Hello, my name is Dr. Daniel Nargizian. I have been practicing at Kaiser Permanente for over 10 years. I joined Kaiser Permanente immediately after my residency and have been extremely satisfied to be a part of such an excellent organization.
I was born in Armenia and was 15 years old when my family and I immigrated to the United States. I went to Occidental College to complete my bachelor’s degree in psychobiology. My family was instrumental in encouraging me to pursue my dreams of becoming a physician; without their support, I would not have been able to achieve my goals. I spent four years in Chicago for medical school at Midwestern University, followed by three years in Phoenix, Arizona, where I completed my residency in internal medicine. My residency training was based at two hospitals: Good Samaritan and Veterans Administration medical centers. Both hospitals gave me extensive experience in the field of internal medicine.
I work in the clinic and in urgent care. I love working in the hospital, however I prefer being in the clinic so that I can be available for my patients.
I’m happily married, and my wife and I are blessed with two beautiful girls who have very different personalities. After work, I can’t wait to pick my daughters up from school. I enjoy my time with them. I love to cook because cooking allows me to be creative and provides immediate gratification for the people that I care about. I also exercise and hike regularly, which allows me to burn off those calories—and I encourage my patients to do the same.
