My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The practice of good medicine is an art of combining up-to-date and personalized medical care for each patient; therefore, providing security of a trusted partnership based on respect. As your personal doctor, I strive to deliver competent, compassionate and proactive care. I take time to develop close relationships with my patients to make them feel comfortable, earn their trust and assist them with healthcare decisions. While there are standards of care I uphold, there are no uniform formulas for everyone; hence, I approach each patient as an individual and treat them accordingly. As a primary care physician, it is my responsibility to focus on the general well-being of my patients, be it medical or psychological. 

As a board-certified, internal medicine doctor, I am interested in the prevention and treatment of many health conditions, including cardiovascular health, diabetes, hypertension, nutrition, kidney and lung disease, and emotional health. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. 

During my 23 years in practice, I have been involved in outpatient and inpatient aspects of patient care. I have privileges at Scripps La Jolla Memorial Hospital and will continue to manage the care of my patients if they are admitted. 

My personalized healthcare practice currently serves San Diego, Sorrento Valley, La Jolla and Del Mar. My staff is fluent in Spanish.

Both my wife and I have had some serious issues which caused us to be in the hospital emergency room at separate times. When we notified Dr. Edward Kocharian not only was he directly in communication with the emergency room staff, but he actually came to the hospital to ensure all was going as it should. In addition when we are seeing multiple specialists we request that all the data be sent… See more

Dr. Kocharian finds solutions for my issues. He takes all the time I need with him and never rushes me. He listens and doesn't make me feel anything I ask is a dumb question.

from robin in CA February 10, 2024 for Edward Kocharian, MD

I love my MDVIP Dr Kocharian. I can access a same-day appointment so I can be treated the same day I become ill. The doctor has time and focus to listen to all my symptoms allowing him to understand what symptoms are related, and what things might be a trend or a warning. Additionally, appointments have time for an exam to feel my lymph nodes, see if I'm sweating and how tired I might… See more
