Ratings for Dr. Alex A. Khadavi
My 79 year old mother went in to see Dr. Alex Khadavi 6.28.17 at 16260 Ventura Blvd, Encino, CA 91436 for a skin cancer check and was up-sold on what he called a “much needed” varicose vein procedure. My mother couldn’t give "Informed Consent" as she is mostly deaf and in early stage cognitive decline, also they have her / my medial POA in the office AND I was in the waiting room waiting for her. They never came to get me, to ask me, to talk to her. NO pre-operative directions were provided as it was NOT planned, and NO post op instructions were given leaving my mom at risk of infection or even death from possible blood clots as you DO NOT do this procedure on a woman her age... nor do you do it in 15 minutes, in a laying down position, nor do you use the solution we believe he used, nor do you let a person leave without wrapping their legs in compression garments. My mom was then charged $450 on the way out, although she is Medicare and has a PPO back up she was told insurance wouldn’t cover procedure, which she was NOT told in advance... BUT the office filed and were then paid by her insurance then refused to refund her, which is medical fraud. COMPLAINT WITH AETNA / MEDICARE # G-17240837349 CLERK ERIN B. # A-105822 My mom's ankle area which was injected (note this is an area never to be injected due to lack of blood flow and risk of infection see links attached), opened up a few days after the procedure with a large gaping HOLE, of dead necrotic tissue, bleeding and swelling. We called the office over several days as this got progressively worse for my mom and were told to “put some Neosporin and a Band-Aid on hole” for a week, then come back and see doctor. On 7.8.17 the nurse saw my mom for brief visit with the doctor, he ended up doing the “bandied and Neosporin”, said it will be fine during 5-minute visit! I had to take her to ankle and foot specialist for several treatments from 7.06 - 7.20.2017 but her ankle got progressively worse and worse, so he sent us to Hyperbaric Oxygen 1125 S Beverly Dr #405, Los Angeles, CA 90035 from 7.30.17 - 8.05.17 and the non-wound healing center for specific care at Cedars Sinai Hospital 8.3.17 - 9.13.17. The doctor remarked that she never should have had this procedure done let alone in her ankle area and that Dr. Khadavi was negligent in her pre-post op care and responsible for her injuries!!! It took 5 months and its almost healed, but the pain, inability to drive and expense for a procedure that any competent doctor would have at referred her to a medical specialist if he felt it was necessary, let alone her out of pocket is somewhere between negligence and malpractice.

Dr. Khadavi is, by far, the best Dermatologist that I have seen. He is aggressive and thorough. His bedside manner is second to none always taking time to make you feel comfortable and at ease. I have referred numerous friends to Dr. Khadavi and all have been very thankful for the referral. One of the best Doctors in his profession.
was reccomended to Dr.Khadavi through my cousin. making an appointment took about 3 weeks, but well worth thye wait.he seems to be very busy so my office visit was short. staff was more than helpful with any questions i had. i will say i left concerned on weather or not Dr. had spent enough time with me to really figure out what my skin contioin was because i am someone who wants every detail.which is the only thing i wish he spent more time in my consultation which left me feeling weary .to my suprise i have to say that it has been exactly one week since my visit and my skin is 85% better already. so i will recomend this doc to anyone. he may not spend to much time with you but he knows what hes doing. i am so happy that my skin has cleared up this much already. i will deffinatley be a returning patient!!!!!more than happy with my exzema clearing up already! i thought i would never get better. thank you Dr. Khadavi. perscription was a bit pricy but worth every penny
I went to get Botox done & when dr. khadavi walked into the door he looked like a 25 yr old .. i wasnt sure if it was the doc or not but he was!=) that made me feel like i was at the right place cause you dont want to go to a Dermatologist who looks ugly & old cause that means hes not good in the field of making you look young, if he cant make himself young.. hellooo.. True. So anyways i asked him to num my forhead so i dnt feel any pain & i didnt.. Yay! I LOVE how smooth my forehead looks & how my eyes opened up a little. BTW hes a Dimond Botox injector saw the certificate on wall... which means he injects more Botox than other doctors. If your getting Botox done Alex Khadavi is the way to go!!!
If you want your lips enhanced - this is the doctor to see. He never over does them. Also - I have botox done regularly and one time it didn't take so he redid the procedure at no charge. He suggested it - I didn't have to ask. I highly recommend him.
