When I explained to her my concerns over eating fish due to Fukishima, and is still going into the ocean from Japans leftover meltdown. She said her major was in radiation and there is nothing to worry about some is safe! I am not sure where she studied but I know there is no amount of safe radiation. Also my mother went to her and to get blood work done, and I wanted her to test for heavy metals. She asked the Dr. to and she told her she did not need it! Howd she get her license?!

Honestly, I'm surprised that Dr. Lessani still has her medical license. She doesn't seem to understand or comprehend simple conversation and frequently gets confused. I believe she may have difficulty hearing, which causes her to not understand what you are saying making discussion with her extremely frustrating. It's hard to trust the medical opinion of a doctor who doesn't seem to understand what the problem is.

Office and staff are nice. Wait time moderate, but compared to other Scripps doctor of the same location/ building, it's a longer wait. She kind of brushes off everything I have to say. I don't feel like she is really listening to my description of my symptoms and concerns. does not explain things well and just mumbles or says it's ok when I ask for explanation of symptoms, disease, conditions, or reason to ordering certain lab tests. She does not let you finish your sentences!
