07/10/13 1 1 1 3 Dr. Konialian is a good doctor but, I changed doctors mainly because of his horrible, unorganized, rude, confused and disrespectful office manager. She does not listen to a word you are saying and is messing everything up all the time. Woman go to see him because they are struggling with having a child. This should be a place were you are treated with kindness not from a short tempered front office. Everyone tells you something different and she will charge you for things that were never done and is only wanting to get as much money out of you before checking with insurance first. Dr. Konialian needs to address this issue as I am not the only patient that has had this experience and does not return. I will not be returning to this office and am happy to know find a doctor just as good that has people working for them that are kind and patient. When I called to ask for my file to be sent to me that gave me a hard time about it refused to mail it to me or fax it to me.

20/04/11 4 4 5 5 Dr. K is the best RE one could ever hope for. He's sweet, caring and a big teddy bear. He offered some kind words when I was falling apart after hearing bad news. He rejoiced with me after giving me good news. In all, he is a very sympathetic doctor and THAT is the most refreshing of all because I have seen 3 RE's before him and they were all just out to make $. They could care less how I felt. All they did is shove meds inside me like I was a guinea pig! Dr. K informed me of what I was to expect. He finally diagnosed me and I finally knew why I was having trouble getting pregnant. He was candid and straight forward about my results and objective about the plan of action. I love love love this man! Dr. Trites, who shares his office, is another gem! This practice/group is awesome!

23/02/11 1 2 2 5 Both Dr's in this Facility are Amazing & Great! No Doubt about them knowing their great Knowledge. The staff is Horrible to say the Least. No Communication,All they care about is not getting in trouble by the Dr.s. Its ALmost very Clinic style but you just have to Remeber.. your there for the Amazing Dr.s not the Staff. As long as you as a patient stay on top of things & keep on the staff yourself & Remember your there to get pregnant, Avoid your Anger at the staff. Speaking up doesnt help either since you have to deal with the staff throughout your peregnancy, they just treat you more Crappy once they get to know your name & who you are. On a posititve note, Keep in mind you are there to get pregnant! Good luck & many Blessings

28/12/10 4 5 5 5 I am Dr. Konalian's patient for more than 24 years. I had been struggling for years with multi OBGYN problems, a Doctor finally told me about Dr Konalian, I immediately visited him. Within the first couple exams he discovered what was my problem was despite the fact previous doctors didn't. He was my surgeon and OBGYN. I lost all my hopes of having a baby, but Dr. Konalian gave me a miracle. I got pregnant shortly after my surgery. Without Dr Konalian I would not have my beautiful brillant kids.. my treasure. Now I have my two MIRACLE kids, a 22 year old beautiful daughter and a 20 year old wonderful son. Dr Konalian is extremely caring and concerned about my well being. Dr Konalian is a true blessing from God. He gave me joy and I feel complete thanks to God and this wonderful and educated man. Thanks to him I have my heart's desire. Dr Konalian is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!  Respond

05/04/10 1 3 4 4 Please allowme to disagree with the last sentence. I was his pt for more than 2 years, have had a lot of procedures done by him, including IVFs, got pregnant accidantelly, went to the office for a blood test, the "Dr" never showed an emotion after he was informed of the news. Very immoral/unethical, never congradulated. so, DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR, SEE ANOTHER DR, that would not pretend to be compassionate and will not look at you as $$$.  Respond

18/07/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Konialian has been my doctor for 20 years. I adore him. He is the reason that I have two beautiful sons. He is a brilliant diagnostician and his bedside manner is one of compassion and understanding. I have referred an enormous amount of women to his office over the years and they all now have beautiful children of their own and feel the same way that I do about him. He is your answer.  Respond

10/07/08 5 4 5 5 I went to see him after I miscarried the first time, and we were trying to get pregnant again. I found out I was pregnant 2 days before my appointment with him. So, he had to change gears at our appointment since infertility was not the issue anymore. He took about 30 minutes to explain to me the causes, reasons, etc. for a miscarriage. He then explained to me what the process was going to be like in following up with my second pregnancy. When he realized that I was very nervous, he started talking about what I do, etc., which automatically put me at ease. He had to do an ultrasound a few weeks later, and I was very nervous at having a male doctor do the test, etc. However, I was totally caught off guard at how friendly he was during the exam. I had to go back for a second ultrasound, and again, he was great, and I felt like I could talk to him about anything. Also, his staff is very professional and they were very prompt in reporting test results, etc. I would highly recommend this facility.  Respond

27/06/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Konialian is THE best, most knowledgeable and caring OBGYN I have ever seen. I've been his patient for 13 years and I have to say I feel 100% confident and safe every time I leave the office or with any procedure done throughout the years. Cannot thank him enough for all his genuine advices and I cannot imagine myself going to any other OBGYN! Yes he is an extremely busy physician, but once you are in for any reason, he dedicates his time fully and is a great listener.

28/05/08 2 3 2 4 The IVF Coordinator is a strange woman and she's very unorganized. The DR is always in a hurry. You better have all your questions ready (maybe written on a paper) to ask him very quickly; otherwise, he just leaves the room and the staff doesn't even follow up. The IVF Coordinator also messed up on couple of steps. The just want to get your money; they don't care a/b patients' feelings, and they don't clearly give you statistics on IVF failure or success.  Respond

17/10/06 4 5 5 Dr Konialian is one of the best doctors that i have ever been to, in any field. He is brilliant AND compassionate -- a rare combo for doctors, it seems. He is my regular OB/GYN and also performed a myomectomy (uterine fibroid removal). He patiently explained everything about the surgery beforehand and answered all my questions until i was not even scared, and then followed through very thoroughly afterwards. I have had a full recovery. Can't recommend him highly enough!!

19/09/06 5 5 5 wow! words can not describe Dr. Konialian he has been my surgeon ever since I was 15 years old and now I am 18 years old there has not been a single time that I have walked out of his office disappointed. Therefore I will reccomend everyone to be Dr. Konialians patient without a doubt. He has a very friendly staff especially Lena. The Northridge Surgery center was a great place too excellent staff and atmosphere.But, overall Dr. Konialian has a lot of patience and will never treat his patients without care. He is one of the most knowlegeable Doctors out there! THANK YOU DR. KONIALIAN !

26/06/06 5 5 5 This doctor is the best doctor I have ever been to. His impeccable bedside manner and knowledge are refreshing in an age where doctors tend to rush on to the next patient. Not only is he a competent doctor, I feel he genuinely cares for all of his patients and treats them like family.  Respond
