Garen Derhartunian, MD (above, from left) and Narbeh Tovmassian, MD, recently opened a new internal medicine practice in Glendale, CA. They graduated from RUSM in 2012.

Congratulations to both Narbeh Tovmassian, MD and Garen Derhartunian, MD (both from the RUSM class of 2012). This past November, the pair opened Elevate Health Group, a new internal medicine practice in Glendale, CA—where they both attended elementary, middle, and high school together.

“It’s been a lifelong goal to come back and serve the community that taught us all that we know,” says Dr. Tovmassian. “Ross University School of Medicine gave us that opportunity to do so.”

Dr. Tovmassian completed an internal medicine residency at University of Nevada School of Medicine, Las Vegas; Dr. Derhartunian completed his at NYU Lutheran Medical Center, Brooklyn. Both physicians are board certified.
