Ratings for Dr. Alireza Falahati
First off I was in the waiting room for 90 MINUTES before being seen. Second, they are ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE about calling back or returning calls regarding blood tests! I had tests done checking multiple things (one being cancer) and never received a call back with the results. I have called many times requesting te results with no answer from them. I had read some bad reviews before my appt and wish I had listened to them. DO NOT go to Dr. Falahati and honestly I would avoid the entire office completely! They clearly dont care about whats wrong with you and must only be in it for the $$$ WORST EXPERIENCE WITH A DOCTOR AND DOCTORS OFFICE EVER!!!
I did wait over 1 hr to see Dr Falahati. I was hesistant given the reviews. But now 2 years later things are different. His nurse Becky is great. His nurse practioner Dave is also great. Daves nurse not so great but Becky is always there and helpful. No, you don't get to see the Dr every time. But his staff is so much better than when I started. Dave and Becky are super and when you see Dr Falahati he is good. I didn't find him arrogant at all. But he does tell it like it is. So, sometimes the truth hurts. My last Dr never told me how seriously my actions were affecting my health. Now I am healthier and happier and Dr. Falahti, Dave and Becky are responsible for that.
Only saw Falahati once. Had blood tests done, never called me back. It took six weeks and numerous phone calls before someone could give me results. After surgery I was seen by his PA who possessed very little knowledge of my situation. In fact he didn't know why I was there. Will never return to this clinic.
Most of the negative comments about this doctor were right on. The only time I've seen him he wanted me to take a bunch of tests and then come back in 3 months! I didn't know the results took 3 months (they didn't). Very snotty female assistant.
I had to insist on seeing a doctor not a nurse practitioner. And I worry that I keep recving increasing dosages of thyroid medicine without a blood test to confirm my TSH, T4, T3 levels. It is impossible to reach him by phone or to have a call returned. Has not happened in years. (ever) (and yes, this is the only endocrinologist my insurance will accept) But, he IS friendly. Very very busy but friendly.
Dr.Falahati's competence level exceeds any expectations. His area of expertise is wider than endocrinology. He succeeded in curing my "IBS symptoms" when gastro-enterologist and internal med doctor failed repeatedly.Dr.is highly educated professional, keeps up with all the new advances of medicine. Strongly recommend to anybody.
