What People Say About Dr. Kambiz Kosari, MD

Our son Michael was admitted to Northridge Hospital in early September 2016 for a bowel obstruction, he was in serious condition. Dr Kosari was referred to Michael's case. While tests & x-rays were being performed, he explained possible cause and answered our questions thoroughly. He did express his reluctance to perform a surgical procedure unless absolutely necessary which became the case on 9/11/16. Dr Kosari had to remove some of Michael's colon. He is a recovered & Happy Special Needs Son
