    • Bio:
    • Dr. Heydarian completed his internship, residency and chief residency at CHKD before heading to Children's Hospital Los Angeles for a fellowship in pediatric hospital medicine. After his medical training was complete, Dr. Heydarian desired a return to Virginia to serve the wonderful patients he had come to know in Hampton Roads.

      He feels that working at CHKD affords him the opportunity to not only be a member of a hospital dedicated to providing excellent patient care but also to play an active role in medical education, palliative care and research.
