Dr. Yashar's intelligence is matched by his caring and calming nature. His reputation among his peers at Cedars is impeccable. He took care of my husband and turned things around when his prior cardiologist couldn't. I recommend him to all my loved ones without hesitation.

Dr. Yashar is incredibly knowledgeable, dependable, and kind. He has a unique way about him that puts you at ease and can explain things to you. I've seen perhaps 20 doctors over my lifetime, but none like him. His staff is exceptional too. I am grateful to have him as my doctor for the past five years. He's not contracted with my insurance but he's worth it.

Dr Yashar came to visit me at Cal Rehab. In the two weeks I was there, he changed around all my cardiac and diabetic medications from a total of 18 down to 6. 6! And I’ve never felt better. He cares when other doctors don’t. He coordinates things for you behind the scenes that you may never know or find out about much later. He’s a kind person and a consummate professional. I recommend him to any friend or family.

Great doctor. Amazing staff. Knowledgeable, reliable, and trusted. He is the best of Cedars-Sinai. I signed up as a concierge medicine patient and the relief of knowing I have someone like him to call in case of emergencies is invaluable. He goes above and beyond.

Dr. Yashar is honestly one of the most caring and helpful doctors I have ever had. He's amazing. Simply put: he turned my life around. His staff is just as good. He's not in-network with my insurance so he costs a little more, but is well worth it. I'm very grateful for him.

I have needed so much attention in helping care for my Father who has had a very rapid decline during COVID times. Dr. Yashar, Maricela and Julisa (spelling??) have been so attentive and responsive during a time that has been very scary and upsetting for our family. They have been a lifeline..literally. To be able to call them and get help with home health care, tests, etc... I am forever grateful and I highly recommend Dr. Yashar He has consistently taken great care of my Father for many years.

Dr. Yashar helped turn my life around.  I was hospitalized multiple times over a year with congestive heart failure with my doctors in Orange County.  I finally gave up and came to Cedars-Sinai where I was assigned to his care.  Since then, I have not required further hospitalization due to his excellent care.  He's caring, capable, and compassionate.  You can't ask for better.
