In addition to taking several six-mile hikes each week with Lucky and Cooper, the doctor enjoys a variety of sports, “but, being from Michigan and growing up playing ice hockey, my heart is always with the Wolverines,” he said.


Dr. Kelman has volunteered as a Clinical Instructor at the Northridge Family Practice Residency Program since 1989. He also donates his time to the Westminster Free Clinic.




Dr. Gina Nalbandian specializes in reconstructive and revisional foot and ankle surgery, foot and ankle trauma, sports medicine, lapiplasty, and limb salvage. Dr. Nalbandian did her residency at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston, which is affiliated with Tufts University. As a resident, she served an academic coordinator and chief resident.


As the newest associate at UFAI, the doctor brings to the staff a lifelong love of sports and a deep passion for helping patients to live active lives.


A resident of Sherman Oaks, Gina continues to volunteer her expertise with the Special Olympics, Happy Feet (providing foot care at homeless shelters), and the Boston Marathon.
