Ratings for Dr. Farhad Sholevar


Let's start with the good parts, first the office is nice and clean, a little confusing to find at first but overall 5. Now on to the bad, the receptionist is not a real people person to say the least. Speaking to her you would assume that she is the doctor, and that was her office. Next, the first appt. was with the nurse practitioner, she gave me a once over and asked about if I needed any medication refills, she didn't know they still made one of the medicines that I've been on for almost 20 years. She said she knew my previous Dr. who had just retired, and said he was a good Dr., which I totally agree with. Then she said that she would see me again in 3 months. After rescheduling the next appt. a day later the receptionist calls and said that the Dr. wanted to see me instead of the nurse, so I made the new appt with the Dr. Then when I had a month's worth of medicine left I called my insurance company to request the refills from my new Dr. A few days later the receptionist calls me and says that the Dr. doesn't prescribe this medicine and he was going to change it to another one, and he thought that this dosage was to high on another medicine so he was going to lower that. All these changes before I had even met the man. No future plan of action, no step by step, "This is what I would like to do", just I don't like this so i'm changing it. Then the receptionist says "if you don't like the Dr.'s decision then you are free to go somewhere else." So now I am off to another Dr. So my advice would be to make sure your new Dr. will work with your current "cocktail" before just jumping over to a new one.
