“First and foremost Dr. Larian deserves the 6th star if they only give us five to choose from. I’ve never met a doctor that cares so much for his patients. I have been going to see Doc for prob about 8 years now off and on. I am a musician and vocalist so having an ENT you trust is something very important for someone like myself. About 4 years ago I had an accident where I ruptured a blood vessel right near my vocal chord area. I lost my speaking voice for 3 months and my singing voice for almost 2 years. Through speech therapy and vocal therapy Dr Larian stayed with me every step of the way. As a singer, losing your voice is probably one of the most mentally challenging things to go through. He was always there for me whether it being available outside the office or even emergency visits. He went out of his way to make sure I could continue my therapy when I thought I had exhausted all options. He simply has one of the biggest hearts out there. Today I am able to belt out as I did in the past and I will never forget what he did for me. It goes without saying that I am unbelievably thankful and indebted to his kindness. This recommendation is a heartfelt one…Thanks Doc!”

“The most amazing talented professional and caring physician I have ever met! And as a healthcare professional myself I know a talented physician when I meet one. It is a privilege to be a patient of Dr. Larian. I traveled from Northern California to receive care from Dr. Larian and I am so glad that I did. My parotidectomy was successful and I felt cared for through the entire journey. His office team attended to all of our needs as out of town clients and supported my husband and I every step of the way. I wish I could give you a million stars!”

-Andrea C

“I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Larian. By the time my search for a surgeon led me to him, nearly five years had passed since the discovery of a benign tumor in my parotid gland. By then, the tumor had engulfed nearly the entire lower right side of my face. Because of the location of the tumor, even when it was small, removal was considered to pose a significant risk of facial paralysis. My fear of such an outcome kept me looking for a surgeon that I felt confident could remove the tumor with the least amount of damage to my facial nerve. From my initial contact with Dr. Larian and his staff I knew I had come to the right place. I felt like I was being welcomed into a family–a family of world-class experts in the arts of medical care and emotional care. It was truly an astounding experience. There is no paralysis or weakness in my face. There was none immediately post-operatively and there is none now, more seventeen months after the procedure. I had to travel across the country for the surgery, but it was worth it. I would do it again, without hesitation.”

“Dr. Babak Larian and his team are the most professional and competent diagnosticians and surgeons, they are phenomena.

As a health care provider myself I was very picky and chose to go and meet with several ENT and plastic sergeants, and now I can tell that I had made the best decision in my life by choosing Dr. Babak and Dr. Azizzadeh. I had parotid gland tumor for over a year, after doing the MRI Dr. Babak recommended needle aspiration biopsy which was performed painless after spending 30 minutes with Him. This can tell a lot about the 30 minutes we spent together, explaining my situation, giving me all the needed time, making me feel very comfortable and confident that I want him to do the surgery. After 48 hours from the biopsy he called me personally to tell its benign one, so afterwords we started to be prepared for the procedure. We met one week prior to the procedure and he explained the incision type, recovery period, what to expect and how long the procedure will take. He had such a positive influence on me by taking away all the fear and doubts regarding injuring the facial nerve and how he and his team will monitor the nerve and the branches during the 5 hour procedure. I had my surgery on Sept 10 th, before the procedure he came just to say everything will be ok, by that time I was kind of nervous so I looked into his eyes and told that I trust him and that’s why I chose him, he just promised with confident that everything will be just fine! And he had his words by all mean. Surgery was performed at La Peer Health Systems, very nice, clean, organized and beyond any expectations out patient surgical center. The minute I woke up from the general anesthesia I was able to smile normally, shake my shoulders, move my neck, and blinking my eyes just like before the procedure.

I went home the same day, with minimum pain, and never had the feeling that I just went out of a surgery. He called me that night to check on me, which gave me a feeling of how much he care about patients. What amaze me that Dr. Babak was very accurate and right with every single word he said about the procedure and the recovery period. So it was a package of successful patient, Dr. Relationship and care starting from his awesome office financial coordinators specially Shelly !

In a week I was back to my normal life and work schedule! And it’s been already 25 days and the wound is unnoticeable.

I will defiantly recommend Dr. Babak as he is one of a kind human and Dr.”

