Many moons ago (January 2001) the good Dr. performed a quad bypass on me. He does not Cherry Pick! I am still alive and kicking at age 67, here in S. Florida. Every day is a bonus! Rich S.

He performed 3 way bypass Aug 2014. Dr Ben Simon is my Cardiologist, Tarzana. I was up and walking 2-3 miles 3 weeks later. 1st time I met Dr Gharavi, was 1 day after my surgery. He visited me twice a day until my discharge.
