Overview

A native of Los Angeles, Dr. LoPresti received both his medical degree and his Ph.D. in physiology from the University of Southern California. He first joined the Trojan family in 1974 as a biology undergraduate and finished his residency at the LAC+USC Medical Center ten years later. Dr. LoPresti has contributed to over fifty presentations, recently lecturing on a case of an aggressive Papillary Thyroid Cancer arising in the third trimester of pregnancy. In addition, he has had leadership roles in the American Thyroid Association and has been published in numerous journals, abstracts and book chapters.
