He asks you a question, then he turns his head to stare at you when you answer like he's judging you and what you just said. What is the point of being honest is he's going to question and judge? After my very first session of this, I kept my mouth shut and wouldn't open up to him at all. He's supposed to be here to help me, not make me feel guilty about being me. I should have asked for a different doctor, but I thought he was going to stare me down if I even mentioned it. I saw 2 other doctors prior to him and they were spectacular so I had assumed he'd be just as great. My visits with him have left me with anxiety about seeing other psychiatrists. I saw him for approximately one year over a decade ago.

Overall I was not happy with my time spent with Dr. Lotfi. It seemed to me he was more interested in his check than he was with my well being. When asking for help, it always came with a price, his time was more important than anyone else's. I understand being compensated fairly for your work and time spent, but the first thing out of someone's mouth should not be their hourly rate. He had an overall arrogant attitude that made me feel like we weren't moving anywhere towards finding a solution to my problems. Nothing else mattered as long as he was able to collect his check.

This doctor showed zero interest in my issues and actually made my anxiety worse. His attitude was terrible and he made decisions that other medical professionals I have seen since were baffled by - he is someone who is doing the bare minimum to collect a paycheck. The administrative team at Harding is aware of his issues but they continue to employ which means OSU does not really care about the quality of their care at Harding.

The doctor outer appearance was NOT professional, messy hair and clothings. But outside of that, he's an arrogant man, very loud and his tone of voice was condescending to me as the mother of one of his patient. Every few words I said, was discounted abruptly. Basically he would not want to hear whatever I was trying to relay to him. He gave an appearance "could not be bothered", which I extremely DO NOT appreciate, remember, my insurance & my pocket is paying for his so called "service".

We found Dr. Lotfi-Fard not really wanting to help my son. We expressed needing urgent help and he had scheduled a next appt for one month later. Then, I got another appt where he interviewed me for my son, and I felt that he asked me the most irrelevant questions to help my son. It was like I was starting a fire with 575.00 last week. OUCH. I am not happy with him and him not helping except to take our money. I will not be having my son go back to this Doctor.

If one is a doctor I expect that one to be attentive and qualified or at least adequate. This individual did not know how to do any of the traits I mentioned. I found him coarse, surly, and somewhat of a oppressor. I do not recommend this doctor to anyone, because of his atrocious bedside manners. That's all.
