28/06/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kambiz Karimi is truly a godsend in the world of addiction rehab. Never have I ever met someone who cares so much about his patients but has the knowledge and experience to truly help someone turn their life around. I have battled with addiction for most of my life and have been in and out of rehab centers and sober-living homes. Until I met Dr. Karimi, I had lost hope in my ability to ever recover from my addiction to opiods (vicodin and percocet--I was taking up to 30 a day). It is a shame that it took me this long to meet this man because I am confident I would have recovered many years ago under his guidance and direction. If you are looking for an extremely intelligent yet personable and caring addiction doctor in Southern California, look no further. I owe my life to Dr. Karimi. Thank you!!!!!!!  Respond

10/06/09 3 3 4 5 I am 47 years old, in all my years I have never had a doctor that took a personal interest in my care. Dr Karimi not only saw me every month but ordered needed tests despite my inability to pay (no insurance). An absolutely wonderful doctor, but experience with office personnel mediocre - my son also a patient, office never returned calls for test results.  Respond

08/12/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Karimi is a very bright talent as a physician. He was helpful and is a very caring person. He takes time with the patients on a personal level, despite the amount of people that are waiting. Overall a great staff, a great and friendly environment, and a pleasant experience  Respond

22/03/08 1 3 5 5 Dr. Karimi is a wonderful doctor. He's very caring and will take the time to answer all your questions. His office, however, is very poorly managed. As someone else posted, they either do not return phone calls or it can take weeks. So, a very poor evaluation goes to the office, a great evaluation goes to the doctor.

28/11/07 1 1 1 2 Dr. Karimi performed lab work on me. At the follow-up appt. he told me that I needed to see my oncologist. I went to see my oncologist who did not have the report of the lab work. I called Dr. Karimi's nurse over and over again (at leat 8 times) to have the labwork faxed to my oncologist. His office has yet to fax this paper to my oncologist and it has been over a month. I even left a message with the office manager who did not return my call. Overall it was a horrible experience.
