Dr. Mandana Ahmadian has the following 2 specialties
- Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

+I have been a patient of Dr. Ahmadian's for more than 10 years. As an insulin-dependent diabetic for almost 50 years, I have had the privilege of her knowledge, patience, skill, insights, support, advice, and encouragement to always improve my control and my health. She has taken the time to get to know me not as a patient but as a person so that she can treat my diabetic condition with helpful suggestions, sometimes pointed remarks, and constructive criticisms to insure the best possible results and outcomes for our visits. In my opinion, she is a very gifted and unique doctor. Having begun my transition to a closed system insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring regiment just two weeks ago, I am proud to say that I think that with Dr. Ahmadian's help, knowledge, and encouragement, my best days for diabetic healthcare lie ahead for me (and for my family as well). Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Dr. Ahmadian!!!
I asked for the iced pack they used on me after my biopsy, I was told it will be recycled for the next patient in presence of the doctor . They could have asked for few dollars to even to sell it to me . I showed up at my kids school and some kind Secretary saw my neck swelled up she went and got one iced pack from the school fridge for me. Doing little things make a huge difference for the patients you treat.
Doctor Ahmadian was the third specialist (after neurologist and cardiologist) that I saw for the problem of trembling fingers when I tried to pick something up. Very quickly she identified this as a symptom of thyroid imbalance, and prescribed appropriate medication. She explained the condition and the expected effect of the medication and answered all my questions. She also scheduled an ultrasound to identify the number and size of nodules in my thyroid, and then a biopsy of the largest nodule to check for the possibility of cancer. After the biopsy (which indicated no cancer), she explained that a single biopsy might not show cancer if the needle if another nodule that had the problem, but that the probability of a false negative was low. With a hyperthyroid condition, the amount of the medication required must be verified quarterly. Medication is not the best long term solution for hyperthyroid. She outlined my options, explaining each one. When I procrastinated, she encouraged me to make a decision. Since only one lobe of my thyroid had "hot" nodules, I took the option of having only that one lobe removed. (The other two options would have meant that the thyroid no longer functioned, and I'd have to take daily pills, though this situation means that the level of meds does not have to be adjusted, since the thyroid production is always zero.) I had the surgery done by a surgeon I already knew and trusted, and at my first post op meeting with Dr. Ahmadian, the test showed optimal results: my remaining lobe was producing a good level of the necessary hormone. I would recommend Dr. Ahmadian for anyone with hyper or hypo thyroidism, or for anyone looking for an endocrinologist.
