- Posted on: Jan 8 2024
We are proud that our very own, Cedars-Sinai Smidt Heart Institute cardiologist, Dr. Arash Nayeri has been selected by his peers as an outstanding practicing cardiologist in Los Angeles. Doctors cannot pay to be selected as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Their peer-to-peer nominations and rigorous research process ensure only the most qualified physicians are included. While many other sites may make the same claim, patients and physicians across the country trust that Castle Connolly always stands by this promise.
Drs Caren and Urman brought Dr. Arash Nayeri into their practice knowing that he was a special young cardiologist and caring physician. Since joining our office mid 2022, more and more patients have found confidence and comfort in his broad knowledge base and reassuring bedside manner. Now, his senior colleagues and the local medical community have recognized these same qualities as well. Dr. Nayeri was also named a Super Doctors® Rising Star for 2024.
