Dr. Mehran is very personable and very clear in his information and explaining the various procedures. He has a very informative video that I view several times before scheduling an appt. to meet with him. Dr. Mehran is very hands on in his communication with his patients pre and post surgery. I am very happy with Dr. Mehran and his office staff and highly recommend him.

The free consultation I had with him was fine. Informative. However, the fraudulent $900 claim he tried to process through my insurance for that free consultation is beyond infuriating. I don't trust this man or anyone in his practice.

I had the removal of a cancer in the abdominal area. Being 85 years old I was concern but I wanted the cancer removed. The surgery went very well. I had no pain,no clots,no infections and I felt back to normal the following day. I had surgeries in the past but this one went very,very well. Dr. Mehran is very competent.very professional,and I would recommend him highly.

I was admitted into Los Robles Hospital with severe stomach complications and Dr. Mehran was assigned to my case. He was very nice, informative and made me feel very comfortable about the procedure he planned on doing. God forbid I should ever have those issues again, Dr. Mehran is my man!

I was given Dr. Mehran as I went in for emergency gallbladder issues. He was the doctor on call. Blessing to me as he did a great job with the issues I had. I liked his sense of humor and felt he was an excellent surgeon. Highly recommend. Not sure about Bariatric as I didn’t see him for this issue, but I am sure he is great.

Can’t say enough about my experience with Dr Mehran! Such a skilled surgeon, so knowledgeable and such a kind heart. This was my first surgery ever and I felt at such ease knowing it was Dr Mehran. He checked on me multiple times a day while I was inpatient post op and was so accessible once I was home if I had any questions. Very professional and passionate about his work. The best combination for a doctor in my opinion. I highly recommend Dr Mehran. Such a posit e experience.

I had a consultation with Dr. Mehran regarding a hernia. He was very professional, knowledgeable and was able to explain my options in a way a non-doctor could comprehend. Luckily I do not have to have surgery at this time, but if I need to in the future I will definitely be back

Though, as it turned out, I was not a good candidate for surgery. Dr Mehran patiently explained what the guidelines would be. I really appreciated his honesty and time taken with me.

After having paid a small fortune and been treated like an animal awaiting financial slaughter at the two major L.A. hospitals, I wasn't expecting much from my complimentary consultation at University Bariatrics. So you can imagine my delight when Dr. Mehran turned out to be the kindest, most thoughtful and empathetic Doctor I have ever met. He put me at ease and spent AN HOUR answering all my questions and concerns. He truly cares about his patients and makes their welfare his top priority.

I researched very carefully over a 2 year period to find the "right" bariatric surgeon for me. My criteria was for surgery stats, how the doctor treat patients post op and does he work well with others. As a nurse, I want to know how the surgeon treats the OR / hospital staff. Does he do his paperwork on time? Dr. Mehran practices his surgery like a team sport. It is not just about him. It is about mentoring to reach the goal and EVERYONE participates - family included.

Very likely I would recommend Dr. Mehran to someone else. Dr. Mehran has a great bedside manner. Always kept me chuckling. He explained everything so I understood what was happening to me and what was going to happen next. I always felt like I was in good hands.

I am extremely grateful that I was referred to Dr. Mehran for my gastric sleeve. He is an excellent surgeon. Great bedside manner, always happy and smiling, great listener and was quick to respond to questions after surgery. I could not have made a better choice and I highly recommend anyone considering bariatric surgery to give him a call!

Dr. Mehran is a very thorough, highly qualified physician who performed a gastric surgery "sleeve" procedure. 6 months later, i have dropped around 80 pounds, with no side-effects. Dr. Mehran took the time to address my concerns and answer my questions. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone interested in the bypass procedures.

I was admitted to the hospital with serious gallbladder issues including biliary hyperkinesia (overactive gallbladder). As it was just before a holiday weekend, the hospitalist in charge of my case expressed concern regarding which surgeons were available. He was very pleased when Dr. Mehran agreed to take my case. Dr. Mehran was personable, down-to-earth, & honest about my situation; my family & I also appreciated his sense of humor. I'm recovering very well & am grateful for Dr. Mehran's care.