-Vahe H

“There aren’t enough words. He is incredible. Well worth the travel time. Very, very knowledgeable, welcoming and reassuring. He came into the room and was so friendly, but didn’t do as other doctors normally do and spend the appointment time reading my results/health history. He walked into the room already knowing my calcium and PTH levels and it was the first time we had met. Talk about impressed! I knew immediately I was in the right hands with my health. I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders just hearing him talk. I cannot say enough great things about him.”

“He even made time to do an additional procedure with me (ultrasound) to make me more comfortable and knowing I was coming from out of town. He even came back into the room at the end of the visit when my husband said he had a question also. It was an AMAZING experience.”

“He took time to even draw me a picture of the parathyroid glands and explained all the symptoms the disease can cause. He was awesome!”

“I can’t say enough about Dr. Larian; I am so grateful to have found him. He is amazing at what he does and is so incredibly kind. He makes you feel at ease and REALLY cares about you. He performed surgery along with Dr. Azzizadeh on my jaw and you cannot even tell! There are no visible scars! I have recommended him to my family members as he is the best. I have never left a review online but I felt compelled to because he is so wonderful. Everyone who works there is fantastic and they go above and beyond to help you. I can’t express enough how highly I recommend Dr. Larian!”

“Just LOVE the man… professional fantastic and a gentleman who knows his profession VERY well.”

“After going to several doctors for my Vertigo, Dr. Larian was the most reassuring and professional doctor. He had such a very genuine and comforting way about him. He did a great job informing me about my condition. What a great personality for a doctor. I also appreciated the friendly welcome when I came into the office. Very clean and beautiful environment. I highly recommend Dr. Larian.”

“I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about your entire office. Please don’t change a thing. I never thought I would look forward to another doctor visit or possible surgery, but I feel so comfortable with Dr. Larian, I am looking forward to a diagnosis and his help in getting my life back. You guys are awesome!!!!!!!”

“I am very satisfied with Dr.Larian and his staff I honestly can’t think of anything that would need to change or improve since everything is already top notch!”

“I believe the service that Dr. Larian and staff provide is one of a kind. Dr. Larian makes you feel that you’re the most important one there.”

“I decided to postpone after consulting my husband/sleeping partner, other family members, and my Internist, who all agreed that my condition was still mild, would probably worsen with age, at which point I would definitely want to select Dr.Larian to be my surgeon”

“Dr.Larian is not your average Dr. He makes you feel like you’re the only patient there.”

“Dr.Larian is an amazing soul!”

“Best Doctor I’ve had! I’m so glad I met him!”

“I’m a little more than a year out of parathyroid surgery. BLESS YOU Dr. Larian! My fatigue took a full year to balance but now I have the energy a 20 something should have to tackle school and my life. You listened to me and gave me a chance. I am still grateful to this day. Please never stop treating patients with the respect you give us. I truly feel if someone is having symptoms, there may be something wrong. Take care.”

“Thanks so much for taking such care of my ears. I apologize if I was being too much of a baby. I can’t believe how much better I hear. My ears do not pop anymore and I can’t hear the echo… You are the best.”

“I have seen a lot of doctors over the years, this experience was exceptional. I followed Dr. Larian’s advice and I am already feeling better.”

“Wonderful doctor, felt extremely comfortable.”

“Dr. Larian was kind, knowledgeable and professional.”

“Very wise and helpful doctor!”

“Amazing. Dr. Larian made me feel very comfortable about the surgery.”

“Dr. Larian is a true friend and professional physician.”

“I traveled from Washington DC to Los Angeles to have Dr. Larian perform my recent parathyroidectomy. I struggled unsuccessfully for months to find a local surgeon who could diagnose my hyperparathyroidism, and was fortunate enough to learn about Dr. Larian while doing my own research. Few doctors are knowledgeable about parathyroid disease, even fewer can perform the surgery successfully using minimally invasive procedures. After years of vague symptoms and months of severe symptoms, just days after surgery I feel better than I have in such a long time. Dr. Larian’s staff made it so easy to consult with him, first over the phone reviewing my records and within a very short time scheduling my procedure. All I had to do was make hotel and plane reservations, they took care of everything else regarding scheduling and insurance matters. There is no doubt that traveling to have Dr. Larian perform my surgery was the best decision as it proved to be a little trickier than anticipated, but in the skilled hands of Dr. Larian I’m confident that the correct parathyroid gland was removed safely and completely, under local anesthesia and with minimal scarring. I felt better upon waking from the procedure. Throughout my contact with Dr. Larian on the phone and in person, it was clear that he genuinely cares about his patients, even though we had not met until the day before my surgery. After my procedure he visited my family in the waiting room multiple times and answered their questions, and personally called to check on me over the weekend after my procedure. Amazing, genuine care and clearly the leading expert in his field. I can’t thank Dr. Larian and his entire staff enough for listening when other doctors would not, and for performing a minimally invasive procedure when others could not. I have my life back, pain and symptom-free, and am so grateful to have found him. Don’t hesitate to travel to have Dr. Larian as your physician.”

