Dr. Phillip Musikanth is known for his commitment and compassion for diagnosing and treating serious, life-threatening medical conditions. After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Virology and his medical degree in 1985, Dr. Musikanth dedicated his early medical career to caring for impoverished people living in South African shanty towns.
Upon completing his residency at LA County USC Medical Center in 1993, Dr. Musikanth devoted himself to going beyond traditional medicine by utilizing integrative, science-based treatments that would help enhance overall patient outcomes from serious medical conditions – and in many cases reversing the advancement of serious medical conditions.
Now the Director at Seraph Medical, Dr Musikanth works in close collaboration with the team of medical and scientific experts at Seraph to examine, evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients. Dr. Musikanth reviews the case of each and every patient, drawing on consultants and research to formulate and oversee personalized treatment plans.
Dr. Musikanth is a key opinion leader in the treatment of HIV and AIDS treatment. Through this work at Seraph, he draws on resources to work towards pioneering treatment protocols that will not only treat disease and chronic medical conditions, but also help strengthen and bolster a patient’s own immune system.
He has played a principal role in various clinical trials for new HIV treatments and has also served as a sub-investigator in many other studies. Dr. Musikanth served on the board for AIDS for several years, before the organization merged with the Sierra Project and became the Alliance for Housing and Healing. Today, he serves the group as an advisor on its Medical Advisory committee.
Dr. Musikanth has been recognized by his peers and patients as a top medical doctor in the Los Angeles community. He was honored with the prestigious Angels Amidst Award from the City of Westwood for his service, his humanity, and for going well beyond the norm in his efforts to serve his patients and his community. His compassion and dedication were also recognized when he was chosen to be one of America’s Compassionate Doctors – an honor awarded by patients to less than 3% of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians.
Dr. Musikanth is currently on staff at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and Olympia Medical Center.
