The MD, PhD Is In

Always at your Service


Dr. Margaret Aranda is a Keck USC and Stanford-trained doctor and former Interim Chief of Anesthesiology at the Philadelphia Veterans Administration. She devoted her life to academic medicine, teaching medical students, interns, residents and Fellows of anesthesiology and critical care.

She held leadership positions as a volunteer medical administrator since President of the Sepulveda Veterans Administration while undergraduate at California State University, Northridge. During internship and residency, she served as Vice President of the House Officers Association at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.

She honors Stanford as her favorite time period of medical education and still encourages all to seek help at the Stanford Pain Clinic. To that end, here is Dr. Sean Mackey on an  assessment of the important National Pain Strategy.

After serving as Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center in the departments of anesthesiology, traumatology and radiology, Dr. Aranda moved to Los Angeles to be with her beloved father, rocket scientist Salvador M. Aranda. He was dying from Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Aranda served as a Caregiver for her father until she and her daughter were hit by a lady who was distracted away from driving. Their Ford Expedition was spun in a circle after being hit at about 90 mph. She suffered a traumatic brain injury, vertebral artery dissection, dysautonomia and fierce disability. She was unable to attend to her father for the last six months of his life. But she carried his memory in all her writings.

Her first book was written while severely brain injured. She was taken to the door of heaven and feels she had a choice to either go through that door or stay on earth. She pleaded to stay to be a mother to her young daughter. Book #2 is a succinct Workbook style: 10 Lessons for 10 Days of truly ‘believing’ God. Books #3 and #4 are for her daughter, Little Missy Two-Shoes who likes ladybugs and loves to go to school Book #5 is a comprehensive and sometimes funny medical guide on growing up from a girl to a woman.

Now bed-ridden for over 10 years, Dr. Aranda is a 5-time author, blogger, and an expert in social media, Twitter and Pinterest. She promotes other authors and continues to contribute publications to her best ability.

Noted for her grand smile and timeless aging, she helps you to bring immunonutrition, smiles, and inner beauty into your existence.

She likes beauty ‘from the inside, out.’ That’s what she wants for you.
