We arrived 11 minutes late to our appointment due to heavy traffic and road construction. We were told we would have to reschedule, this after our appointment was canceled and rescheduled 2 weeks earlier because of his schedule issue. Dr Shamloo very rudely reprimanded me and told me it was our responsibility to leave in time to get to our appointment 10 minutes before our scheduled appointment. We had to wait on him before, but that’s different, right? His time is valuable and ours isn’t?

I love that he does not just give you narcotics but instead, he gave me a list of non narcotic items to try to help my pain. He did a nerve block on my back to ease the cancer pain in my chest that I have had for 2 years. It was like he performed a miracle. Spot on! He is professional and to the point and takes care of business. No wasted time with him! I am grateful he did not just throw more pills at me and knew exactly how to improve my quality of life by lowering my pain. SIX STARS!

Dr. Shamloo is very impatient, inconsiderate and wouldn't give you time to explain your concerns.

I have been taking hydrocodone and oxycodone for years. Due to primary doctor leaving the network I needed to find a Pain Specialist. I Decided to have Dr. Shamloo at Cedar Sinai Pain Center, help with my chronic pain and migraines. I explained to him the extreme pain I was and he prescribed CoQ10!!!! I didn't know what he prescribed until I dropped off the prescription at my local CVS. The pharmacist told me that it was an over the counter "SUPPLEMENT". I will be filing a complaint!!!

Bad. Suggested I do a procedure that I had already had even though it did not work. Yelled at me when I didn't think it was the right move. Didn't care that my pain has interfered with work. Will not help you, plain and simple.
