Dr. Talar Tejirian, better known as Dr. T, is a board-certified general surgeon practicing in Los Angeles for more than ten years. She graduated summa cum laude and with college honors from UCLA with a double major in psychology and neuroscience. She received her medical degree from the University of San Francisco, California (UCSF) which ranks in the top five medical schools in the United States. She completed six years of general surgical residency and fellowship training and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Currently she dedicates her professional time to treating patients with a variety of surgical problems, training future generations of surgeons and performing research that has been published in peer-reviewed medical journals such as the Journal of the American College of Surgeons and the Journal of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
Dr. Tejirian is a leading expert on anorectal problems. With her unique focus of patient-centered care that encourages lifestyle changes and integrates natural and medical treatments, Dr. T has led thousands of patients who have suffered for years toward recovery. While about 75 percent of the U.S. population suffers from anal problems at some point in their life, a large number of them go without treatment and choose to suffer in silence, embarrassed to seek help. That’s why Dr. T has made it her mission to educate both patients and other physicians about this neglected part of the body. Now she wants that education and information to extend beyond the exam room through BootyMD.com.
When she is not busy taking care of patients, Dr. T is a dedicated wife and mother to her three young children. You will often find her driving a minivan, taking her children to playdates and birthday parties or helping their school’s nutrition committee improve the quality of food offerings for students.
