Professional Statement
Daniel Ganjian M.D. was only six years old when he knew that he wanted to help people through science. He received a Bachelor's degree with highest honors from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a medical degree from the University of California, Irvine. He completed training in Pediatrics with an emphasis in obesity at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Maria Fareri Children's Hospital in New York.

The patient comments that show up most often for Dr. Ganjian are “very caring” and “listens”. He states that what he loves most about his practice is: “As a pediatrician, I love being able to decipher what is wrong with babies without them telling me. I am a detective and mind reader.” He makes certain that each patient leaves their office visit with a personalized prescription for good health.

He has a special interest in fighting childhood obesity with his pediatric expertise and as a certified personal trainer. During every sick or well visit in his practice in Santa Monica, he evaluates patients for risk of obesity and diabetes. He also works with local schools speaking to teenagers to encourage them to take control of their physical health. Through Providence St. Joseph Health Southern California’s wellness program, Dr. Ganjian has also been found in the aisles of local grocery stores educating shoppers on making healthier choices.

Dr. Ganjian is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society; a designation given to just 10 percent of American physicians.
