The core of my practice philosophy is encouraging everyone to adhere to a healthy lifestyle through a healthy diet and regular exercise.

I am a firm believer of evidence-based and preventive medicine. I have found through my different experiences that Kaiser Permanente is a leader in both.

I have a special interest in pulmonary and sleep disorders.

What My Patients Say

This doctor is thorough and cares about his patients. I appreciate him. - JF

Dr. Bananian was very thorough. He was gentle with my husband, a stroke victim. Also, he was respectful of the previous doctor’s analysis. - MT

Outstanding! - BK

Good doctor. Pays attention to all details, including patient's remarks. Good follow up attitude and eagerness. Appreciate his hard working and professional expertise. - HL

Since I started my insurance with Kaiser Permanente, he has been my doctor, and he is a very nice doctor. He treats me very well, he follows my medical status, and he writes me a letter to follow my condition. - AT

I feel so well cared for by Dr. Bananian! He is gentle, calm, thorough, curious, resourceful and smart....just the manner you need if anything scary develops or you are minimizing your own self-care. - JN

I have been seeing Dr. Bananian for several years. He is one of the kindest and most gentle doctors I have ever known. Yet he is rigorously scientific and is willing to spend adequate time to explain or discuss treatment options. Without a doubt, the best PCP I have had in over 20 years with Kaiser Permanente. - WE

Dr. Bananian was excellent with me at first appointment. He showed deep understanding and was very patient. Good listener and very detailed-oriented. Also made the appropriate referrals. I'm grateful for his kindness and patience. - AE
