Ratings for Dr. Shehryar Mahmood
This doctor in and of himself is a fine doctor. However, his staff is revoltingly rude, callous and makes decisions about whether or not the doctor may see patients based on subjection. Today, for the second time in my experience with this office I was completely humiliated by this primary care doctor's receptionist. She entirely disregarded my appointment, acted as though she had no idea who I was even though lab results had been sent to her on October 29th, and two days later, according to LabCorp who drew my blood as requested by said doctor. He is located on Bob Hope Drive in Palm Desert and I had a positive experience the very first time I made an appointment but was only able to finally see him after waiting for 1 1/2 hours without the staff letting me or other patients in the waiting room know what was going on. The receptionist was incredibly rude this day as well and two other patients in the waiting room offered the same sentiments. This receptionist is mean, inept and making important decisions for human beings with critical health issues. Avoid this medical office at all costs.
The staff is very rude. I waited 2 hours with in appointment to see the dr . I had blood work done that I wanted the results for I called thursday the receptionist told me she would call me back with the results . On Monday I called they keep putting me on hold and would hang up on me .5 times I called still have not gotten my results .
I agree, his staff is very rude and unprofessional. It's a very "take it or leave it!" atmosphere. One or two are a bit friendly, but the one in charge is extremely abrupt. I gave punctuality one star because it usually takes about a month to see him, though when you do he's quite knowledgeable.
The worst office assistant ever. "Ollia" is quite the power hungry curmudgeon. Cancelled Rx to find "Doctor does not want to treat me. I find her inadequate . She made quite the show that she does not pick up the phone after 12noon. She does not call back. The machine jams from so many callers she does not bother with it. Doctor should know what she is doing. Driving away patients. AVOID AT ALL COST. CURRENTLY FILED COMPLAINT/GREIVANCE.
Dr. Mahmood was very professional with a very pleasant disposition. He took time and showed concern. I was very impressed with Dr. Mahmood, and pleased to have found a doctor I not only feel comfortable with, but one who is attentive to my medical needs.
Most of the time these days people are undermedicated where pain medication is concerned, not overmedicated. I hear the original commentor stating that the family and the nurse all agreed the patient was overmedicated. I do not see any indication that the patient was asked. The doctor is in a better position to know what his patient needs. There is some reason he is the patients doctor. Also nurses tend to work for hospitals and have a different agenda and often try to ride herd over physicians who tend to be independent contractors. I agree with the doctor and do not know anyone concerned.
Dr. Mahmood attempted to over medicate a patient. The the patient, family and nurse staff all agreed that patient was not in need of the dose of narcotics that the Dr. Mahmood prescribed. He disagreed with administering the medication by scaling the dose in 1mg increments and he walked out on the hospitalized patient, quit and instructed the family and patient not to do his job. The amount of pain medication give to patient over next three day period equated to 1/3 of the initial dose Dr. Mahmood insisted on!
Good doc...listens to patients. Try's to get patients to do herbal / natural remedies instead of pushing pills.
