Our group is a Center of Excellence in providing personalized, comprehensive, state of the art and compassionate medical services for the promotion of health for the community of the San Fernando Valley. We respect the needs of patients and referring physicians and we emphasize the importance of prompt and continual communication.
The group has been founded by Dr. Munaf Shamji in 2002. Through his excellent care, visionary thinking and his kind and patient-focused personality, he assumed a strong leadership role in the medical community in the San Fernando Valley. His leadership resulted in a substantial expansion of the practice, so that Dr. L. Iri Kupferwasser joined him in 2007, Dr. Menachem Wakslak in 2012 and Dr. Michael Hakimi in 2014.
All of the physicians are highly experienced, board-certified and fellowship trained cardiologists. Drs Shamji and Kupferwasser are also board-certified interventional cardiologists, Dr Hakimi is a board-certified interventional cardiologist as well as an endovascular (peripheral) interventionalist, while Dr. Wakslak is a board-certified electrophysiologist. Our offices are setup to see patients in consultation and follow-up. There is also a diagnostic laboratory which allows onsite evaluations with ECG's, exercise treadmill testing, vascular imaging, echocardiography and nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging. Given our high standards we achieved national accreditation for echocardiography, stress echocardiography and nuclear cardiac imaging. For our patients with ongoing chest pain there is also an EECP lab available. Moreover, the group is also providing noninvasive CT-coronary angiogram services. The physicians in this group are affiliated with major medical centers such as Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as well as with local community hospitals (Valley Presbyterian Hospital, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, Providence Tarzana Medical Center).
