I visited Dr. Imani and was unsatisfied with the level of care and service he provided. I visited him regardless of his poor reviews because he is the closest psychiatrist to me. I should have sucked it up and drove to Valencia. Imani is hands down the worst "doctor" I have ever come across and I've visited many physicians in the past. I'm appalled that a man like this is actually practicing medicine. He was treating me for depression, despite me not having problems with depression. I also didn't have a problem with anxiety but once again he jumped to conclusions and diagnosed me with depression and anxiety. I told him that I have a problem with restlessness and I guess this means anxiety. He led me to answer questions the way he wanted me to, by using his clever questioning techniques he diagnose me with depression! I don't have a problem with depression, I'm paraphrasing here but he asked me if I ever feel sad and I thought "who doesn't". When I visited him today as a follow up appointment, it started off well. Things took a turn for the worst when I told him I didn't like the way the current medication made me feel. He prescribed me depression and anxiety medication and guess what? It wasn't making me feel good because I don't need to be taking that Me: "I don't like how this medication makes me feel" Imani: "Your brain doesn't gage improvements very well" Me:" I feel this medication is making things worse for me" Imani: "WHAT DO YOU WANT!?" "I'm not prescribing you medication A or B" Me: "I never asked you for medication A or B, I just said I didn't like how this made me feel". Imani: "you need to get organized" "Here is this medication but its not as good as the one you are on now". (pulls out phone) " here is the medication C I'm prescribing you" (I don't even know how to interpret the data on his phone he is showing me) Me: "thanks I guess" BTW there isn't more to this story, in case you're wondering I didn't go to med school so why would a Psychiatrist ask me what medication I want? 250 dollars an hour is what he charges! Spent 10 minutes with him but I'm sure my insurance will get billed for the full amount. Had he spent the full hour with me to properly diagnose me correctly, I wouldn't be walking out of there with a medication that wasn't what I needed. Do not take your children to him, I'm 31 years old and if he did this to me then your child doesn't stand a chance! This man needs to revisit his Hippocratic oath. Do yourself a favor, suck it up and drive to a reputable doctor.

Dr. Imani, although pleasant to talk with, prescribed my husband medicine that only aggravated his condition and made it worse, even after his spouse continued to tell him the behavior she observed. This had a very negative affect on every aspect of our life for two years. I would not recommend his services.

I brought my 6 y/o son to Dr. Imani because he is mildly autistic with ADHD and other psychiatrists in the area had not been very helpful. Dr. Imani's own son has mild retardation and ADHD, so he knows what its like to raise a special needs child. He listened to the concerns I had and was great with my son. He prescribed an excellent combination of medications and my son has improved significantly. The only thing is that Dr. Imani requests that my husband and I both be present during my sons appointment and sometimes he asks questions that seem a little too personal. Also, he has a very heavy middle eastern accent which makes him difficult to understand and he is usually running an hour or so behind, otherwise he is as good as you will find the Antelope Valley.
