Dr. Shant Vartanian is a vascular surgeon who cares for patients with aneurysms, carotid artery disease, peripheral artery disease and other vascular conditions.

In his research, Vartanian studies endovascular treatments for peripheral artery disease (less invasive procedures for narrowed arteries that have reduced blood flow to the limbs). His goal is to help both doctors and patients make informed decisions about treatment options.

Vartanian earned his medical degree at Saint Louis University. He completed a general surgery residency at UCSF and spent two years in the Laboratory for Accelerated Vascular Research, focusing on the important role of notch signaling (neighboring cells sending signals that impact how tissues develop) in the functional form that embryonic blood vessels ultimately take. He also completed a fellowship in vascular and endovascular surgery at UCSF.

    I waited four months for them to look at my records before deciding to see me. Then they did and doctor would not even give me the time of day. Would not let me complete my sentence about my right leg issues which I already know I have because I saw a vascular surgeon in Maryland week before and did a venogram. Why bother stringing me along for four months have me drive two hours each way just to dismiss me straight off the bat? Seriously arrogant dismissive invalidating condescending. It is also like basic objective diagnoses are not even believed and questioned. Doctor questioned my diagnosis as if I was lying.

    Although patient has been a client of this office for years some providers fail to recall he is hearingimpraired and intellectually impaired so don't assure that he hears and understands what they are saying.
