Meet Dr. Zardouz

Dr. Bijan Zardouz has been a specialist in the field of neurology and neurophysiology over the past 30 years. As a young adult, he had a strong passion for mathematics because of his keen interest in solving problems. However, Dr. Zardouz’s other passion was to help people. His uncle was a physician at the time and after shadowing him, he realized that medicine was his destined path since it tied his two interests together.

Dr. Zardouz began his Neurology residency at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, and then completed his senior year of residency at the Wadsworth-UCLA Medical Center in 1983. He attended an extra year of fellowship training in Neurophysiology at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Thereafter, he completed one more year training in Neuromuscular Disorders at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles. Dr. Zardouz began teaching neurophysiology at UCSD on a part-time basis since 1986.

He has been with the following organizations and hospitals:

  • American Academy of Neurology
  • American Association of Neuromuscular and Electro-diagnostic Medicine
  • Coastal Communities Hospital
  • Newport Bay Hospital
  • VA Medical Center in La Jolla

Because of his expertise in neurology, he has been a consultant to other physicians, chiropractors, nurse practitioner, physician assistants, psychologists, physical therapists, hospice and home-care organizations, and nursing homes. Above all, Dr. Zardouz has been a forensic expert in a wide variety of medical-legal cases, and has served as an Agreed Medical Evaluator (AME), Qualified Medical Evaluator (QME), and Independent Medical Examiner (IME). He has the knowledge to analyze medical-legal documents in depth and give the best possible presentation in depositions and trials and he has attended 9th Circuit Court Of Appeal. He has had an eclectic mix of referrals, ranging from claims examiners, attorneys, case managers and at times, judges.

During his spare time, Dr. Zardouz enjoys taking walks, gardening, and spending time with his wife, attending Neurological Conferences and updating himself with New Neurological Information via magazines and internet. Most of all, he enjoys researching his patient’s medical problems more in depth, and if need be, he will consult with other experts in neurology to give his patients the best care possible.
