I made an appointment but was told after I arrived he would not see me because I was under Covered California insurance. I asked how much the visit would be without insurance and was told $95. I said I would pay for the full price of the visit since I was already there. He saw me and eventually refused my payment of the quoted $95 and said he would bill my insurance and let me know what happened. After not receiving word for several weeks I called his billing department and was told I owe $176.00 now since the Doctor bills insurance more than the non-insured. Now I have to pay almost twice as much for a 10 minute office visit in which half the time I spent listening to the Dr. complain about Blue Shield and the new contract offer. A very big two thumbs down for Dr. Andre Yousefia
Dr. Yousefia is the most attentive, caring doctor I have ever had. He actually remembers me and other memebers of my family and asks about them. He spends all the time I need - I'm never made to feel rushed. I do recommend Dr. Yousefia to my friends.
1. My son and I are not elderly! 2. Dr.Yousefia was in ER when my son came in really, really sick. 3. Whenever we have come into his office, he has always taken enough time, never rushed us. 4. Get to know the staff. 5.As for the Dr. going over the medication, he has always gone over it with me. to reassure me Iam not getting one Iam allergic to. Yes, there are times when not feeling well-I don't hear everything he says, so ask him to jot it down! BUT-when you get your prescriptions there is usually a printout explaining what the medicine is, what it looks like(if not a picture), when to take it, what not to take it with, etc. I recommend him in a heart beat. I trust him with my life and my kids lives!
DR. YOUSEFIA: THE BEST DOCTOR I've had since I was a kid. Almost 30 years now since I had a doctor I RESPECTED and trusted like my doctor my family had when I was growing up! I found Dr. Yousefia to be a doctor who really cares about me & my family. Who is brilliant, sensitive, easy going, & a good listener. He's an excellent communicator & his staff is just as wonderful. I feel great about my over all health care now after finding Dr. Yousefia. I can tell Dr. Yousefia anything. Before I had doctors I couldn't stand to go see but got stuck with until I could find a new doctor taking new patients. Or that were good doctor's, but I couldn't open up to because I wasn't made to feel at all comfortable with expressing myself-being me, or comfortable about asking my average citizen-no medical school education jane doe questions. Whatever is on my mind Dr. Yousefia takes time to educate & soothe me after I educate him about me first. We have a really great relationship. I recommend him.
I guess Dr. Yousefia is an okay doctor. He seems helpful enough and I never had to wait very long in the waiting room... but he doesn't accept credit cards (which is horrible if you use a HSA). To make matters worse, he took months and months to cash checks that I had written to him. Also, when I had extensive blood work done, I had to call several times before I could get him to call back with my results. It was just easier to find a more attentive doctor.
Dr. Andre Yousefia is a wonderful primary care doctor. After 30 years with 1 doctor, I switched because through word of mouth I was informed his main office lady was one of the best, informative, responsive and caring, at which point I made an office visit and found this to be more than true. My experience was one of the best I have ever had. This doctor took an hour and one-half first time visit with me, then my experience with his office manager and M.A. was the best I have ever received. I have called back on several occasions and have had nothing but immediate response from this wonderful doctor and his wonderful caring staff. If more doctors were this caring, the hospitals would not be full of patients.
His office staff are the rudest, most awful people I've ever run across in a Dr's office. The Dr apologized for their behavior and while others have complained as well, he keeps the same people on staff. He's in a hurry and simply doesn't take the time to get all the details. Most of his patients are elderly.
