    This man saved my life. With only fifteen minutes left of my life, Dr Malekmehr was able to operate, while I was having a heart attack, and performed a four-way by-pass. His follow through was fantastic. This doctor takes great pride in his work, and I will be forever indebted to him. I wish him a long life. Steven Steinberg

    Dr. Malekmehr is kind and gentle. He takes his time with his patients and still runs on time, even with a full waiting room! His staff, Greg and Margarita, are both very good at what they do. The three of them make a perfect team!

    On March 2, I was referred to Dr. Malekmehr because an aortic aneurysm was discovered in a ct scan. It was discovered by accident while I was being treated for shoulder pain. Dr. Malekmer scheduled the surgery for Monday, March 6. The surgery went very well, just a few small incisions in the groin area. In just 3 working days, Dr. M fixed the aneurysm in a warm and expert way. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Malekmehr. His smile goes from ear to ear.

    This Dr couldn't care less about his patients. The less time spent with the patient, the happier he is. Dr In n Out, IF he decides to even follow up! He DOES love to bill for services not even provided, so patient be very aware!

    This man may be a successful surgeon, but his bedside manner doesn't even exist. He is awful & couldn't care less! Watch his billing! He tries to cover himself, but in my case he wasn't successful after I brought ALL of his costly attempts to the attention of my insurance company (just the start) He takes full advantage if he doesn't participate with your insurance plan, & neglects to inform the patient or family (if the patient is not in the condition to inquire)

    What an amazing surgeon with great care for his patient. He sure makes you feel comfortable with his caring personality and his hands are magical in the operating room. I was referred to him by another physician and am very happy with his office staff, himself and his recommendations. May god give him strength to help out as many people as he can for many years to come.

    Fantastic doctor with a great staff, they were able to schedule me right away. Dr Malekmehr was very knowledgeable and answered everyour question I had and is very easy to talk to.

    I had surgery done recently with Dr. Malekmehr to remove my lung cancer. He removed the cancer, and was an excellent doctor overall. He explained the procedures, was always on time, and always available to reach. He truly cared about my well-being, constantly calling and checking up on me. The surgery itself exceeded my expectations. I had a very quick recovery—out of the hospital in 2 days. There were only barely visible small incisions left behind. Very happy to have chosen this doctor.

    Dr. Malekmehr is the best surgeon I have ever had. Although he is a busy man, he took the time to explain everything to me. Didn't leave the room until all my questions were answered. Knew I was in good hands when all the nurses said he is the best! Who better to tell you than the nurses who work with him in the O.R.

    Dr. Malekmehr came very highly recommended by my other doctors. He is currently treating me for peripheral artery disease. He is extremely competent and has improved the quality of my life. He also shows great compassion and concern for me as his patient.

    My grandmother had been examined by 3 different physicians in LA who all said they wouldn't be able to operate on her. Fortunately we took her to Dr. Malekmehr who is extremely caring and personable. We had a great experience with her preop and post operation with great results. My family and I highly recommend Dr. Malekmehr for any arterial thoracic and venus disease. Wish every doctor was as caring and experienced whom actually cared about their patience and not just how much money they makes

    Last Year I could barely walk 1/8 of a mile due to leg pain. Since Dr. Malekmehr operated and unblocked my veins and arteries, I can now walk pain free and have resumed my daily walking. Thank you Dr. Malekmehr
