Ratings for Dr. Rasha A. Hashad
This review is for Dr. Rasha Hashad, if you can even call her a doctor. I was referred here by the South Coast Medical Group after having an abnormal pap smear results. South Coast's PA Christina Schulz told me to call and schedule and they would send in my results. I called Mission OB/Gyn and had to BEG to see a female doctor. I am uncomfortable with male gynos but I shouldn't have to explain that or beg to a front desk workers but yeah I was forced to explain why I didn't want a random man touching me down there.... they were not able to get me an apt for months. I was told to try calling them everyday to see if there are cancelations if its "actually important".. I was fine waiting so took the apt and after waiting for months I arrive by 3, by 4:30 I am finally led into Dr Rasha's office where she proceeds to listen to my issue and goes through all of my paperwork but then proceeds to tell me she doesn't have the pap smear results so there is nothing she can do. I tell her I work 8-5 and I cannot miss another day of work and had to specifically ask for time off to be able to come and could she please just perform the exam to ensure that everything is okay down there? South Coast wanted a specialist to see the cells and just check me out but she told me its 4:30 and she is tired and ready to go home. Talk about your Hippocratic oath. She was the most self centered, horrible person I have met in a while... AKA Do NOT come here as it is so obvious they do not care about patient's, only money. Biggest waste of 2 hours of my life.
Dr. Hashad is AMAZING! She is so gentle, caring and kind and always makes you feel like she has nothing more important than tending to you. She is friendly and sweet and even though I know she is overbooked, I am never rushed out of there. She really listens and responds to concerns. When I had problems in my first pregnancy, she was thoughtful and reassuring, calling me during her days off and over the weekend. I've never had a doctor do that. I had experience with 2 other Ob/ Gyns before we moved to South Orange County and she is by far the best I could imagine. I can't recommend her enough- and I have sent several friends to her. They all love her. I thought her staff was good, but nothing remarkable.
I picked dr hashad b/c of her excellent ratings. She did not disappoint. She is an elegant, empathetic and knowledgable physician. She delivered a co workers baby, and she just raved about her. I am planning on getting pregnant soon and will definitely choose her as my ob.
I had a previous OB who was horrible. I was recommended to Hashad. She has an incredible bedside manner. She takes the time to cover all our questions, is patient and makes herself available as much as possible. She delivered our daughter in 07. Then she called me personally over the weekend, when she was off, to inform us of test results for our miscarriage in '10. To the relief of my husband & myself, she performed the D & C even though she was feeling unwell that day. Dr. Hashad is about to deliver our son next month! Her staff has varied in the last 4 years, but the current assistant is friendly & efficient. The M.A. she had in 07, was incredible, but her family had to move. I highly recommend Dr. Rasha Hashad, due to her upbeat manner, intelligence, efficiency, easy-going attitude and ability to put people at ease.
