Dr. Michael Pakdaman
12 years experience male
I graduated from UCLA studying "Cynbernetics", the study of systems. I completed my medical training at McGill University and then went on to spend a year at Harvard as a research fellow in otology (ear disorders). I then completed two years of residency training in Ear, Nose, and Throat surgery in Texas and am now changing specialties to Radiology. I am here to help answer questions you may have that relate to ENT or general medical questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 37-year-old male asked:
Gall Stones: Fatty liver is a benign condition usually related to diet, however if it worsens it can become a condition called steatohepatitis. Watch your diet and it should improve. Gallstones are typically harmless unless a stone gets caught in a duct. Some people with a long family history of gallbladder problems get the gallbladder removed, but most people have gallstones all their life without problems
A 43-year-old female asked:
Lymphadenopathy: Usually swollen lymph nodes happen in reaction to a cold. If they persist and do not shrink over time after the cold is gone then you need to see your doctor for a possible biopsy.
A 30-year-old male asked:
BPPV: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is caused by abnormal fluid flow in the inner ear. There is a procedure called the Epley Manuver. Many physical therapists can do it and they can even teach you to do it at home if it ever comes back. BE CAREFUL and make sure someone provides you neck support when you do it, or see a physical therapist capable of performing Epley Manurer
