Why Dr. Ghalichi?

Dr. Ghalichi sees a limited number of patients and is focused on your experience. You spend most of your time with him and not in the waiting room. You get a visit that is not rushed. You get a doctor that will actually listen to you instead of typing on the keyboard. You will see Dr. Ghalichi and not a nurse-practitioner, physician-assistant, or doctor-in-training. You can have your blood drawn while you’re being seen. You get easy access to Dr. Ghalichi including his direct email and will not have to wait long for a new appointment. You have the option for telemedicine services to reduce your travel time when an in-person visit is not required.

You get world-class care. Dr. Ghalichi is currently on staff with Cedars-Sinai as a cardiologist, consistently ranked among the top hospitals in the nation for cardiology care. Dr. Ghalichi also has experience from his time at the Texas Heart Institute, which was ranked in the top 10 for cardiology care for 20 consecutive years. He was a clinical instructor at the Baylor College of Medicine and Director of Echocardiography for Kelsey-Seybold’s 20 clinics in Houston before opening his practice in Los Angeles. With Dr. Ghalichi as your physician and advocate, you will have access to the latest innovations in cardiac testing, procedures, and therapies.


Please read how fees work below.

Dr. Ghalichi is out-of-network with private insurance companies to remove the overhead and baggage that is a barrier to the optimal care that he would like to deliver. In this way he can offer longer in-depth patient visits and an integrative approach to cardiology and prevention that requires time. The fee for the visit will be collected at the time of service.

For insurance plans with out-of-network benefits (typically PPO or POS plans), Dr. Ghalichi can order labs and imaging tests you need to be performed in-network in the same building as his office at places such as Cedars-Sinai or Quest Diagnostics.

If you do not have insurance, Dr. Ghalichi can have labs and imaging testing performed at reasonable rates.
