As trained internists, Dr. Payum Abdarbashi and Dr. Dilip Anmangandla of Pacific MD in Woodland Hills and Agoura Hills, California, know what to look for and what to monitor to prevent small issues from becoming larger problems, and, more importantly, how to avoid health risks all together.

But common sense dictates that the work done on the preventive end of healthcare pays off in innumerable ways when it comes to your health and happiness down the road. The effectiveness of preventive care also depends highly on you and how well you follow your doctor’s recommendations.
