    About Me

    Dr. Daneshvar received his B.S. in Physics from UCLA and his medical degree from Wayne State University. He continued his medical training at the LAC+USC Medical Center where he completed his Internal Medicine residency, a one-year specialty training in echocardiography, followed by his Cardiovascular Medicine fellowship. He was elected by his colleagues as Chief Fellow and recognized by the faculty as the Outstanding Fellow of the Year in 2012.

    Dr. Daneshvar enjoys developing the patient-physician relationship and making sure that patients are actively involved in managing their medical conditions. He enjoys practicing all aspects of cardiology including coronary artery disease, valve disease, and preventive care. He sees patients in both the Santa Monica and Westlake Village offices. He is fluent in Farsi.

    When not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his growing family, reading, and photography.
