As a leading outpatient surgery clinic in Southern California, La Peer Health Systems boasts over 50 of the best physicians across fourteen medical departments. The new doctors joining the La Peer Health Systems’ team are Dr. Benjamin Basseri and Dr. Marc D. Makhani, both gastroenterologists.

Dr. Basseri specializes in the evaluation and management of difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), indigestion (dyspepsia), abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and colorectal cancer screening.

After completing his residency, Dr. Makhani pursued his fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia before returning to Los Angeles to start his practice. He continues to maintain an active role in the leading national GI medical societies, including the American College of Gastroenterology and American Gastroenterological Association.
