Dr. Dikranian is truly compassionate and caring. He has been most helpful and is understanding of my medical conditions.

After a recurrence of PMR, the nurse said she wasn't allowed to reach contact him and she would get back to me in a couple of days!. He doesn't believe in communicating through patient portals like Follow My Health. On two occasions it was three days before I got a response from his nurse.I was in so much pain I could not walk or get in/out of bed. I went for a second opinion and it turns out that Dr. D did not ask for labs tests to confirm the diagnosis. I was given medication I didn't need!

I would never go back to or recommend Dr. DIKranian as a physician. I have had rheumatoid arthritis for 27 years and have seen several doctors relating to this disease however I have never encountered a doctor with such strict and unbending rules pertaining to appointments. My last appointment with Dr. DiKranian was scheduled for 3:00. Due to bad traffic I arrived at 3:04 and he refused to see me. He would not give me an exception since this was the 1st time in a year that I was late. Do not go!

Dr Dikranian is knowledgeable and explains the situation and options well. He has a very positive and calm demeanor
