A Los Angeles Social Diary

From Kimye’s OBGYN to Morgan Freeman’s ‘medical guru’ Dr. Soram Khalsa to Steve Tisch’s favorite neurosurgeon, The Hollywood Reporter details nearly 500 doctors used by entertainment executives and actors. If posting requests for referrals on Facebook has gotten you nowhere, this may be the read for you. Alongside the list are related topics ranging from a rating of L.A.’s Emergency Rooms (our vote goes to UCLA) to why L.A. schoolkids are getting sick to a couple ways to beat death altogether. #TruffleNotes: It’s not totally uncommon to house a cryogenic machine these days, at least in LA.
