Expert Team

The Fatty Liver Program brings together physicians, researchers and specialists from different disciplines to give patients the benefit of several perspectives working as one unit, as well as access to the most advanced treatment options available.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
