“I think it's important to make a connection ... to make sure the patient feels comfortable.”

Misagh Karimi, M.D., a physician with two decades' experience, says he chose oncology because it's a fast-paced, constantly-evolving field with many exciting new developments.

Born in Iran, Dr. Karimi immigrated to the U.S. and received a bachelor's degree at University of California, Berkeley. He earned his medical degree at George Washington University and spent nearly a decade at University of California, Irvine, as an intern, resident, physician, researcher and instructor. After two years at Oregon's Knight Cancer Institute, Dr. Karimi returned to Southern California to join the Wilshire Oncology Medical Group, which became City of Hope's Corona facility.

Dr. Karimi is passionate about patient education, appearing frequently at community forums to discuss obesity, the environment and other possible risk factors for cancer.
