Care Philosophy

My practice is designed to provide highly personalized medicine. I aim to be an advocate for each of my patients and work with them individually to help them reach their health goals. My MDVIP practice gives me the necessary time to be detailed and thorough and focus on cardiovascular prevention and ensuring that all my patients are up to date on all their routine health maintenance needs on an annual basis. With new and improved tests including the Cleveland heart panel and non-invasive testing to screen for earliest signs of arterial thickening, I am able to have a more personalized focus on each of my patients and help them reduce their cardiovascular risk. I look forward to getting to know each of my patients on a personal level as I believe it allows me to take better care of them.Read more

Extremely caring and knowledgeable. Always available. I once called him from Hawaii in the middle of the night and he responded to our emergency with great advice. He is always researching the best mode of treatment. I totally trust his judgment. He is very patient and listens well, I never feel rushed. Office staff is friendly and courteous.

Dr. Lashkari says...

As an MDVIP affiliated physician, I offer a concierge style practice that is affordable and highly personalized to each patient. For a small annual membership (less than $5/day) I am able to offer preventive screening and testing not covered by insurance. In addition I am available 24/7 with same- or next-day appointments that rarely require more than a few minutes in my waiting room.

My own personal interests include physical fitness and healthy nutrition and I enjoy sharing my experiences with my patients and getting them to be more proactive and involved with exercise and healthy eating. I see all of my own patients in the hospital setting and in rehab facilities and if need be, perform home visits as well on my home-bound patients.

I enjoy organizing walks and exercise related events for my patients to help them get more motivated and involved in their health-care. I also have a geriatric background having completed a fellowship at UCLA and this helps me utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to keep my elder patients out of the hospital and to try to keep them as young as possible.
