Ratings for Dr. Shehryar Mahmood
First off, I have a few things to say since I have been reading to a lot of nonsense on here. People are entitled to their ranting but its not true or accurate! I have been a patient of Dr Mahmood for over 5 years and let me tell you, he is truly amazing of a doctor and really cares about the patients. I have been to several doctors and they keep giving me the run around. Yes, there may be a little wait but only for new patients because he wants to take his time with them. He spends about 45 minutes to an hr with most of the patients, new or established. No doctor would do that, not even in the Emergency Room. I know because I have spent about 8 hrs in the ER, and nothing happened. Got no help at all. As for his staff of only ONE! Ally, his office manager. She is very sweet, kind, honest and extremely helpful. She does everything from answering the phones to the faxes, referrals, medications and even rooming the patients. Its truly incredible how one person can do the job of 10 people, if you go to any other doctor's office; you will be overwhelmed with all the people just sitting there and not doing anything! this doctor and his staff of 2 now are truly amazing... they are worth it every time I go and they answer all their calls. so to all the haters out there! you are hating cause you are inpatient and want your pain meds!
i love him he is the best in the world the the other people don´t know what there are talking about i love him soooooooo much he is the best and the staff don´t get me started on the staff they are very professional so nice and careful i could´nt ask for a better docter and staff in the whole world thank yoooooooouuuuuu so much
Firstly it was hard to make an appointment because the phone rarely gets answered the first time. Secondly, I had to wait forever for both visits (there will not be a third visit). On the second visit the receptionist asked if I had an appointment because they had no record of my appointment. I showed her my appointment card that she gave me on my previous visit. Also, they do not take credit cards and require cash or a check. They also have to scurry around to find change if you pay with cash. On my first visit I was referred to a cardiologist but in the three weeks between my two visits the staff was not able to make a referral. I never got that??? The doctor, I assume , may be a good doctor but he is not a good listener and is arrogant.
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.
