Preventative Healthcare, the Mind, Body and Beyond
Interview with Vagharshak M. Pilossyan, MD
Dr. Vagharshak Pilossyan is an internal medicine physician. He is a graduate of the Yerevan State Medical University. In Yerevan, he worked as a surgeon at Yerevan’s Mikaelyan Surgery Institute for more than 15 years. During that period, he continued his medical training in Lithuania, where he received training in vascular heart surgery. After finishing the training, he returned back to Yerevan, where he was appointed the chairman of implantable pacemakers at Mikaelyan Surgery Institute. When Dr. Pilossyan came to Los Angeles with his family, he pursued his medical career and has been practicing Internal Medicine for more than 30 years. He has his own practice in Van Nuys, California. Dr. Pilossyan has personally always been interested in the philosophical aspect of life: the connection between the human body, soul and mind. A few years ago, for him it was a discovery to get introduced to Sahaja Yoga culture. In this culture, he found answers to many questions about the human soul, body and mind connection.

Passionate about community education, in 2008, Dr. Sepilian launched the “Your Health” educational TV program aimed at sharing with the community the latest and most important healthcare topics. Since 2008, the show has been making house calls to tens of thousands of viewers helping educate them on preventative care and healthy lifestyles. In 2010, Dr. Sepilian, alongside other civic leaders and the former Mayor of the City of Glendale co-founded the Glendale Health Festival. Dr. Sepilian worked closely with city and state officials and local hospitals to organize this large-scale event with the aim to improve the health of the community. Dr. Sepilian is a strong believer that success and wealth are measured by life’s experiences and human interactions and that true happiness and purpose are achieved by giving. Cherished memories include debates about life and death with Dr. Jack Kevorkian, delivering pens to students in villages in Sri Lanka and teaching chess to orphans in Nepal.
