Ratings for Dr. Babak Zamiri
If you do not have a severe case, this doctor is fine. If you, unfortunately, do have a severe case, find someone else. My mother has been his patient for 8 years and she is doing fine. On the other hand, I had a different experience. In his defense, I had an extreme case. He diagnosis me but was unable to stabilized my condition. I prefer doctors that are honest with me and tell me they do not know what to do. Someone who would recommended me to another doctor. This doctor is arrogant. He did not like when I looked for 2nd opinions. He would only visit once in my multiple hospital stays of over 20 days and said he did not know I was still there. My primary doctor eventually transferred me to a good doctor at UCLA.
I've been a patient for a long time never had any problems I like his staff very helpful and and very courteous staff. On the other hand sometimes my wait is longer than I like but I wouldn't want any other Dr. Dr. Zamiri cares about his patients.
I saw the Dr. 8 days ago for the 1st time, have no insurance so the office visit cost me $350 which I pain in full. I had my complete medical record and blood tests from my primary care provider. Dr. confirmed that I have RA but wanted to test my liver before prescribing any medication for me. Told me to call the office Friday afternoon to get the lab results, called Friday no labs...his staff said call Monday...I called Monday no labs, his staff said call Wednesday. I called this morning no labs.....called this afternoon staff said no labs.....My husband wanted to speak with the Dr. they gave him the office manager. He tried to tell her that we have had to basically hound them to find out what is going on. His staff is rude the no not listen they talk over you and make excuses. Office manager said labs are there just waiting for Dr. to review them, she said that he ran all these blood tests that He told us he was not running. So long story short $350 dollars to find out what I already knew and still waiting for some relief to all this inflammation and pain. If I was a Dr. and knew my staff was handling my patients like this I would be beyond upset. Long story short.....I would not recommend this doctor because of his staff.
Do not see this doctor. He cares more about making money than he cares about his patients. His staff leaves you on hold for great lengths. If you call within 15 minutes of opening or closing, frequently they will have phones off and turned over to answering service. He does not respond in an emergency!
Saw him for 10-years. Thought he was great but did not understand why he requested I see him every 3-months. When we were out if town recently I forgot my medication and contacted his office explaining that I only needed a few pills just until I returned home and it was an emergency since the pharmacist and pill contraindications noted if stopped immediately I could have a seizure. This was denied! He is the prescribing doctor. Obviously, he does not care about his patients! I contacted my internist who, thankfully, authorized the 10 pills needed.
I went to him after my doctor recommended him as expert for my condition, fibromyalgia. He was compassionate and understanding and talked to me in a language that I understood. give him and his helpful staff a high mark and I refer all my family and friends to him
He has a reputation as a healer. He diagnosed my fathers disease accurately and provided the best therapy. This after seeing multiple other doctors and being told that he is too old and nothing can be done. Dr. Zamiri gave us a new life. He is explaining everything in so detail that I did not even look at internet for search of answer. I highly recommend him. 10 thumps up
