Specialties

Dr. Saman Lashkari has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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 THINK THAT DR. LASHKARI IS A FANTASTIC LOVING DOCTOR

He cares ... is exceedingly thorough and doesn't 'SCARE' me. So many doctors I find frightening ... he is very comforting to me for some reason. Unfortunately, I moved to Austin simultaneously with him changing his practice. I had intended to fly once per year to LA to see him but now that his practice has substantially changed, I must find someone here to look after me. DARN!!!

Look somewhere else for an MD

Over charged. No follow up. Ordered tests then never reviewed the finding with me, he had me look at the results via website. Charged $35 just for one question asked.
