Dr. Hendifar is a joke! I wish I could give zero to this Dr. The only reason he is the medical director of the department is because of his connections and his relatives working in this hospital. He does not have the knowledge or expertise and absolutely is not qualified for this position. His career circles around his nurse Christine and without her he does not exist! He brags about his medical trials but they are all fake! It just benefits his grants money and his fake status. Please and please before choosing this unskilled and uncompassionate Dr. do your homework and choose another physician . It is a shame that Dr. like Hendifar has ruined the name of hospitals like cedars Sinai!

I don't know what is motivating the comments of the "one star" grade from the prior commentator. Hendifar is a brilliant guy and has saved my life. I less than 5 months of treatment under his regimen my liver lesions have gone away and the head tumor on my cancer is less than 60% of its original size. On top of his professionalism he is a caring human being. As for Cedars, it is a giant place and getting involved with the size and function will be difficult but worth it. I travel from NV fo

I cannot speak for Dr. Hendifar's knowledge when it comes to the other cancers he specializes in, but I can say that attending his clinic for Carcinoid cancer treatment is a giant waste of your time. If you need an oncologist in the Los Angeles region for this disease, you are much better off seeking help from much more qualified doctors out of state. His lack of interest in expanding his own expertise in this very complicated cancer seriously limits and damages his patients.
