Meet Cyrus Rangan, MD

My name is Dr. Cyrus Rangan. I'm a pediatrician and a medical toxicologist, and i'm one of the assistant medical directors at the California Poison and Control System. At Poison Control across the country, we receive approximately 3 million calls per year regarding poisons that occur at the home or at the work place. We specialize in speaking to you about the poisoning that may have taken place, whether it's in your child or an adult who may be in the household. We can give you the best advice, the most updated advice, based on the most recent research about what to do in the case of a poisoning. At Poison Control, as a result of calling us, we are able to keep almost 70% of all the calls that come in to our call centers at home; not requiring a visit to the emergency department. That reduces the strain in our emergency departments and reduce healthcare cost and make sure that people receive the optimal care for the most important medical issues. I am the father of 2 young boys, age 7 and 4, and we love to do Kung Fu.
