About Peter Pelikan, MD

Triple certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease, Internal Medicine, and Interventional Cardiology, Peter C. D. Pelikan, MD is a New York City native who graduated from The Bronx High School of Science. He majored in biology at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, and he earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Pelikan fell in love with Southern California during his time here, but after completing his internship and residency in internal medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, California, he moved back to the east coast to complete a fellowship in cardiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.  

It was while working on his fellowship on the East Coast, Dr. Pelikan realized how much he missed Southern California, and he could not wait to return to the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center as an assistant professor of medicine and co-director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. In 1989 he left academic medicine to join the Pacific Heart Institute where he has specialized in interventional and consulting cardiology ever since.  

Dr. Pelikan is currently the Medical Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Providence Saint John’s Health Center. His medical interests include Angiography and intervention/Stenting, Coronary and Peripheral, as well as Structural Heart Disease, including MitraClip, TAVR, and Watchman implantation. 

An avid skier and fly-fisher, Dr. Pelikan loves the outdoors. While indoors, he is trying to learn to play the piano. 

The Doctor was right to point and very kind caring and knowledgable. He should teach classes on this type of care ..amazing Doctor

Dr. Pelikan has been my main Cardiologist for 28 years from making the diagnosis which needed a quintuple bypass and all the follow up visits. I do not believe anyone can do any better. This is coming from a board-certified Allergist/Immunologist.
