My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I aim to be each of my patients advocate and to 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 better take care of them. 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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Lashkari

from Peggy in CA March 22, 2023 for Saman Lashkari, MD

Dr. Lashkari has been a wonderful doctor as well as a sympathetic friend at the time of my husband's death. Dr. Lashskari responds almost immediately to any questions emailed to him and follows up with any issues. He is extremely caring, empathetic, and highly knowledgeable on many different matters. Dr. Lashkari encourages healthy habits: eating right, exercising, getting enough sleep,… See more

from Amy in CA March 28, 2020 for Saman Lashkari, MD

With all that medical professionals have to do right now, it was heartwarming for us to get an email from Dr. Lashkari to check on our well-being, and then to continue with an email exchange. We are new to this practice and feel so cared for. He has resolved issues, taken tests no other doctor thought to take, and he has shown interest and attentiveness beyond anything that we have ever… See more

from Moira in CA March 12, 2020 for Saman Lashkari, MD

Dr. Lashkari was referred to us by a dear family friend that had been his patient for years. Because my mother had dual coverage, resulting in no additional out of pocket expenses, I refused to commit to the expense of a concierge physician service. As my aging mother's medical needs increased it became increasingly more difficult to manage her care, so I finally caved and signed up with… See more

from Ted in CA March 12, 2020 for Saman Lashkari, MD

Dr. Lashkari has been my primary care physician for many years. Over this time he not only brought all my health markers into optimum range, he has gone way above and beyond as a consummate physician on several occasions. The most distressing situation arose when my wife and I arrived in Portugal on the same day that I started to experience terrible gastric distress, fever and malaise. Even… See more

Dr Lashkari is always there when needed with listening well and applying his knowledge for recommendations. He has called me from out of town just to tell me test results. I can call anytime knowing he will respond. He treats seniors with the same diligence he treats the young. He has become a very important and trusted part of my life.

from Tobi in CO March 11, 2020 for Saman Lashkari, MD

When my doctor of many years moved I was devastated. I felt abandoned and scared as I was getting older and had some issues. I felt that it was time to find someone that I could relate to. I interviewed a couple of MDVIP doctors and chose Dr. Lashkari. It took a little while for each of us to get to know what we both wanted from each other, but once we got on the same page I couldn't… See more

from Laura in CA March 1, 2020 for Saman Lashkari, MD

A number of years ago I was referred to Dr. Lashakari by a well regarded nurse who, at the time, was working for one of the nations top Oncologists. It was the greatest gift and remains one that I am forever grateful for, because Dr. Lashkari epitomizes what great medicine is and sadly isn't often found in healthcare anymore. He is smart, experienced, thoughtful, kind, considerate, well… See more
