14/05/13 3 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Kurkjian about two months and have been very pleased with the experience. I find him to be very easy to talk to. I am at a point where Dr. Kurkjian has recommended medication. I am very opposed to the idea of taking meds primarily out of fear. The fact that he is not pushing speaks volumes to me. He is definitely considerate of my sensitivities and I'm appreciative of that.

08/05/13 4 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr Kurkjian now for 2 mos. It was my first time seeing a psychologist for treating my anxiety and depression. I admit that at first of course I was nervous, but during my first introductory session with Dr Kurkjian, I felt at ease and knew that this was my cure/help in getting better and heal. I am not insured but his rates are the most reasonable in the city of San Leandro, San Lorenzo and especially Castro Valley. I am very pleased with my session treatments so far and I'm looking forward to getting the best treatment in healing to be happy and healthy for a better future for me and my family.  Respond

11/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr, Kurkjian has helped me through many problems in the last 14 years. It started 14 years ago with my husband's terminal illness and most recently with my firing from a job I had held for 25 years. He is very honest with always saying what I need to hear. He has helped me to live a enjoyable live instead of being stuck in the negative. The most important thing he has done for me is helped me to feel good about myself  Respond

28/01/13 4 5 5 5 Dr. Kurkjian monitored my mother at a time when she was anxious and was refusing of her medications. He was caring and treated her with respect. He went out of his way to consult with her primary physician while we were in his office to determine the best course of action for her. I would recommend Dr. Kurkjian for those who require a psychologist.

06/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kirkjian is very thoughtful and considerate. With his help I've put my life into perspective thereby reducing mental stress allowing me once again to enjoy living. His method is to not only alleviate symptomatic ailments which can be problematic but treat the entire psychological makeup which will prevent future ailments. His demeanor is light-hearted, stern when the situation calls for it but non threatening. After a couple of visits it's like being treated by a good friend who has your interests at heart, some one you can trust. Thanks, A.J.H.

We have had many enjoyable discussions and I have always felt better and more motivated after having a session with him.

30/06/12 2 1 2 3 He was late and cut visits short; had an unhealthy desire to speak about sex; billed the wrong insurance company; tried to hit me up for full cost after I got all the receipts for deductibles; after the fact he stated the insurance company didn't pay or stopped paying but I never got notice from them. His secretary tried to talk me into paying whole thing out of pocket. He initially said he wouldn't accept me unless I was covered so presumed I was because of all the receipts for deductibles, but I never got notice from my insurance company. He knows my controlling physician who referred me to him and I gave him my insurance company card to copy, so has no excuse. Very fishy.
