Dr. Zadeh's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Zadeh "Michael A. Zadeh, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a Board Certified General Surgeon practicing in the Encino and Greater Los Angeles areas. He completed his residency training in General Surgery at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey – an affiliate of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine – where he served as Chief Resident. Dr. Zadeh moved to the Los Angeles area to rejoin his family whom all live in the area. "You can't do great work if you're not passionate about what you do." Dr. Zadeh's passion for surgery is reflected in the wide variety of surgical procedures he performs. He is an expert in laparoscopic surgery, and is one of the few surgeons in the Los Angeles area who performs Robotic Surgery, including robotic gallbladder removal and robotic hernia repair. His dedication to providing his patients with state of the art minimally invasive techniques and evidence-based treatment strategies has led not only to great surgical results with minimal scars, but has also produced the best outcomes for his patients. A Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of several surgical societies, Dr. Zadeh has received recognition for his achievements with several awards including the Patients Choice Award and Best in Encino Award. Dr. Zadeh is also a skilled provider of non-surgical cosmetic treatments including Botox and Juvederm. His intimate knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy enables him to provide precise injections that produce the exact results desired by patients, and avoids treatment complications. Honored by patients as one of only 3% of physicians in the nation to receive the prestigious Most Compassionate Doctor Recognition, Dr. Zadeh has become known for his commitment to superior patient care and education. This motivation resonates throughout his practice and office staff, who pride themselves in taking extra steps for their patients' satisfaction. Dr. Zadeh's patients receive exceptional service, not just good medical care. The time spent with our patients is deeply appreciated and every patient is devoted the necessary time to ensure that all of their concerns have been thoroughly addressed. English, Armenian and Farsi (Persian) are all spoken fluently in the office, and can therefore offer better communication with any patients that speak these languages. Availability to patients is a priority, appointments can always be made without delay, and rarely will it take longer than 10 minutes before you are personally seen by Dr. Zadeh at the office. In his free time, Dr. Zadeh enjoys his other main passions in life: His wife and two young boys."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zadeh "Dr. Zadeh has always believed that the best way to care for patients is to care about them. At our practice patients receive exemplary service, not just good medical care. The time spent with our patients' is deeply appreciated and every patient is devoted the necessary time to ensure that all of their questions and concerns have been fully addressed. We understand that any surgery may be a source of anxiety and hope that by keeping our patients well informed of their treatment plan will help alleviate some of their apprehension. We have all been patients ourselves at one point or another, and know how frustrating it can be to spend an hour in the waiting room before seeing the physician. Therefore we make accessibility to our patients a top priority, with waiting room times rarely exceeding 10 minutes and appointments promptly obtainable."
