Ratings for Dr. Nooshin Darvish
Stay away from this doctor - she's arrogant, cavalier, and dangerous. I went to Dr. Darvish needing specific IV treatments closer to my home. I am very ill, very sensitive to treatments, with a complex diagnosis and treatment plan from 3 of the best NDs in Seattle. I just needed the specific treatment, which I was assured in advance by the office and a patient that were easily delivered by Holistique. I was very dismayed when, after an hour long wait, she ignored my health history, extensive labs, diagnosis and treatment plan, and subjected me to an hour of "muscle testing." She didn't touch me, instead bringing in another doctor to stand between us, while she flipped pages of a notebook. She then made several statements about my health that are untrue, and refused to provide the requested and carefully developed IV protocol, offering to give me IVs of silver. She ordered lab work, some of it my other doctor had been doing regularly and the rest which showed nothing. Had she bothered to look at the information I brought her, she might have understood what's the matter with me and what I needed. Instead I got a $400 experience that was utterly worthless and could have damaged my delicate health further. I've had high quality naturopathic treatment for 8 years. What I saw at this office was dangerous - it's a slick setup designed to separate people from their money with no thought for the damage that could be done to them by careless treatment due to poor diagnosis and selection of treatments. There are many more competent NDs in this area. This one gives naturopathic a bad name...stay away.
Although Dr. Darvish provided a basic plan relating to my health issues which was generally good, I felt she wasn't on target overall. I was prescribed supplements (I think some were her house brand) that were costly and not helpful. My friend had a similar experience having been prescribed a lot of supplements for her daughter which were very costly and did not help. She talked about Lyme's Disease during my visit as well as my friend's visit, but neither one of us have Lyme's Disease and did not see her for that purpose. Some of the staff members were helpful, but some were flat out rude and unhelpful. There are long wait times in her office and it was extremely difficult to get copies of my chart notes after my appointments. My friend and I were both left with the feeling that Dr. Darvish was trying to meet some kind of sales/financial goal with crowded appointments and expensive supplements that could not be returned and that we didn't think were necessary. I won't go back.
Without a doubt, Dr. Darvish provided the worst doctor/medical experience in my 57 years. I have many examples of her arrogance and disorganization. However, there is a bigger issue and for the sake of space here, I will summarize this way: More than 4 MD’s, and another ND with a specialty in Oncology, told my husband he was terminally ill; in our first visit with her, Dr. Darvish told him she would ‘prove his Oncologist wrong’. He was desperate and took her advice for numerous office visits and many, often invasive, tests and treatments. We spent thousands of dollars on pills, powders, oxygenated water, supplements, IV treatments, colonics and more. He passed away. I am not angry at her for that as that was inevitable with the type of cancer and other health problems he had. I am angry, though, because I witnessed how much time he lost and how uncomfortable he was in his last several months diligently trying her many suggested treatments (none of which were pleasant). I am angry because I believe she saw the desperation in my husband which equated to a nice source of income that she seemingly took advantage of, right up until he died.
About 4 years ago I came back from a vacation with health issues that my regular doctor Couldn't resolve/diagnois & I was told I was ok & nothing was wrong with me & I knew better, my neck was stiff, I couldn't get out of bed, I had tingling all over my body & I felt like I was in a fog! Dr. Darvish helped me to feel like me again, I' m so thankful for Dr.Darvish & Holistic Medical Center. thanks Sandee Neaves
Lots of money spent on treatments that made me feel TERRIBLE, but no results in my health getting better. I actually got worse according to blood tests and ending up in the hospital. I am pretty sure this is a business of taking money from sick people, with no proof that any of the treatments help the patient get better. Now that I am working with another doctor, my blood test are improving along with how I feel. Save your money and don't waste your time with all the ridiculous treatments and "voodoo" the doctor will tell you about on why you are not felling better.
My child NEVER was sicker than she was when she was under Dr. D's care. She had me stop giving her milk and told me to have her drink soy milk which ends up she is allergic to. She also told me that my child had all sorts of parasites in her stomach and wanted me to give her deworming meds. I showed the test results to my child's pediatrician and to her allergist at Children's Hospital and they said Dr D did not know how to read the test results and that she was completely wrong! Luckily I did not have my child take the deworming medicine. Keep your kids away from this woman!
Awful experience from beg to end.Charge $80 upfront to secure appt, then was told during appt they don't contract with United, so would be responsible for bill (but couldn't give me any kind of estimate).Then they had my daughter's last name & DOB wrong on the paperwork they asked me to sign in agreement to unknown charges, and they couldn't fix the errors in the system.Then we waited 20 min in an overcrowded waiting room, then taken to the back by a nurse who couldn't figure out the scale to weigh my daughter-I had to help her out;then she couldn't locate a thermometer and just said 'oh well, we don't need to take a temp I guess'. Then we waited for Dr.Darvish but never showed up.45 min later we went to the front desk and told them we had to leave to get my son from the sitters.They said it was a crazy day.I asked for a refund and they just nodded.I called back next day to confirm they would refund, and they were quite rude and said 'it takes 3 days'.Total waste of my time!
