We were at this office over two hours today and didn’t see even a nurse! The front office is not friendly at all. I don’t think they like their jobs. We left after waiting such a long time so am unable to review the doctor himself.

I had no problems with Dr. Yazdani but his STAFF is another issue. They are the most difficult people to work with the patient. Many a time I have requested information to be sent to other medical places and they say they will do it but they never do. I would not recommend his staff for any patient.

I saw this quack today, NEVER AGAIN!! He was condescending, arrogant, and had a total disregard for anything in my medical history from another Dr. questioned IF I REALLY HAVE MS! I have had multiple surgeries over the years, for chronic knee issues, did I "JUST LIKE HAVING SURGERY". insinuated that I was on too many meds, wanted to be sick, and on disability for convenience!! I assured him I would much rather go back to Critical Care Nursing,than live in horrible spasms and pain! A disgrace!!
