Dr. Mehran Recognized by Super Doctors for 8th Consecutive Year!

As many of our patients already know, Dr. Mehran is a singular surgeon. Not only is he incredibly skilled at performing bariatric and general surgeries, but he is charismatic, too! He cares about all of his patients and it is plain for everyone to see.

As a matter of fact, his peers would agree. That’s why we’re proud to announce Dr. Mehran has been recognized on the 2018 Super Doctors® list for Southern California. This marks his 8th year in a row!


For the past 11 years, Super Doctors has been sending out an annual list of exceptional physicians in over 40 medical specialties.

They find the best of the best in each region of the United States and send their findings to local newspapers. This is to recognize the physicians for their noteworthy skills and practices as well as provide the public with knowledge. Potential patients know to whom to go: those providing the best care.


The only way to become recognized by Super Doctors is to be exceptional in your field.

The selection process is rigorous and employs multiple steps. Super Doctors reaches out to medical professionals all over the nation and asks them,

“If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?”

The doctors questioned are not allowed to nominate themselves and Super Doctors has put other fail-safes in place to ensure that there is zero ballot manipulation.

You cannot pay to get on this list.

This selection is as honest as it can get.

The doctors are required to take time to genuinely consider the question, and choose the best in their region in each medical field.

Once candidates are nominated, they are evaluated based on peer recognition and professional achievement. These indicators are

  • Years of experience
  • Hospital appointments
  • Fellowships
  • Professional activities
  • Leadership positions
  • Academic achievements/positions
  • Board certifications
  • Publications, lectures, & presentations
  • Honors and awards
  • Other outstanding achievement

This selection process leaves Super Doctors with a list comprised of the top 5% of physicians in their state or region.
