About Amelinda Zavaro-Khanjian, DO, BS

Family medicine became my passion as I realized I wanted to know the answer to all the common and uncommon medical questions that arise in everyone's household, in every community, and in every family. I wanted the knowledge and skill set to be able to treat everyone in the family, from babies to great-grandparents. I believe that patient education, along with the physician-patient relationship, are the key components to improving health outcomes by inviting compliance and preventing undesirable complications. In this way, physicians can help patients control their disease and get their healthy lives back, encouraging independence through education. In addition, diagnosis is only the beginning of the journey, because treating each patient requires an individualized plan. My husband and I both grew up and have our extended families here in San Diego, as part of the Middle Eastern community. In my free time, I like to read, swim, travel, try different foods, and practice yoga.

Dr. Zavarro is so kind and gives excellent care and really listens to her patients . You can tell how much she cares about each of her patients and she focuses on the person as a whole. She even remembered my daughter had been sick and she asked how she was doing. She is one of the best doctors I have had and I would absolutely recommend her to others.

I scheduled an appointment to meet with Dr. Zavaro-Khanjian as I was in search of a new PCP. She made feel welcomed and valued while reviewing my records with me, answering any questions I had, etc. I like that Dr Khanjian was proactive in offering to meet with me in about a month to review my mammogram, colonoscopy and any lab results with me in person.
