezhad operate on my wife. My wife was transferred to one of our medical providers hospital and eventually home to recover. The medical attention and doctors care she received from our long time, big time provider was terrible compared to the care we received from Dr. K and his staff. We finally left our big provider and joined the medical group that Dr. Khoynezhad was with. He saves lives.

    Dr Khoynezhad quite simply saved my life. So to be totally honest , I cannot truly express what he means to myself and my family. I met him in early September 2015 in pretty bad shape. To say I was a little fearful of the surgery I needed to have is a little understatement. But that's where I knew Dr Khoynezhad was unique.... not different., but UNIQUE! He took the time to speak to me just like a normal bloke. He's confidence eased my concerns and needless to say the surgery and treatment following was simply astounding. He saved my life. And if you are fortunate to have Dr Khoynezhad as your physician/surgeon then not only will you get the best surgeon, but a mate as well...... He is Brady, MJ and Lebron all round into one.

    Dr. Khoynezhad performed my surgery at Cedars Sinai, January, 2010. I had an Ascending Aortic Aneurysm and bicuspid aortic valve. He replaced the aorta and arch and repaired the valve. I was living in Colorado then, but he was recommended to me by my Interventional Cardiologist at Scripps, La Jolla. After comparing experience of a thoracic surgeon at U of Colorado hospital, I chose Dr. Khoynezhad due to his, expertise, personality and numerous successful surgeries like mine. He's the best!!!

    I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Ali Khoynezhad and the very skilled staff at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. Although there is nothing overly pleasant about having open heart surgery, I can say that Dr. Khoynezhad and the Hospital Staff involved did everything in their power (from start to finish) to make it as good for me as they possibly could. They not only saved my life but also saved the quality of life that I had prior to my entering their hospital for surgery.

    Dr Khoynezhad operated on my son in September 2015. What a wonderful and caring man. I travelled from Australia to LA to help my son recover and was just amazed at the care that was given by himself and the hospital.
