Our goal is the help you make the most of your visit with us. We accept self-referrals and physician referrals. To schedule a visit, please call 310-582-6350. We will do our best to ensure your appointment is scheduled in a timely manner.
Please note, the UCLA Vasculitis Program only evaluates adult patients (those 18 years and older). For pediatric patients, please visit UCLA Pediatric Rheumatology.
Your initial visit will be with Dr. Tanaz Kermani, (Director, UCLA Vasculitis Program) in the Division of Rheumatology.
Dr. Kermani will take your medical history, conduct a physical examination and review your records. She will order any additional testing that may be needed to further evaluate your condition. She also will make referrals, depending on your needs, to other specialists in our UCLA Vasculitis Program. These referrals likely will require additional visits to UCLA to meet the other specialists.
Dr. Kermani’s office is in Santa Monica but some of our other specialists are located in Westwood. (See Contact Us for information.)
Since many of our patients travel long distances, we want to do everything possible to help you make the most of your visit with us.
To prepare for your visit, please:
