I had bilateral pneumonia and developed asthma as a 32-year-old last year, and Dr. Hakimi was the one shining light from my dealings with medical professionals during said time. I am extremely grateful and not only do I not fear going to see him; I look forward to it. I can't recommend more.

Horrible service: improper diagnosis, poor treatment, and untrained/unprofessional office staff. The Dr. spent 5 minutes on us for each visit and we were charged around $500. He didn't take the time or try to understand the problem before assigning tests that should be done. The office had refused to give me a quote upfront, reassuring me that my insurance would cover the visit, which they did not. Save your time and money and go to another Dr.

Dr. Babak rushed through the process on every appointment and constantly kept shortening his own recommended time periods needed for the treatment to take effect in order for us to be back in his office quicker. I now know why -- so he can bill, bill and bill without care or adequate time needed between appointments. The treatment did not work needless to say because of rushed "work" on his part. Very disappointed. If you're serious about getting results on sleep issues, please go elsewhere.

I have been seeing Dr Hakimisefat for many years. He has helped me through major breathing problems. I wanted to give up but he never gave up on me. I’m 62 and I have very bad lungs. I was taking a lot of prednisone and he got me off the steroids. A lot of it was finding the correct medications. Sometimes you have stuff that is bad and you want to give up. But Dr Hakimisefat helped me and I’m in a better place without all the steroids.

I had a consultation with Dr Hakimisefat on 7/16/18 regarding the fact I stop breathing at night as I am falling asleep. I was set up with a home sleep study. I picked it up on 7/25/18 and returned it on 7/27/18 as instructed. I called the office on 7/30/18 to find out what the next step would be, I was advised someone would call me. I called 8/3/18 to see if the results were in, I was advised it had not been read yet. I called 8/13/18 and left a message, no one has called me back.

Dr. Hakimi has a warm focused manner thatputs his patients at ease right away. He's highly skilled and diverse in his training, which makes him even more valuable in patient assessment and diagnosis. He has been treating my husband for COPD, a difficult diagnosis to deal as a patient. Even when Dr. Hakimi has deliver hard news, it's done in a non-threatening-yet-firm way. We trust him completely.