“Dr. Larian is an amazing surgeon who saved my career and quality of life in 2014. My outcome following parotidectomy was far better than I expected. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Larian. He is a brilliant surgeon who has an excellent bedside manner. He is warm and compassionate and really listens to his patients. He is intelligent and confident without being arrogant. His office is beautiful and I could not have been happier with his team at the surgery center.
I have minimal scarring, no dent, and no permanent sensation changes. There was no weakness or paralysis. Pain following surgery was minimal and easily managed.

Why am I so impressed with Dr. Larian? I had a parotid tumor. It was my second tumor within a five year period so I was already very aware of the risks of the surgery. The first surgery at a well known private university hospital left me with a dent where the parotid gland was removed, temporary weakness to my mouth, permanent sensation changes to my jaw and ear, and 5 months of paralysis to my bottom lip. After an MRI confirmed my suspicions of a second tumor on the other side, I returned to the surgeon who performed the first parotidectomy. He said the location of the tumor was far more complicated than the first one. I was given a poor prognosis. He said I needed to prepare myself for 18 months of facial paralysis IF the main branch of the nerve was intact. As a pediatric speech-language pathologist, that outcome would’ve destroyed my career. My devastation regarding that poor prognosis drove my quest to find the best surgeon in southern CA. I did my research and am so thankful I found Dr. Larian. I cannot recommend him more highly to anyone requiring a parotidectomy or other head/neck surgeries within his expertise.”

-Kelli W.

“I have been really impressed with the service I have received from Dr. Larian’s office. I was so relieved to have such a caring doctor look after me. I came to this location from out of town because the doctor I saw in my hometown made me feel like they weren’t confident in what they were doing. After speaking to Dr. Larian, I knew I was in good hands. I notified Dr. Larian of a problem that came up and he spoke to me personally on the phone, which a lot of doctors won’t do. The staff is very accommodating and friendly as well.”


“Dr. Larian is everything anyone facing head/neck surgery could want….he is highly skilled, compassionate, kind, and very well educated. Most definitely one of the best doctors in the country.”


“Dr. Larian is one of the best physicians in Los Angeles — and I’ve seen many! He’s kind, compassionate, really listening to what you tell him. His entire office staff is approachable and friendly. I have a very difficult medical case, and he’s been very patient with my ongoing medical needs. Truly one of the best!”

-Tara K

“Very professional and efficient. Dr Larian is by far the best doctor I’ve met through my ordeal. Using a procedue others didn’t use or even know of he restored my ability to breath to what I feel is its maximum. That has increased my quality of life to a level I was not sure was attainable. Thank you so much Dr. Larian.”

-Daniel B

“Our experience at the Center for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery was better than anything we could imagine. Already taking a 3 year old for a surgery is a anxiety inducing experience. Both my wife and I were very stressed to begin with. As soon as we arrived at the Center we were treated with compassion, until the moment we left. I would highly recommend, this surgery center to anyone who is in need of a procedure. My hats are off to Dr. Larian and his entire staff. They are a class act.”

-Arya R

-Steven H

“I have had a phenomenal experience with the office & Dr. Larian. He was adamant about getting to the bottom of what was causing my health issues & he did it. He was understanding and went through every lab in detail as if I’m a colleague discussing the issue at hand. No question he is the best in the industry.”

-Vartui C

“Dr. Larian is an excellent physician. He really takes the time to listen to your concerns and always provides thoughtful feedback. Dr. Larian is kind, empathetic, and has an excellent bedside manner and truly makes you feel as though you are of utmost importance during your visit with him.”

