He faces charges of felony criminal threats and is expected in court on Monday morning. His bail was set at $50,000.
Khadavi - who has treated stars including Scott Disick, David Hasselhoff and Lance Bass - was purportedly recorded on surveillance video threatening the man in the lobby of their plush West Hollywood condo complex on July 7.
'I'll f**k you up, f**king f****t!' a man - reported to be Khadavi - is heard yelling in the footage, which was obtained by TMZ last week.

The incident comes four years after the LA dermatologist was accused of threatening to kill Million Dollar Listing star Matt Altman and hurling anti-Semitic abuse at him.
In footage of the incident earlier this month, the man is seen approaching the concierge and ranting about the 'f**king f****t'.
'I'll shoot you, I don't give a f**k... Nobody tells me what to do,' the man is then heard yelling, as a concierge looks on helplessly.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
The foul-mouthed tirade goes on for more than a minute before the man taunts: 'I'll shoot you in the f**king face, f**king f****t!'
'I'll blow your f**king head off!' he subsequently states.
The neighbor filed a restraining order against Khadavi, saying he 'fears for his life'.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, the concierge allegedly claimed that Khadavi 'showed him a handgun he was carrying [while leaving the condo complex]' around two months ago.
The celebrity dermatologist did not respond to TMZ's request for comment and he has not addressed the controversy on his Instagram page.

Back in 2016, real estate agent Altman obtained a restraining order against Khadavi for making 'anti-Semitic death threats' and threatening him in person and over the phone.
Altman claimed in documents, seen by TMZ at the time, that Khadavi approached him at a real estate event.
When Altman asked him to leave because it was a private event, Khadavi allegedly told him he 'hated all Jews' and threatened to kill him.
The documents also claimed Altman had been receiving racist and homophobic phone calls from Khadavi for years.
In May, Khadavi said he was selling his 21,000-square-foot Bel-Air home for $87,777,777 - one of the highest price tags in the area in recent months (pictured above)
The doctor stated that he paid $16 million for the property in 2013 before spending around $30 million and the better part of a decade renovating and decorating the pad
Dubbed Palazzo di Vista, the property now boasts seven bedrooms as well as unique features including an NFT gallery, DJ booth, light show, outdoor tequila bar and car museum

Khadavi said he treated the design process in the same way he treats clients at his dermatology clinic, stating: 'When I do injectables in people's faces...I always