-Grace S

“Dr. Larian is a master of his craft. I am a retired professional Mixed Martial Artist and when I SEVERELY deviated my septum during a training session, Dr. Larian saved my nose. I can now breathe perfectly through both nostrils, and my nose looks just like it did before the injury. In another incident I was suffering from a terrible case of vertigo, and I had been to several doctors none of whom were any help. Dr. Larian immediately diagnosed me correctly with Benign Positional Vertigo and he had me back on my feet within minutes. He is a knowledgeable, experienced, professional physician. Aside from his expert medical skill, he also has the best bedside manner of any doctor I’ve ever been to. It is obvious that he truly cares about his patients and their well being. If you are looking for an ENT surgeon, look no further than Dr. Babak Larian. He is without question one of the best. Thank you Dr. Larian!”

“He’s amazing, answered all my questions with such confidence and immediacy.”

Dear Dr Larian,

Angie and all the kind assistants at the desk: Thank you so much for your extraordinary care in my health & well-being. Nothing is more important than my voice.

However, you & your staff have done more for me than any other medical staff I have encountered. What a relief you all have been. All of you are great to work with. I am feeling much better in so many ways, and much of it is owed to all of you. Thank you! If every doctor’s office were like this, the world would be a much healthier place.

There is no gift more precious than one’s health. Happiness must rest upon that ground, alight with pain, no pleasure can be found. No joy in love or beauty, words or wealth. Know that I am grateful for your skill, your sensitivity and dedication. Out of strength, my mother dreaded all sensation until your healing touch restored her will.

Dear Dr Larian, I do not know how to thank you for helping my mom so quickly. I wish you endless happiness. May the stars be yours for the taking.

– Warmly, Hayli 03/04

– Thank you so much for all your help, Sincerely, Nicole

Dr Larian,

when we came to your office last week both my wife & I were very upset & nervous. When you met with us, you immediately put us at ease by taking the time to explain everything to us in detail. You were very aware of our feelings & showed us such patience, warmth & understanding. When we left your office the relief we felt was enormous as we knew we had a wonderful & caring doctor taking care of us. Thank you, doctor, for all you have to offer, you are a wonderful gift to your patients.

– Fondly, Mark & Shirley

– Richard & Sunny

Dear Dr Larian,

I want to express my deepest appreciation for your kindness, genuine caring and of course your expertise when you performed my recent surgery. As one who has limited experience with the medical profession, I didn’t know what to expect. I felt totally “held” by you & your team and could relax, knowing you were indeed, the best and would ensure an optimal outcome. All I can say is I will sing your praises for a long time. I feel blessed to have found you, deep gratitude for your skill, and graced to be the recipient of such compassionate care.

Please give my best to Shaye & Dr Azizzadeh too. He will be seeing me in a few years or two~J

– Much love, Diane 07/08

I’m home in Hawaii after having minimally-invasive parathyroid surgery with Dr. Babak Larian. What a positive experience. Dr. Larian is a true healer — an elegant surgeon, warm and caring person, simply the best. I was treated like an old friend, from the extraordinary care of the staff beforehand (Shelly! Evelina!) to the staff at the Center and at La Peer. Not to mention being able to watch Chaplin films in the waiting room! I cannot praise you all enough…a hearty Mahalo!

I finally felt that it was time for me to go through with rhinoplasty surgery. I just graduated college and my parents and I thought it would be a great time to go ahead with the surgery as I have plenty of time to recover before I have to start working in September.

I am so happy with the results of my rhinoplasty. I have always been unhappy with the size of my nose and I knew it was going to be a challenge to reduce the size of it. I knew I need to go to an expert, and Dr L came highly recommended A family friend had a rhinoplasty surgery with Dr L and had nothing but amazing things to say about him and now has a beautiful nose!

Dr. Larian you rock. I wish you specialized in other parts of the body so you could be my one stop shop 😉

Dr. Larian saved me from an unbearable pain in my sinuses. Not only is he a wonderful doctor, but a great guy. All in all, he is THE best.

Dr. Larian shakes hands, introduces himself, makes eye contact, is patient and explains everything very thoroughly. He met all of my expectations.

I cannot thank you enough for the excellent expert surgery and medical care I received from you. We are all very fortunate to have you to take care of us.

I absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Larian. He was very thorough, gave very good explanations, and answered all of my questions. His bedside manner is impeccable.

Dr. Larian is very confident and honest.

Everything was perfect and I am so thankful that I am Dr. Larian’s patient.

Dr. Larian you’re an incredible doctor and a wonderful human being. You took such great care of my brother during a very painful and uncomfortable time and I’m happy to report that he’s as good as new with no recurrent problems. Thank you! 🙂
